This Date in Railroad History


September 27, 1835
Phineas Davis was killed when his locomotive York derailed due to defective track. Davis was a well-known clockmaker and inventor who designed and built the first practical American coal-burning railroad locomotive, the York, in 1831. In 1832 he constructed the Atlantic, which employed a vertical firetube boiler that was far more commercially successful than the York. This was the Atlantic, which employed a vertical firetube boiler. Built at a cost of $4,500, Atlantic weighed 6½ tons and had two vertical cylinders. Davis’s 0-4-0 design proved successful, and 20 such locomotives were constructed at the B&O's Mount Clare Shops. Some operated for more than 60 years, and were finally retired in the 1890s. One was prominently exhibited at the New York World’s Fair in 1939.
