History of RailroadsTrack the development of this important early transportation network
Steaming through the history of railroads
In 1829, The Stourbridge Lion became the first locomotive to chug along a track in the United States. The railway industry later saw an enormous building boom from the 1830s to the 1860s, with railroads supplanting canals as a prime source of transportation in America.

Today, railroads pepper the world and pay homage to a history of innovation by linking metropolises and rocketing the transport of goods.
