    "A steam locomotive is like a rolling lit bomb. You have pounds per square inch of pressure in the boiler, and if it goes up, the explosion can send the locomotive yards down the : Michael Kernan. The largest maker of heavy machinery in Gilded Age America and an important global exporter, the Baldwin Locomotive Works of Philadelphia achieved renown as one of the nation's most successful and important firms. Relying on gifted designers and skilled craftsmen, Baldwin built thousands of standard and custom steam locomotives, ranging from narrow gauge industrial engines to huge mallet 5/5(1).   Back in the '80s Journalist John Wall wrote an assignment on the Loewy-designed S-1 steam locomotive, which then evolved into a lifelong fascination with the designer's work. Wall's " Streamliner: Raymond Loewy and Image-making in the Age of American Industrial Design," is pages and available for $

“No other steam locomotive built after World War I had such a remarkable, lasting, and beneficial effect upon the American scene,” historian David P. Morgan wrote in his book, "Steam's Finest Hour," “‘Modern’ no longer meant the addition of another driving axle and more adhesive weight; modern meant horsepower – i.e., power at speed.”.

This train toured the U.S. throughout and introduced a whole generation to big steam railway power. was the first, large, "modern" steam locomotive restored for service in the U.S., and it lead the way for later restorations of other mainline steam locomotives in the 's and 's.

Blenkinsopp, who obtained a patent for a self propelling steam engine, Fig. 2, worked by a cog wheel engaging a rack rail, a practice now common on mountain railways.

Its coverage of the American Steam Locomotive in the 20th century is detailed and comprehensive. The book is aimed primarily at people who are seeking to understand the steam locomotive. It is described how scientific, engineering and economic factors influenced the development of the steam locomotive.

The book is well written and illustrated.5/5(11). A Garratt (often referred to as a Beyer Garratt) is a type of steam locomotive that is articulated into three parts. Its boiler is mounted on the centre frame, and two steam engine units are mounted on separate frames, one on each end of the boiler.

Articulation permits larger locomotives to negotiate curves and lighter rails that might restrict large rigid-framed locomotives. LBSC were the initials of Britain's London, Brighton & South Coast Railway.

LBSC was also the pseudonym of one of the most famous and idiosyncratic of all miniature-steam-locomotive designers. LBSC -- Curly, to his friends -- was born (most likely) in and christened Lillian Lawrence.

Richard Trevithick (–) was a English engineer who made fundamental developments regarding the steam locomotive. Although Trevithick had a brilliant mind for engineering he was only just literate, and also had failure after failure when it came to the businesses he set-up.

Trevithick is best known for his invention of the high-pressure steam engine just prior toin At the. In his book 'The Red Devil and Other Tales from the Age of Steam' David Wardale argues that steam did not develop because steam engineers sat on their laurels believing what they had was good enough.

When diesels came along they were better than most existing steam designs; it was already too late for steam to catch up and not surprisingly.

The Brown studies suggesting that steam locomotive economics were more favorable than generally understood assigns a value that steam, on average, used 6 times the BTUs of Diesel locomotives.

Wardale gives some figures suggesting that the fuel consumption of steam. Norfolk & Western is a "Class J" steam locomotive and perhaps the most advanced such Northern ever built (generally the design was known as Northerns but the N&W built their own and classed them as Js).The N&W began building its s around the start of World War II in and would ultimately come to own fourteen such designs, which were built exclusively for passenger.

This is claimed in Wardale's "Red Devil and other Tales of the Age of Steam" account of the operation of the On the other hand, some Web sources suggest that some of that class of locomotive never had a feedwater heater but instead had an exhaust-steam injector, a poor-man's feedwater heater in that it provides some degree of energy and.

Principles of Locomotive Design: Steam locomotives operate by converting heat energy into mechanical energy. This requires a heat source, a boiler to generate steam and cylinders converting the thermal energy contained in steam to mechanical energy, which can be used to perform work.

Steam is technically defined as being elastic aeriform fluid. As Thomas Dixon, Jr. notes in his book, "Norfolk & Western Steam: The Last 30 Years," the N&W did not give names to its steam classes (such as Northern, Pacific, Mountain, etc.).

Instead, it simply referred to them by their class letter; J, Z, A, Y, etc. The 's were given Class J and built by the master steam builders at N&W's Roanoke, Virginia shops.
