This is a picture of a train. Its purpose was to transport freight and people. It is made of steel. The time period it was used was from 1872 to the present day, though the Prince Edward Island Railway stopped running in the 1980s.
You could buy a train today (if you had enough money). They have changed in speed, material, length and power. The conductor of the train operates it. It was very popular in the 19th century, and still is.
Back in the 1870's, the train was the most common form of transportation besides walking. It had a speed of 20-50 miles per hour (Mph). Today trains can reach a speed of 220 Mph. The train still fits in to daily life; it has gotten faster, with more cargo area. It's still used for the same purpose... to transport people and goods.
