Brunel Was Right

About the Coal Cart Gauge

«Looking to the speeds

which I contemplated

would be adopted on railways

and the masses to be moved

it seemed to me

that the whole machine

was too small

for the work to be done,

and that it required

that the parts

should be on a scale

more commensurate

with the mass

and the velocity

to be obtained.»
