Railroads, Canal, and Highways in the Industrial Revolution
Railroads
One of the most important phenomena of the I.R.
First developed in Great Britain by George Stephenson
Iron helped to give the cart a grip on the railroad so it wouldn't turn over

Stephenson Rocket
Built and Designed by George Stephenson with son, Robert, and Henry Booth for the 1829 Rainhill Trail
Reached 24mph in the 20 laps course
Have 25 copper tubes instead of one like others
First locomotive to have a multi-tube boiler
Canals
The Duke of Bridgewater was the most associated with the early canals
James Brindley was assigned the task of building and designing the canals
Used to help moving heavy objects long distances
The first canal took two years to complete and was finished in 1761
Highways
Existed since Roman Times
Have not been maintained since the Roman Times but that stopped at the 1730's onward
Were improved because of an increasing need to transport good created during the time
