where to find the first passenger station of the world?

Manchester was one of the very first industrial cities and a place of unrestrained capitalism. It's here that the first ever passenger railway service was offered – in the world’s oldest existing station. The historical buildings built in 1830 now house the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester. The largest known collection of working steam engines and other exhibits make it one of the largest and most renowned science and industry museums on the planet.
