Standardization of American Rail Gauge. George Stephenson, who built the first practical steam locomotive in England, laid his rails based on the width of coal wagons.

Laying the rails five feet apart and accounting for two inch wheels and a bit of leeway, the resulting space between the rails, or the rail gauge, was four feet eight and a half inches.

Stephenson used that gauge in. According to historian Mike Del Vecchio's book, "Railroads Across America," the very first railroad-like operation was opened in England during which used wooden rails, with wooden cross-ties (or "sleepers") for lateral support, to haul coal.
