Engine, tender, and carriage - side view, 1845. Creator: Unknown

Engine, tender, and carriage - side view, 1845. ...a System of Tram-ways composed entirely of Wood, which the inventor, Mr. William Prosser, maintains to be "equally expeditious, and more safe, more durable, and considerably more economical than the iron railway." The main feature of the invention is, however, a system of Guide wheels, which have been patented by Mr. Prosser, and which may be applied either to iron or wooden rails...The rails, or rather trams, of seven to eight inches scantling, are indurated and protected against fire, rot, and insects, by the injection, by successive exhaustion and pressure, of two solutions, mineral and alkaline...The friction and oscillation, and general wear and tear involved in the use of the conical tire and the flange, are thus obviated, and the friction of attrition is converted into a friction of rotation...'. From "Illustrated London News", 1845, Vol VII

Portion of the tube on the line, 1845. Creator: Unknown

Portion of the tube on the line, 1845. Diagram showing part of the track of an atmospheric railway, a system using air pressure for locomotion, invented by Clegg and Samuda. A large tube is laid down in the centre of a line of rails. This tube has an opening at the top, which is closed by a valve, formed of a leather strap, covered with short plates of iron above and below. Now, the strap being broader than the plates, it is pressed against the top of the pipe by a succession of long rods, screwed down with hook bolts, and thus forming a hinge. On the side on which the valve opens is a groove, which is filled with a composition of wax and tallow. It is evident that when the valve is raised, there will be space enough for a bent plate of iron to pass into the tube. From "Illustrated London News", 1845, Vol VII
