Steam Transportation

∞STEAM BOATS AND STEAM TRAINS, HEIFER∞

Steam Trains

Steam trains were invented in 1801, but the first steam train was not operated until 1804. They were dominant for transportation from the 19th century to the mid-20th century, when diesel and electric trains began to supersede steam trains. Many of the early trains used in the United States were manufactured in Great Britain. Steam trains were proved to be a force to be reckoned with, as the first steam train was raced against a horse-drawn carriage, but since the steam train lost by so little, it was made famous.

STEAM BOATS

The first steam powered boat was made in 1783, it was made by a Frenchman named Claude-François-Dorothée. The steam boat is a type of boat that runs on the power of steam. This revolutionized river travel with the ability to travel upstream. This helped the economy because cargo was transported faster.
