Murdoch cart (1781)
Murdoch cart (1781) - This cart has played a fundamental role in the history of railways because, in fact, it is the very first cart that has been used in England. It was designed by Murdoch, James Watt's assistant, in 1781. However, it was never practically tested until 1784 in Redruth. Of course it wasnt a real train that can carry passengers or commodities, but it worked good enough to prove that steam can be used as a fuel in transportation.
