The idea of the railway probably traces its origins to Roman times, when many of their stone paved roads were set with long, smooth stones which would accommodate the wheels of their chariots.
By the 16th century, mining engineers used tramroads, commonly with wooden rails, to ease the movement of loaded mine wagons (known as trams or drams). Such tramroads existed in Britain by the mid-17th century, although reports of a railway in Nottinghamshire were mentioned as early as 1602.
By the start of the 19th century, tramroads often ran for considerable distances taking coal from its source to the point of consumption. In 1804, Richard Trevithick demonstrated the first practical steam locomotive engine. The first public railway as we know today carrying passengers was the Stockton & Darlington Railway which was introduced in 1825.
A train has many carriages (or cars) linked together. The first carriage of a train is called a locomotive. It has an engine. It gives the train power to move along a railroad track. When a train travels, it may carry many people. It can also take a lot of goods. If a train is to take people to different places, it is called a passenger train. If a train is to deliver goods to different places, it is called a freight train.
About two hundred years ago, the first locomotive was made in England. A steam engine was used then. The locomotive was able to pull ten tons of iron, seventy people, and five wagons for about nine miles. Later on, the English people made the first train that ran at regular times.
In the 1960s and early 1970s, considerable interest developed in the possibility of building tracked passenger vehicles that could travel much faster than conventional trains. From the 1970s, interest in an alternative high-speed technology centred on magnetic levitation, or maglev. This vehicle rides on an air cushion created by electromagnetic reaction between an on-board device and another embedded in its track.
1. The first trains can be found fifteen hundred years ago.
2. Coal miners were the first people to invent trains.
3. Locomotive is a carriage which carries goods.
4. The maglev trains were developed at the end of the previous century.
5. The first trains in England used magnetic levitation to travel long distances.
6. Freight trains are used to carry passengers.
7. In the text in exercise 6, find the sentences in the Passive Voice and turn them into the Active Voice.
8. Read the tongue-twister as quickly as you can.
