“When the Surrey Iron Railway was opened in 1803, The European Magazine reported that ‘the Committee went up in wagons drawn by one horse; and, to show how such motion is facilitated by this ingenious and yet simple contrivance, a gentleman, with two companions, drove up the railway in a machine of his own invention, without horses, at the rate of fifteen miles per hour.’   This latter tale, if true, would seem to anticipate the locomotive by ten years” (Smart, 51).
