Trains are one of the most fascinating inventions ever. They are complex to build, but they are so cool. Here are some facts on trains.

  • Trains have been around since 1804 when Englishman Richard Trevithick wanted something to get around with that was faster, so he built the first ever steam powered train
  • Here is how a steam train works. A steam train has a furnace room where you store coal. The coal heats up to make steam above it, and the steam then turns a piston round and round to move the train.
  • A train has a series of containers it pulls to hold and transport things.
