SIEMENS ELECTRIC TRAIN 1879

May 31, 1879 a little train made by Siemens runs without horse - or steampower. On the 300 meters (1000 feet) long cicular track at the berlin trade fair a little locomotive with an electric motor pulls the heavily loaded waggons with a speed of 7 km/h (4.4 mph). Only 25 years later an electric powered train head reached a speed of 200 km/h (125 mph). It is regarded as the first practically working electric train. (AP Photo/Siemens HO)
