Description

Remains of Stephenson's 'Rocket', 1829. The Rocket, designed by Robert Stephenson (1803-1859) and George Stephenson (1781-1848), became famous after winning the Rainhill Trials, a competition set up to establish the most efficient 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).
