Stephenson’s Rocket is an early steam locomotive with a 0-2-2 wheel arrangement. This he built for the Rainhill Trials of the Liverpool and Manchester Railway (L&MR) in October 1829, which he won.
Rocket was designed and built by Robert Stephenson in his 1829 year and was built at his company Fourth Street Works in Newcastle upon Tyne.
Rocket was by no means the first steam locomotive, but it was the first to combine several technological innovations to produce one of the most advanced locomotives of its time. It is the most famous example of the evolving Stevenson locomotive design, and became the template for most steam engines over the next 150 years.
