On Dec. 13, 1850, the first steam engine, Tennessee No. 1, ordered by the Nashville & Chattanooga Railroad, arrived on the steamboat "Beauty" from Cincinnati. The one-mile trip on improvised tracks from the wharf to the S. Cherry St. crossing required 4 days by mule power. A one mile trial run was made from this point on Dec. 27, 1850.
