George Francis Train
Quote off wikipedia
"In 1860 he went to England to found horse tramway companies in Birkenhead and London, where he soon met opposition. He was also involved in the construction of a short-lived horse tramway in Cork, Ireland. Although his trams were popular with passengers, his designs had rails that stood above the road surface and obstructed other traffic. In 1861 Train was arrested and tried for "breaking and injuring" a London street. He tried again with the Darlington Street Railroad Company in 1862, but it was short-lived and closed in 1865"
