Winterthur and steam power

It is very likely that Winterthur would never have grown to today's size without steam power. Just as steam power decisively shaped and promoted the 1st industrial revolution in England, steam power also had a decisive influence on the development of Winterthur from 1855 onwards. Not only the use of steam power in general by the two large production facilities for steam engines, Sulzer and SLM, but also by the railroad, which from 1855 as a fast means of logistics enabled the procurement of raw materials and continental trading.
