The Rainhill Trials 1829

The Liverpool and Manchester Railway set the standard for the rest of the country and for the world. By successfully applying steam and iron rails to locomotion, a new form of transport was created. This new website explores this phenomenon with a virtual museum, dowloads and much more about where it all began - the Rainhill Trials of 1829.
