Adler Steam Locomotive

Designed by George and Robert Stephenson, the Adler was a British-made German steam locomotive, which entered service in 1835, running on standard gauge tracks, from Nurumberg to Früh and back, for the Bavarian Ludwig Railway. The firebox used coke to produce steam. It had two cylinders and reached the top speed of 65 km per hour.
