Built by George Stephenson and his son Robert's company Robert Stephenson and Company, the Locomotion No.Starting during the 1940s, the non-electrified railways in most countries had their steam locomotives replaced by diesel-electric locomotives, with the process being almost complete by 2000s.During the 1960s, electrified high-speed railway systems were introduced in Japan and later in some other countries.Rail transport is a means of transferring of passengers and goods on wheeled vehicles running on rails, also known as tracks.It is also commonly referred to as train transport.Following decline after World War II due to competition from cars, rail transport has had a revival in recent decades due to road congestion and rising fuel prices, as well as governments investing in rail as a means of reducing CO The history of rail transport began in the 6th century BC in Ancient Greece.
