The oldest known, man/animal-hauled railways date back to the 6th century BC in Corinth , Greece . Rail transport then commenced in mid 16th century in Germany in form of horse-powered funiculars and wagonways . Modern rail transport commenced with the British development of the steam locomotives in the early 19th century. Thus the railway system in Great Britain is the oldest in the world. Built by George Stephenson and his son Robert 's company Robert Stephenson and Company , the Locomotion No. 1 is the first steam locomotive to carry passengers on a public rail line, the Stockton and Darlington Railway in 1825. George also built the first public inter-city railway line in the world to use only the steam locomotives all the time, the Liverpool and Manchester Railway which opened in 1830 . With steam engines, one could construct mainline railways, which were a key component of the Industrial Revolution . Also, railways reduced the costs of shipping , and allowed for fewer lost goods, compared with water transport, which faced occasional sinking of ships. The change from canals to railways allowed for "national markets" in which prices varied very little from city to city. The invention and development of the railway in the United Kingdom was one of the most important technological inventions of the 19th century. The world's first underground railway, the Metropolitan Railway (part of the London Underground ), opened in 1863.
