It came from from Pennsylvania U.S.A. It was then moved to the Hilcrest Coal mines in B.C. Canada before ending up at the some mineral mines in saskatchewan, and fimally at the museum in Moose Jaw, Sk.

It’s not a holocaust memorial and [it was erected 5 years ago](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7gqs1vyg2F0). The train used in the installation is [Ty2-1035](http://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ty2/Ty42)
It was a lovely morning on the Isle of Sodor. The engines were just waking up and waiting to ride the turntable out of the roundhouse. Percy, as usual, was hogging it.
The wheels in front are there to steer the engine into the curves, the wheels in back distribute the weight more evenly. All this is meant to provide optimal traction for the 6 drive wheels in the middle, 3 on each side. I don’t
I’ve said it here before, but if you haven’t seen Buster Keeton’s “The General”, see it now. It’s hilarious, well-filmed, on Netflix, and has a lot of great train footage. What I found particularly interesting was how poorly-laid the track was. Obviously, they were
Ah yeah, cheers, that looks like a good fit. I notice the tender is somewhat different, and the L vs. R three-quarter profile throws up some differences – for instance the small valve-like object to the right (as you look from the cab) of
When the picture was taken I had a 2-liter boiler made out of an oxygen tank suspended over a gas burner. I had since utilized the tank as a water drum and built a larger 4.5 liter boiler, of a water tube type with
Watching these things steer is just painful. At least on the ones that I’ve seen, they don’t have the ability to stop either track. To turn, an assistant puts wedges under one side to cause the machine to slowly turn in that direction.
Hi, This was at the Northeast yards…off University, south of Columbia Heights. She ran excursions the following weekend, and I staked out a spot to watch her rumble by. Very cool. Got some pics I could post if you’re interested.
Combustion Engineering built the first nuclear sub reactors and builds lots of steam stuff for both conventional and nuke power plants
Rods down and all….hnnng. Fun thing with 475 (and the other surviving Mollies) is the deck-less cab: the firebox comes back to the tender deck, making for a slightly cramped ride for the crew. Oh, and the cab interior is practically identical to the
Yes, that’s correct. They do maintain a close relationship though, as the museum houses former Strasburg locomotives, Strasburg restores some equipment for them, and the Strasbrug tracks are the only way for the museum to receive larger or heavier pieces of equipment. You can
Oscillating engine built in 1853 by J. & A. Blyth of London for the Austrian paddle steamer Orsova Steam engine with oscillating cylinders after the design by Joseph Maudslay, built in 1853 by J.&A. Blyth, London. Installed in the Austrian side-paddle tugboat Orsova. Operating
I do. I’m in data analysis, but I like to keep myself as well-informed on our products as possible. We build smaller turbines and very large centrifugal compressors. Most of our turbines are single-flow path, but we have split unit compressors that route gas
You can easily see three low-pressure steam turbine casings, the main generator, then the exciter for the generator electromagnet. There should be a high-pressure turbine casing to the left of the low pressure sections. The other unit’s low-pressure steam lines are visible in the
Whew, steam gore. Cool picture! One quibble; despite the website name, this isn’t a traction engine. Judging by the equally-sized, non-treaded wheels, and lack of drive or steering gear, this is an engine that would be pulled from place to place and set up
Very nice, I love how simple and elegant Merryweathers were, highly functional too! Also, is that some kind of Marshal vertical boiler tandem roller in the background?
Here: http://prestonservices.co.uk/category/miniatures/miniature-traction-engines-all/ Now that you are horrified by the prices, let me inform you that you can often find them on ebay and other places for a lot (many times…) cheaper. And if you bought an old one, or salvaged one (some people have
Interesting-looks like 2 gauge glasses, side by side, no water column, and no tri-cocks? Are they hot water boilers? Also: What’s the green thing hanging between the (front) doors?
Most of the houses in cities the US were heated with coal until after World War Two. We did eventually move to a house with gas heat but none of my friends parents had coal furnaces when I was a child. Coal furnaces were
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.
