Description

Nameplate from the remains of Stephenson's 'Rocket', 1829. The Rocket, designed by Robert Stephenson (1803-1859) and George Stephenson (1781-1848), became famous by winning the Rainhill Trials of 1829, a competition held at Rainhill in Merseyside to establish the most efficient locomotive for railway haulage on the Liverpool and Manchester Railway. The Rocket ran on the Liverpool and Manchester Railway (1829- 1836) and the Midgeholme Colliery Railway (1836- 1840).
