The first self-propelling steam engine or steam locomotive made its outing on 13 February 1804 at the Pen-y-Darren ironworks. The machine was designed by Richard Trevithick. The engine was able to pull a load of 15 tons at a speed of about 5 mph.

You Chaps should read the secret santa thread on the board at the moment. It appears there is some discussion on " Gogglemas" and they haven't yet set a date!
