One thought on “Georgian Era Iron Horses: The Advent of the Steam Locomotive

  1. Thanks so much for the informative post. My newest Regency mystery, The Doppelganger’s Dance, begins with a visit to Leeds to see Murray and Blenkinsop’s locomotive, and I really thought I would be surprising most readers — I know I was surprised to discover that a working model was running during Jane Austen’s time. But if my locomotive will no longer be a surprise, at least people won’t think I’ve gone totally daft; or at least not the people who’ve read your article!
