'The 15.2 kilometre Trevithick Trail commemorates the first journey by a steam locomotive to pull a load on rails in 1804, the precursor of the Railway Age which changed the world in the 19th century ... Two years after the completion of its construction in 1802, the Cornishman Richard Trevithick ran a steam locomotive along its length, an event that was to establish a landmark in the history of railway development and forever link the tramroad with the name of the locomotive's constructor.'
