Johann-Andreas Schubert (1808 – 1870) was a German general engineer (Universalingenieur), designer and university lecturer. On 8 April 1839, at the opening of the first German long-distance railway between Leipzig and Dresden, Schubert drove the Saxonia, the first effective, working, steam locomotive in Germany, which he had designed. In 1845, Scubert designed the The Göltzsch Viaduct in Germany, the largest brick-built bridge in the world.
