Description

Aquatint by J Harris, after T T Bury, showing a locomotive crosing a railway bridge. Below the bridge a barge can be seen moving along the canal. In 1833, Robert Stephenson (1803-1859) was appointed chief engineer of the LBR, the first railway into London. Running between Curzon Street Station, Birmingham, and Euston Station, London, the 112 mile long line took 20,000 men nearly five years to build, at a cost of five and a half million pounds. The LBR opened on 17 September 1838.
