Google doodle for 240th Birthday of Richard Trevithick

Yet another fun Doodle from google.

Richard Trevithick 240th birthday is the highlight for today…

Trevithick was the guy that fine tuned the steam engine creating the “high pressure” version.  Richard Trevithick was not the inventor of the steam engine but his high pressure system allows a engine to be put on wheels and a frame. Trevithick created the first transportable powered engine, a steam train with power!

Its a great read about him here

    Richard Trevithick now attempted
    to produce a much larger steam road locomotive and on Christmas Eve,
    1801, it used it to take seven friends on a short journey. The
    locomotive’s principle features were a cylindrical horizontal boiler and
    a single horizontal cylinder let into it. The piston, propelled back
    and forth in the cylinder by pressure of steam, was linked by piston rod
    and connecting rod to a crankshaft bearing a large flywheel.Trevithick’s locomotive became known as the Puffing Devil but it could
    only go on short journeys as he was unable to find a way of keeping up
    the steam for any length of time.

Trevithick created the front transportable supercharged engine, a clean prepare with index.
