The Stephenson Railway Legacy

From poverty to immense wealth, from humble beginnings to international celebrity, George and Robert Stephenson’s was an extraordinary joint career. Together they overshadow all other engineers, with the possible exception of Robert's friend Isambard Kingdom Brunel, for one vital reason: they were winners. For them it was not enough to follow the progress made by others. They had to be the best. Colossal in confidence, ability, energy and ambition, George Stephenson was also a man of huge rages and jealousies, determined to create his own legend. Brought up from infancy by his father, Robert was a very different person. Driven by the need to be the super-successful son his father wanted, he struggled with self-distrust and morbid depression. More than once his career and reputation teetered on the edge of disaster. But by being flawed, he emerges as a far more appealing and sympathetic figure than the conventional picture of the 'eminent engineer.' David Ross’s new biography of George and Robert Stephenson sheds new light on these two giants of British engineering.

Rocket is perhaps one of the best-known railway locomotives in history. Entered by George and Robert Stephenson and Henry Booth for the Rainhill Trials of October 1829, Rocket was the outright victor and paved the way for the dominance of the steam railway as the major means of communication for the next hundred years or more. But Rocket was not ‘the first’ locomotive – that honor goes to the work of Cornishman Richard Trevithick, while the Middleton Railway saw the first commercial use of steam locomotives in 1812. This book sets out to chart the development of the steam locomotive from its birth with Richard Trevithick up to the momentous year of 1829, showing just how far the locomotive had come in a quarter of century, to go on to be the world-changing invention it became.
