Railway development (19th century)

In the 19th century the advances in transportation had its high point in the creation of rail networks where trains circulated towed by steam machines.  Passengers and cargo were transported throughout the civilized world.

No séc. XIX o progresso dos transportes teve o seu ponto alto na criação de redes ferroviárias onde circulavam comboios (trens) rebocados por máquinas a vapor. Transportaram passageiros e carga por todo o mundo civilizado.
