Nope. After 1915 (or somewhere in the era) the locomotives got too big for a human to keep up with, so they installed a stoker. [Here’s an illustration of one](http://trainperson99.home.comcast.net/~trainperson99/_images/_pictures/stoker-642.jpg) That being said, since you’re from Texas, many of the locomotives that ran down

She was fully repaired and is now housed at the Discovery Museum (indoors, no longer floating) in Newcastle if anyone is interested, although the turbine engine itself is in the Science Museum in London.
I saw this a couple months ago mid restoration. Looks like they got a lot of stuff done in a short period of time!
Jay leno has some great videos that give a good understanding on the different types of steams cars and what it was like to own them.

It must be some sort of refractive coating, mainly to prevent heat from escaping between the tubes which are most likely radiative.
Found a video – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hZrJZ-fMSKI From what I can tell, I think it’s misquoted as being 7 1/5 gauge and is probably 5 1/4 (1″ to the foot scale) since in the video it’s running on the smaller of the dual gauge track, and
After a bit of Google-fu, this dredge appears to be the “Perseverance”, and was used to dredge the Basingstoke Canal from 1975 to 1993 in order to allow it to reopen. She is currently displayed at the [National Waterways Museum](https://canalrivertrust.org.uk/national-waterways-museum) in Ellesmere Port, and
It used to be that industries and institutions had their own co-generation plants for heating and electricity. This practice was pretty much destroyed thanks to the efforts of energy companies. Now in the days of emission worries there are voices saying we should come
Except that the majority of steam engines were solid fuel burning. Actually I have elaborated on this topic before once, so let me just copy and paste my reasoning: >The problem with steam locomotives was not that they are somehow inherently flawed. With the
Blade thickness and skew are head pressure dependant aside from that it’s hard to get a sense of scale seeing as the gauges could be anywhere between 1″ to 12″+. That being said I still don’t see power figures for it, perhaps it’s mobile
That’s just heading down Pershing St in York PA. Believe it or not, the track that’s on was actually one of the Pennsylvania’s main lines. Well, kinda. It linked Harrisburg and Baltimore directly. My favorite part though, is the cutout on the corner of
>Cutaway of triple expansion compound steam engine, originally installed on the Austrian torpedo boat Weihe. Built by Eibinger Schichau-Werft 1888, power 660 kW, ship’s speed 17.5-22 kt at 280-370 rpm. https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:TMW_677_-_Triple_expansion_compound_steam_engine.jpg
I wouldn’t quite say never. She was restored in the 80s but only ran about 50 times as people would travel from all over the world to see her, and the NRM didn’t want to disappoint. She ran on the mainline at that time
That’s A) not a bicycle, as it has more than two wheels, and B) a motorcycle, by most definitions, as it’s powered, and C) a tricycle, if you want to be pedantic.
Yup he’s wrong, it’s a 6-4-4-6 duplex drive so only 8 total drivers. Yes it had wheel slip problems because of weight distribution problems, but hammer blow not so much. I can’t find any reports of the s1 having any problems with Hammer blow,
While she isn’t retired, she is currently out of service due to some major boiler issues caused by a lack of proper maintenance by the current administration in the UP steam shops. At the same time, many people who worked on the steam locomotives
Wow, that’s awesome! Why did they get replaced in the end, if they made it as far as 2002?
I am a mechanical engineer in training, and I was surprised that we actually got to not only learn something about those machines, but to meet some likeminded people within the faculty.
Nice! That engine in the top left is absolutely gorgeous. The green one in the middle on the right is a Stuart 10V. I had one until recently. I regret selling it! Where was this taken?
Oh nice, vintage electromechanical stuff. I’ve also figured out where it was reloacated to post-modernization: Engineer’s side running board just above the crosshead. Bonus points for a clean, head-on shot of one of the PRR’s name plates for passenger trains…this one’s not mounted in
Sorry for the delay. The depot where it is organized is dying a painful, agonizing death. Till about last year they kept an engine on commuter trains, not anymore, as the local government doesn’t want to pay for such a special service. Their number
3750 is in need of some TLC herself right now, she’s been out in the weather a lot lately playing gatekeeper… We should be glad we have 2, actually. Most surviving PRR steam classes only got 1 preserved example (the H8/9/10 being a psuedo-exception–the
Many steam locomotives have air tanks for the brake, a standard thing in the US and continental Europe. The question is why would they be placed on the firebox. But I guess it was just due to the lack of space elsewhere. My other
Uh, OP, that turbine quite clearly says “TERRY” on it. I know you simply copied the Wikipedia file name, which means the original uploader has some explaining to do. Terry is a fairly well-known brand name, used in many safety-related turbopumps in the nuclear
