The Steam Locomotive: An Engineering History

Product Description
Books on railway history invariably start with the Stephenson’s or with Richard Trevithick’s locomotive of 1804., but the story begins much earlier with the development of steam engines for pumping out deep mines. Ken Gibbs, a retired engineer who served his apprenticeship in the Swindon Works of British Railways, takes a more practical approach to railway history, using its engineering developments to tell the story of the railways. From the first ideas to the deve… More >>

Built between 1910 and 1915, the KVR took BC’s fruit industry to world markets until it closed in 1989.

Can you proofread my history essay for spellings?

Economical impact (negative)
Aswell as the good impact unfortunatley there is the negative impact. In my point of view the worst of them all was the pollution in the air. But I think it was all worth it. Another bad point was as well as people getting hired a lot also got fired. These companies became backrupt as nobody needed the turnpike trust to build the roads anymore as they used the trains more than roads. A few more companies who went out of buisness are:
?Canals
?Horse and Carriage
Tax’s also went up. Working conditions god worse and worse pay as more people thought I can pay these people less as they deperate for a job.

Social impact (positive)
This was used a lot and it improved a lot of things for the better. Thanks to the trains we got first class post because They could pile it on a train and send it out to the village, therefore it will get ther quicker. So people paid more to get there post delieverd on near enough the same day. They could also take daily newspapers from London and distribute them between the UK. As they could distribute papers throught the country people started reading them which gave them an education this is linked to politics and that how it started all out
Tourism
The train also had a massive impactof traveling. As it is a faster way to travel from A to B. This table I have show you shows how long it takes to get from London to the specified town. In 1836 they used horse and carriage and 1850 is steam train. Just look and compare the amazing difference.

In This essay I will be talking about the impact of the railway during the industrial revolution. This will be the 18-19th centuary. The topics I will be covering are the social and economic impact, along with both views of the topic (positive and negative.) These will all be covered in my essay.
Economic impact (positive)
Lots of things came from the industrial revolution positive and negative im going to write about them both, first the positive. Econimical means money, jobs and trade. Some of the things that happened in the industrial revolution were:
?Trade got faster
?More people were employed
?People visited the world more
Trade
Lots peope got to try new foods, as the trains could transport the foods without them going off. Some of the new foods they could try was:
?Milk
?Vegtable
?Bread
?Fish
As a result of this we got FISH & CHIPS! (a good old english dish.)
Jobs & Employment
Loads of people benefited from this period of time. Train track layers, for example they would of needed to learn new skills to lay tracks. Not just for trains but for the mine carts along the mines. This is how buisness men would make there millions
