    The first "railroads" were actually "Rutway's" found in the times of the Greek and Roman Empires.

    Early in the 16th century the precursor to the modern railroad was found in Germany for the mines there.

    When Richard Trevithick build the first "Steam locomotive" the railroad was already in place being worked by horses.

    Here is the problem- if it runs on a railroad it is called a train! But the first thing constructed has to be the road- other wise there is no way for it to be said to be  a train.
