Rocket Returns

Tuesday 25th of September to Sunday 28th of April
by Georgia (follow)
Stephensons Rocket will return to Manchester for the first time in over 180 years, opening to the public on Tuesday 25 September.

Rocket was built to run on the Liverpool and Manchester Railway, the worlds first inter-city passenger railway line. In 1829, Rocket won the Rainhill Trials, which was a competition to decide on the best mode of transport for the railway.

Rocket was the only locomotive to successfully complete the trials, averaging 12 mph and achieving a top speed of 30 mph.

Designed by Robert Stephenson, Rockets win proved once and for all that locomotives were better at pulling trains along the Liverpool and Manchester Railway, rather than stationary winding engines.
