Dr Church’s 3-wheeled steam coach was completed in 1833 by Dr Church of Birmingham. (UK). The vehicle ran daily backwards and forwards from Birmingham to London  at an average speed of 14 mph.  The steam coach was able to carry 44 passengers housing 22 inside and 22 outside.  The wheels of the steam coach were solid and were all in a single line, unlike 3-wheeler configurations of modern 3-wheelers. Due to the width of the wheels and the weight of the vehicle, the coach  flattened the ground as it drove over it.  Dr Church’s steam coach proved to be most successful until a new law dictated that steam vehicles had to be limited to just 3 mph.
