Description

The Rocket locomotive, designed by Robert Stephenson (1803-1859) and George Stephenson (1781-1848), became famous after winning the Rainhill Trials of 1829. The Rainhill Trials were a series of speed tests to find the most suitable locomotive for haulage on the Liverpool and Manchester Railway. The Rocket subsequently ran on the Liverpool and Manchester Railway (1829-1836) and the Midgeholme Colliery Railway (1836-1840).
