The Locomotive Adler
The Adler was the first locomotive to run in Germany and was built by the Robert Stephenson & Co. locomotive factory in Newcastle upon Tyne (England).
The shipment of the dismantled locomotive from England to Nuremberg by ship and mule took almost eight weeks. It was reassembled in Wilhelm Späth’s Mechanical Workshop in Nuremberg.
The first official railway journey under steam in Germany was undertaken with the Adler between Nuremberg and Fürth on 7 December 1835. The engine driver hired was an experienced Englishman, William Wilson, who earned more as a specialist than the Director of the Ludwigsbahn-Gesellschaft. The original locomotive was sold in 1857, as it no longer satisfied the technical requirements, and has not been heard of since.
