He didn't. The steam engine was invented by James Watt in 1712. Trevithick developed an improved high pressure steam engine in 1800. He then invented the steam locomotive in 1803 and actually built a passenger railway in London in 1812. Thomas Newcomen gave his name to atmospheric steam engines, which he invented. The first was installed in 1712 close to Dudley Castle in the Black Country. He had to share his success with Thomas Savery, who had previously taken out a general patent covering all the possible means of pumping water by ateam power.
