Benz Motor Car of 1888

The Benz Patent-Motorwagen Number 3 of 1888 - probably the first petrol car brought into England. A three-wheeled vehicle with a horizontal single cylinder motor. This vehicle was used by Bertha Benz for the first long distance journey by automobile (more than 106 km or sixty miles). Without her husband's prior knowledge, she drove 106km to visit her Mother, stopping at Pharmacies en route for fuel and in turn inventing brake pad lining to solve the tricky situation of braking on hills!! Date: 1888

The Micheline - a train on pneumatic tyres

The Micheline - the first train on pneumatic tyres. In commercial use since 1931 - the birth of the Michelin Tyre. This example was run on the L.M.S. Line (Bletchley to Oxford) in 1932. Michelines offered unprecedented ride smoothness, but they soon proved to be problematic because the low load that the wheels could bear limited railcar sizes and demanded a high number of tyres (up to 20) per car. Furthermore, they were subject to flat tyres, unlike cars with steel wheels. The trains of the Paris metro (RATP) still run with rubber tyres
