George Stephenson (9 June 1781 12 August 1848) was an English mechanical engineer who designed a famous and historically important steam-powered locomotive named Rocket and is known as the 'Father of British Steam Railways'. The Victorians considered him a great example of diligent application and thirst for improvement, with self-help advocate Samuel Smiles particularly praising his achievements. His rail gauge of 4 ft 8½ in (1435 mm), originally called 'Stephenson gauge', has become the standard gauge for the majority of the world's railways.
