Nickel's New Railway, 1845. Creator: Unknown

Nickel's New Railway, 1845. Messrs. Keene and Nickels have just patented a novel system of Railway Locomotion, which is founded on principles stated not to have been hitherto applied to the communication of mechanical motion. The patentees have constructed a working model of their invention in York road, Waterloo-road, which has been already inspected by several persons of scientific eminence...The proprietors term their system a new Atmospheric Method of Propulsion; but this name is unphilosophically incorrect. Atmospheric Air is, certainly, the propulsive agent; but its elasticity is the property made available in this invention; so that all gaseous bodies might be made serviceable for the above purpose. In short, as observed in the Railway Record, "the system is founded on the expansive force of a compressed aeriform fluid; and might, with propriety, be designated, Propulsion by the Expansion of Condensed Air or Gas"'. From "Illustrated London News", 1845, Vol VII

Third class passengers, 1844. Creator: Unknown

Third class passengers, 1844. Railway travellers exposed to the elements: The rattling pig-pens upon wheels, misnamed third-class carriages (before the late alterations), were despicable affairs, with the wonderful property of always meeting the rain in whatever quarter the wind might be blowing. They were a species of horizontal shower-bath, from whose searching power there was no escape....There was no escaping the rain. If you turned your back to it, it filled the nape of your neck; if you faced it, you had overflowing pockets, with an additional cataract from the front rim of your hat, which before long was as limp as wet brown paper...Everything was ruined from your health downwards, and these were called"cheap excursions"'. From "Illustrated London News", 1844, Vol V
