The steam engine was a huge innovation in train technology because it was the first time that humans could use fuel instead of wind, water, or muscle (horse) power to move freight. Plus, fuel can be transported, so steam engines could operate anywhere there was track. More so, steam engines were continually improved upon and became more and more efficient as time went on. In fact, the steam engine kicked off the industrial revolution and not only innovated the railroad industry, but changed the entire world. Make your model train cars part of history with a high-quality steam engine from All About Toy Trains.
