1813 – Steam Carriage with Legs and Feet – Brunton (British)

Brunton's Traveller was constructed by the Butterley Company in Derbyshire in 1813 by William Brunton (1777–1851). Also known as the "Steam Horse" it had a pair of mechanical legs, with feet that gripped the rails at the rear of the engine to push it forwards at about three miles an hour.
