On July 3, 2013, the Marshall Islands Postal Service issues ten new stamps featuring Legendary British Steam Locomotives. In the early 19th century, English engineer George Stephenson and hi s son Robert designed the first commercially successful steam locomo tive, comprised of a system of horizontal cylinders mounted beneath a multi-tubular boiler, with a firebox in the rear and followed by a tender car carrying water and fuel supplies. Soon, the steam locomo tive began to revolutionize the world's developing railway systems. In 1930, the Liverpool and Manchester Railway designed by the elder Stephenson, became the first full-time railway service to rely entir ely on steam locomotion, marking the beginning of the great Railway Era. Lasting until World War I, this period saw railroads built acro ss every continent and every nation on Earth, connecting vast areas of the world in a way few had ever imagined.
