The first steam train was built in England in 1804. It took some time for trains to become popular in the 19th century. In the beginning, people were worried about becoming unconscious or not being able to breathe on the trains because of the speed. But traveling by train was very affordable. By the 1850s, passengers were traveling at speeds of 80 km per hour or more.
