In 1829 Robert Stephenson entered his steam locomotive, called the Rocket, in a competition called the Rainhill Trials. It was to be held east of Liverpool and the winner would receive £500. There were 10 other locomotives entered in the race and Stephenson had to transport his engine and equipment there, by horse and cart, from Newcastle. This is a folk song about this famous race.
