Model steam locomotive, Sans Pareil, early 19th century, attributed to Timothy Hackworth but which may have been built by Trevithick or Hackworth.

Model steam locomotive, Sans Pareil, early 19th century. This model has multiple cylinders and is a prototype for all the fossil-fuel powered transport that followed. It might have been built by either of the famous early locomotive pioneers Timothy Hackworth or Richard Trevithick, but maybe even by clockmaker William West, who is known to have built models for Trevithick.
