The ancient Romans contributed to the invention of Railroads, revered as the Appian Way. Constructed of stone blocks, fitted closely together, rendered a smooth hard track for wheels. In the 1600′s tracks or roadways were constructed in London, Pisa, and Milan and other cities. In 1630, Beaumont built and invented rails on a highway, for the transport of coal from the Mines in New Castle, England. Roger North testifies to railways being used on the river “Tyne” in 1676; with rails of timber placed end to end, in parallel lines. Thus – bulky Carts of Coal were placed on four-rollers, making a Horse-Drawn Carriage- easy. Railways were present in Scotland in 1745, during the Scotch rebellion. Here some of the earliest rails, had a round moulding of wood pinned to the rails, combined with wheels hollowed out like a Pulley, allowing the wheel to fit upon the “Wooden Rail”. Fortunately, our Pedal Trains do not follow a Wooden Rail, rather ride on solid rubber tires, equipped with working headlight and bell, cattle guard, adjustable pedal assembly, and padded seat, all steel body wrapped in a high luster Powder Coat finish. Surely, your ‘Lil’ Engineer will be thrilled to “Whistle” along the track, and reap memories for a lifetime.
