My name is Anna Chrystal and I am the Education and Outreach Officer at the London Museum of Water & Steam.
The London Museum of Water and Steam, formerly Kew Bridge Steam Museum, explores the story of London’s water supply as the vital lifeblood of our city. We have the world’s largest collection of Cornish cycle steam engines including the largest in the world still in steam on its original site.
In 1804 Scottish born Richard Trevithick invented the first working Steam Locomotive, initially used to transport resources. Trevithick's invention sparked a number of steam related transportation inventions, including George Stephenson infamous Rocket, the first passenger Steam Locomotive.
Use this informative and visual sheet as an aid to understanding this remarkable machine. Suitable for KS3.
