First usable steam train. Historical engraving of the first usable steam train, built in 1804 by the British engineer Richard Trevithick. This engine was used to haul men and iron at the Penydarren Ironworks, South Wales. Although this engine was accident-prone and attracted little interest, Trevithick's design of a high-pressure steam engine made passenger locomotives a viable prospect.
