HistoricTrain Of Bosnia and Herzegovina (Ciro)
Trains have been a popular form of transport since the 19th century. When the first steam train was built in 1804, people were worried that the speed would make rail passengers unable to breathe or that they would be shaken unconscious by the vibrations. But by the 1850s, passengers were travelling at previously unthinkable speeds of 80kph (50mph) or more. Rail travel was cheap, and people who had never been on a journey before could now afford to make trips by train. Cities that had once seemed far apart suddenly felt much closer together, because people and goods could move between them in hours rather than days. In some places, new towns sprang up beside the tracks.
