  Slate Transport   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-03)
Richard Pennant took advantage of the fact that the slate trade was slow, and that many of his quarrymen had been involved in the Caernarfon Riots to construct a tramway from the quarry to Porth Penrhyn.
It was followed by the Dinorwig tramway in 1824, and the Nantlle tramway in 1828.
The Padarn tramway for Dinorwig Quarry was completed in 1843, and the railways to Porth Penrhyn and Y Felinheli were completed by 1852.  Of course, with the extension of the national rail network the tonnage of slates carried on the railways increased greatly.

 Horse Trams on Rail and Road
The rails were of a 'T' section laid level with the road surface on longitudinal wooden sleepers, with the web of the rail recessed into the timber.
The cars were fitted with a fifth wheel which had a centre flange and which would engage with the grooved rail and thus steer the car keeping the running wheels on the rails.
The patent also shows an alternative method of operation whereby the guide wheel was held to the rail by its own weight and was connected to a foot pedal by a chain instead of levers, the driver pressing the pedal to raise the guide wheel which could then be latched in the up position.

Gerstner advocated a horse railway from Linz to Joachimsmuhle, but left the project in the hands of his son, who in September, 1824, was granted by the Emperor Franz I the exclusive right of building a wood and iron road between Mauthausen, on the Danube, and Budweis (now called Ceske-Budejovice).

 Toward Green Mobility: the evolution of transport - Jesse Ausubel, Cesare Marchetti, Perrin Meyer
The picture is slow penetration of new technologies of transport adding speed in the course of substituting for the old ones in terms of time allocation.
All the history of transport reduces to the fundamentally simple principle: produce speed technically and economically so that it can be squeezed into the travel money budget.
The history of transport technology can be seen as a striving to bring extra speed to the progressively expanding level of income.

 Automobile city? Transport and the making of C20th Los Angeles - Ralph Harrington
What brought about the establishment of urban rail transport on a large scale was the inward immigration of the 1880s and the associated property boom.
