Abstract

El objetivo de este trabajo es el de analizar si existían elementos objetivos, de carácter tecnológico o infraestructural, que impidieran un temprano nacimiento de la industria de construcción de material ferroviario y, específicamente, de locomotoras de vapor. Para ello se hace un repaso a lo acontecido en otros países de la Europa occidental y Estados Unidos para conocer en que condiciones surgió esta actividad. A continuación se efectúa una reconstrucción del parque de locomotoras de las mayores compañías ferroviarias españoles, con el objeto de conocer su demanda y la procedencia de las locomotoras adquiridas. Seguidamente se reflexiona sobre las condiciones de la industria española en la segunda mitad del siglo XIX al objeto de establecer comparaciones con otros países que nos indiquen si las diferencias eran o no especialmente sustanciales. Por último se estudia, sintéticamente, la aparición del sector en España y su posterior desarrollo, lo que permite observar las similitudes y divergencias con los países de nuestro entorno .
