Do not forget Robert Davidson who in 1837 built a battery powered electric loco called the Galvani.

From Aberdeen he actually lived long enough to see the works of Siemans and others.

Interestingly he used an early form of reluctance motor, a type now coming into its own as solid state rather than mechanical switching is possible.
