Title: Name That Locomotive Game
Post by: Guilford Guy on February 19, 2007, 11:48:57 PM
Here are the rules
1. One Contest May Run at a Time. Once a contest is finished anyone may post a picture.
2. Any Gauge and Country are Welcome.
3. Please only use photo's that are of public domain. When in doubt just post a link.
4. If a locomotive has not been named after 24 hours of its posting I will ask if the poster could please "Spill the Beans" so we may be able to move on. However, if there are many legitimate guesses it will stay until solved.
5. Have Fun!
I will start us off

Cool! It's a Speed Merchant! I haven't seen a pic of one of these in years. I don't remember it's original name and builder clearly, but I think it's classified as Fairbanks-Morse P-12-42.

Here are the rules
1. Only the winner of the previous contest may post the next picture. Any picture posted while a contest is still open will be flagged and removed by a higher up.
2. You must wait for conformation that you have won before you post a picture.
3. Any Gauge and Country are Welcome.
4. Have Fun!

I would also recommend that you stick to posting public domain photos or photos that you have the right to use, there were several copyrighted photos that appeared in that other thread, without permission I'm guessing, which could cause problems.
if in doubt, post a link to the photo, instead.

Yes, it is British Railways and no it's not ex Great Western Railway.

We need to know class and railway of origin and location in the UK.  General will do, specific if you're really good.

It's one of a series of photos I took during the summer of 1965.

Steve,
I posted the info on the articulated engine for you..in the old thread, a few days ago.
it was actually a 2-8-8-2, and it was Missouri Pacific #4000

I have no idea why the old thread got yanked..
it wasnt that bad, from what I saw..
a bit of immaturity, but no big deal IMO.. that happens in lots of threads.

Post by: Steve Stockham on February 20, 2007, 11:49:58 AM
Hey, thanks Scot! I figured that you or one of the others would have the info! :) As far as the immaturity goes, it's a friendly game and that's all! I don't understand why people feel that they have to play power games? "Only the person that correctly identifies the locomotive in question can post a new one?!!" Fine. Play your petty little power games. (If it keeps you interested then I guess it's worth something.)
  Before everybody gets their "knickers in a knot," I DO understand the reasons for setting some ground rules so that everybody can fully enjoy and participate. This was especially true of the previous thread! I noticed that, when a picture was posted that somebody didn't have a clue about, people would just ignore it and post a new picture and pretend that the first didn't happen with the result being rather chaotic!
  It's the attitude of "I made this thread so I am the moderator of this thread" (or some such drivel to that effect...) that just irritates the heck out of me! There is ONE opinion that matters and only ONE person who imposes rules and that is Johann!
  While this thread is informative and entertaining, it's also just a game!! We're not a bunch of seven year olds out on the playground and we should be able to agree (for the sake of the game) to abide by certain guidelines. Posting RULES that have been layed down by self appointed moderators rubs people the wrong way! Your goal is commendable but your method leaves much to be desired. Here endeth the sermon.

WE HAVE A WINNER!

Stephen is correct.

The loco is No. 33 "Bembridge", an ex LSWR - ex SR class O2 0-4-4T shown here shunting at Newport on the Isle of Wight during the last summer of steam operation.

More photos of this loco can be seen at: -

GG,
  It's not you, okay? I understand where you are coming from. This used to happen over on the Thomas threads on the old forum board. Some people just don't have the maturity to maintain a civil conversation. It's sad but true, especially as it seems to be intentional in this case. >:(
 
To our immature friend,
  So sorry, but you are mistaken (again!) as Stockham is phonetically close to Stockholm which is the capitol city in Sweden. (Perhaps you should spend less time trying to insult people on this forum and spend more time with your geographical studies. I believe you would find it beneficial.)

I did a bit of research (ain't research fun!) and I know it is fleet number E4301, a 2 foot 6 inch gauge Canadian Locomotive Works product from 1958. It was photographed at the Esteban Hernandez sugar mill.

If I'm right, I yield to anyone else who has a picture ready.

Are proposed, or as they say in Car & Driver "concept", locomotives allowed. I think a disclaimer stating the picture is a proposal.

nah..its totally GE..the most obvious GE feature is that "U-boat flare" at the end of the long hood..and besides that, it just has that overall GE look to it.
absolutely 100% no doubt its a GE, but exactly what model I dont know.

Im going to guess its a GE C30-7 in China, although its probably some funky variant model of the C30-7..probably built in Erie, PA!

No. 3838 (4-6-6-4 Challenger) boasted an engine weight of 584,950 pounds. Her 255 pounds per square inch of boiler pressure drove 69-inch Boxpok disc drivers through 22x32-inch cylinders. She was next-to-last of of a class of 40 similar locomotives delivered to the Union Pacific by American Locomotive Company in 1936-37.

Yes, but MLW and CLC were two different Canadian builders. That's like a Danish modeler saying GE and EMD are the same.

Yes, 6 were "Cab" type and 15 were "Hood" type, and both types used the same model number "ML4000"

Some of the hood types also were operated in Brazil.

Here's one that had two railroads. The original owner and the last owner (ran into the early 20s). Anyone know one or both of the railroads?

Hi guys,

Sorry, I 'jumped in' instead of waiting 'my turn'. My apologies.

The steam locomotive I posted never was originally (or after it was sold) an NW steamer.

It was used by a US class one RR originally and sold to a 'branch/small' RR later.

I thought only SP and NW had 'Mastadons' ... until someone sent me this photo.

lanny nicolet (numbers, etc erased to make it more fun :-)

4-8-0 "mastadons" were quite common with the anthracite roads..
they were very heavy power of the 1890's..

I know LV, DL&W, D&H, BR&P and Erie also had them.

in fact, that loco has a very "BR&P look" about it,
so im going to guess it originally belonged to the BR&P, then the B&O.
(Buffalo Rochester & Pittsburg)
correct or no?

HIT!!
Clue was "belpaire boiler". Only PRR and GN used them the most!

CLASS G 12-WHEEL. Brooks and Rogers built about 105 of these 4-8-0 engines for the Great Northern and its predecessor lines between 1891 and 1900. The builder's photo of Montana Central engine No. 100, a G-5 was made in 1899, the year before it became No. 800 on GN's roster. Experiments with cylinder volumes varied the diameter from 19 to 25 1/4 inches, but all G class engines had 32-inch stroke. Weight varied between 78 and 106 tons in the five sub-classes. This was a simple engine, using inside steam admission, and had piston valves and Stephenson valve gear.

I yield to anyone who has a photo ready.

Hey, sorry guys, but this particular 'game' 'ain't' over yet ... nobody has correctly figured out what railroad owned this locomotive.

Good guesses and nice trys, but so far all of them are wrong!  :-)

Here's another hint ... it was the 'one and only' of this series (4-8-0) that this railroad owned before selling it to its 'second' and 'last' owner.

One more hint ... both 'guesses', though educated, are either too far East or too far West!

Wow! That photo is very much like the one I have! Except for a few minor differences, they could almost be twins (cab windows, top of tenders, etc ... all pretty minor differences).

I have to run a couple errands this morning. I'll post the answer with the original photo showing the RR's number and lettering and the history, as I received it, in a couple hours when I have a 'breather' from running around!

I can see only some minor differences. ICRR sold it to P&PURR who ran it, as I understand it into the 20s (Periora & Pekin Union RR ... a 'shortline' rr)

Title: Re: Name That Locomotive Game
Post by: Dr EMD on February 25, 2007, 01:45:42 PM
It's a NYNH&H Hudson, class I-5 (which I don't understand since the I-1 to I-4 were Pacifics)

Anyway, BLI is producing them in HO for this summer.
Overview
In 1937, New Haven received ten 4-6-4 locomotives built by Baldwin. These were the last steam power the road would purchase and they were certainly the most beautiful. They featured streamlined boilers that were gloss black with stainless steel stripes and trim (aluminum paint on the tenders.) They were powered by large 80" Boxpox drivers that were ideal for the speedy Shoreline passenger trains that serviced New Haven and Boston. Many of these routes originated in, or continued to, New York via the New Haven's electrified western end. These locomotives hauled some of the most recognizable extra fare trains in railroading including the Merchants Limited, Senator and Yankee Clipper.

Broadway Limited is building the most accurate, smooth-running, sound-equipped, brass-hybrid HO New Haven I-5 Hudson ever.

I guess if you are being really pedantic you could argue it was not a Mason as it was built by ALCO (Schenectady Works), but it is a Mason Fairlie or Mason Bogie type.

Mason acquired a licemce for the Fairlie articulated locomotives from Robert Fairlie and developed the Single Fairlie design into the locomotive we all know and love. Hence Mason Fairlie is the most accurate term, even if mason Bogie is the common term.

still wrong!  ;D

yes, it is currently a NS loco still in CR paint,
8 years after Conrail died.
Locos still in CR paint are getting rarer everyday, but still nothing unusual.

I will give you a hint:
the details of this loco are identical to its other 23 siblings from that particular SD70 order..
but it is still unique, there is something "one of a kind" about it.

That would explain why it's missing the two red lights on the nose that are normally found on the Conrail locos. Hard to believe that it's been eight years.  ???

Western Maryland #6.
1. the last Shay ever built. (1945)
2. the largest surviving Shay.

She is often referred to as "the largest shay ever built"..but this is untrue. The largest Shay (as built new) was s/n 2570, Kansas City Southern #900, built in 1913.

The heaviest Shay ever was a 4-truck Shay built by the Mower Lumber Co. modified from a 3-truck Shay. but it was not that large when built by Lima, it was modified later.

This particular flavor of ten-wheeler was unique to one railroad and one builder..when I first saw pics of these engines, I thought maybe they were originally 4-8-0's and had the front driver removed! that gap is quite odd..
but they were designed and built as 4-6-0's..

Scott,  a little late for this reply, but do you know what the #6 WM Shay was originally designed/made for?  Interesting to note most of the Shays built for West Virginia were built designed for timber!  Cass also has a very large Shay that is not operational and you can see it at the engine house.  It is the number 7.  It developed boiler problems and they needed an axle to fix number four a few years ago and never made another for replacement so they just part out number seven!  That's a good picture of #6 by the way, where did you locate that?  I'm building a layout of Cass and I am trying to model the exact Shays, not with the Cass name.  Stephen

I can't name the pictured 4-6-0 but the Tyco/Mantua "Dixie Belle" (not Bella) wasn't  a model of that loco or of a converted 4-8-0 with the front driver removed. It was of a Rogers 4-6-0 with a space between the second and third drivers, but no abnormal gap between the front truck and the first driver. See http://tycotrain.tripod.com/trainsets/id2.html (http://tycotrain.tripod.com/trainsets/id2.html)

The 4-6-0 has not been solved, so that is still the the current locomotive.

My guess in is built by Mason, owned by Leigh Vally Railroad. The following is not an idemtical locomotive, but has the same wheel spacing and is a Mason built 4-6-0 for the ieogh Valley.http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/rea_home/lv15p.jpg (http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/rea_home/lv15p.jpg)

Post by: Hamish K on March 28, 2007, 08:15:10 PM
I can't see the picture so I can't be sure - my guess would be the Beattie 2-4-0t well tank  class. These were originally introduced in 1862 for the London and South Western Railway and 3 survived in regular service on a branch line until about 1962. By then they were owned by British Railways.

Title: Re: Name That Locomotive Game
Post by: Hamish K on March 29, 2007, 08:08:54 PM
I still can't see the photo, has any-one manged to?

I suspect there could be a dispute about what was the longest serving class (not loco)  on British Rail in 1960. Different sites give different dates for the introduction of the Beattie Well tanks, from 1862/3 to 1872/4. The ones that survived into the 1960s were built in the early 1870s.   Some may be regarding  these as a different class from the earlier locos although some clearly don't. Further the Beattie Well tanks that survived were substantially rebuilt several times, and could be considered to have been rebuilt into a different class. Of course similar issues are likely with any other contender, any loco lasting from the 1860 or 70s to the 1960s will have been modified along the way.

Can any of the UK readers (I am Australian) shed more light?

Hamish.

Thanks for the new picture, I was just getting a moving red x before.  I do know what it is but I won't spill the beans just yet, I would like to see whether, with an easier picture, others get it. It is  especially easy for fans of ................................

Whether this class (which survived to 1963) were an older class than the Beattie Well tanks is debatable for the reasons I  mentioned before. Seasaltchap's class was rebuilt into what might be regarded as a different class, and while the first members of the original class predate the survivng Beattie Well tanks, the first Well tanks were earlier. I leave this to the experts, I am not one.

Title: Re: Name That Locomotive Game
Post by: Seasaltchap on March 31, 2007, 11:12:38 AM
Thank you Hamish.

This "Terrier" is of particular interest to me.

From 1866-1869 a Mr William Stroudley was Locomotive Superintendent on the Highland Railway in the far North of Scotland, where he was responsible for building 3 small 0-6-0 engines; the forerunners of the 50 "Terriers" he subsequently built at LB&SCR, (London, Brighton & South Coast Railway) from 1872-1880.

The engines all had place names on the route from London to Brighton. As it happens No. 55 Stepney is a real working steam engine of this Class - today.

Mine was LB&SCR No.43 Gipsyhill, originally built 1877, and one of more than 20 absorbed into Southern Railway grouping of 1923, and this one was then sold in 1925 to Colonel Stephen's Weston Portishead & Clevedon Railway, as their No.2 Portishead. In 1937 the Line bought a second "Terrier" ex.LBSCR No.53 Ashtead, renumbered No.4, to assist with stone traffic to Brunel's Great Western Railway mainline at Portishead, from the Black Rock Quarries between Clevedon and Portishead,

The WC&PRly operated from 1888, and went into receivership in 1909. It remained operational until the GWR finally purchased the line and all the rolling stock in 1940, when the line was closed to operations. One Sunday two trains were madeup of all the rolling stock and taken to GWR Swindon about 40 miles away - at a max. speed of 10 MPH!

Both Terriers were also taken to Swindon. No.2 ex. Gipsyhill returned to GWR Clevedon in GWR livery, now as their No.5, and Ashstead as No.6 subsequently sent to Nottingham. This is my OO model in the GWR No.6 livery(waiting on new number plates as No.5), which went on to see service elsewhere on GWR until 1954.

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r188/seasaltchap/black_Rock_1.jpg)
The 1st "Black Rock" is a Bachmann model.


There were rebuilds of some of the Terrier Class, putting new boilers in and extending the smokeboxes. 4' Drivers, 12" x 20" cylinders, variable tractive effort 7650-10695 lbs.

First Edition of H.C.Casserley's "The Historic Locomotive Pocketbook" [1960], Pub. Batsford; subsequently became "The Observer's Book of British Steam Locomotives" Pub. Frederick Warne. These books quote the "Terrier" as the longest surviving class on British railroads, when they were withdrawn in 1963. Of the 50 built about 12 survive, some still in steam as is LB&SCR No. 55 Stepney on the Bluebell Line in Sussex.

2.) The Weston Clevedon & Portishead Railway, Peter Strange, Twelveheads Press.

Title: Re: Name That Locomotive Game
Post by: Hamish K on March 31, 2007, 05:28:40 PM
Yes - I have always liked the "Terriers" They were probably (unless there is some other class I am unaware of) the oldest class on withdrawal in 1963, the Beattie well tanks were withdrawn in 1962 and as I mentioned, whether they were really the same class as the 1862 locos is debatable.

Is any-one else going to post a picture?

#24 was built by the Baldwin Locomotive Works of Philidelphia USA as works number 51803 and was completed in May 1919. She was built for the 2 foot gauge Sandy River & Rangeley Lakes Railroad in Maine, USA and was the last loco built for that railroad and indeed for any two foot gauge line in the USA. She had 33" drivers, 12" x 16" cylinders and weighed 54,000 lbs. The tender weighed another 37,000 lbs and held 2,000 gallons of water and 3 tons of coal. She cost $15,808.
Interestingly, Baldwin made a mistake during her construction and built the tender to wide, misreading 84" as 8' 4". She was delivered to the railroad in this condition and, though it was noticed during her unloading, she went into service with a tender 16" too wide. It was found necessarry to keep the tender pretty full of water, for if the level dropped too low, it's sloshing about had a bad effect on the loco's ride. This continued for several weeks untill July 10th 1919. On this particular day, she was operating a train of pulpwood cars over a trestle bridge whith too little water in the tender when the sloshing of the water caused the tender to de-rail which in turn caused the trestle to collapse. #24 and all her train were de-railed with many of the pulpwood cars being totally wrecked and, although the train crew of five suffered various injuries, thankfully no one was killed. Immediatley after this, the tender was cut down to correct size in the SR&RL work shops and she then performed as well as any of the railroads other loco's.
#24 worked the SR&RL untill its closure on the 30th June 1935. In the fall of that year, she was bought by a rail fan - Mr Robert Sawyer - for a reported $250. Mr Sawyer stored it at Mose Ward shed at Phillips, part of the SR&RL for several years. Sadly he never did anything with it and eventually sold it for scrap.

My first thought was "ummm..its an ex-UP engine, and the clue is the UP paintjob and UP herald on the nose!"  ;) :D

but then I "got it"

its an ex-CNW loco..the clue is the bell on the nose!  ;D

Not an entry for the game but a comment on an earlier post

#24 was built by the Baldwin Locomotive Works of Philidelphia USA as works number 51803 and was completed in May 1919. She was built for the 2 foot gauge Sandy River & Rangeley Lakes Railroad in Maine, USA and was the last loco built for that railroad and indeed for any two foot gauge line in the USA.


No #24 was not the last 2 foot loco built for an american line if you include industrial, construction or tourist railroads. A couple of examples: 3 were diesels built in 1949 for industrial service, later in tourist service on the Edaville Railroad. See http://gold.mylargescale.com/Scottychaos/MNGRR_diesel1.html (http://gold.mylargescale.com/Scottychaos/MNGRR_diesel1.html)
(thanks Scotty)

Some 2 foot gauge Shays were built for construction work in 1920. #3123 was probably the last see http://www.shaylocomotives.com/data/dataframe.htm (http://www.shaylocomotives.com/data/dataframe.htm)

There were probably other post 1919 2 foot gauge locos built for American lines, these are just a couple of types I know about.

I have to give credit to Google on this one, with the help of your "2-10-2" clue.

1. Patagonia, Argentina
2. 75 cm
3. Late 1990's (1997?)

As far as I can deduce, the picture is of RFIRT (Ramal Ferro Industrial Rio Turbio) 107 with 116's tender.

http://www.martynbane.co.uk/modernsteam/ldp/rfirt/santafes.htm (http://www.martynbane.co.uk/modernsteam/ldp/rfirt/santafes.htm)

You need to disguise your links a little more....lol...

"The Swiss Federal Railways had a highly electrified system during the Second World War, but retained little 0-6-0 tank engines for shunting. Due to war conditions coal was in short supply, but hydro-electricity remained plentiful. Therefore some of these small steam locomotives were converted to raise steam by electric heating. Power was taken at 15 kV, 16.6 Hz* from overhead lines by a pantograph, and fed to resistance heating elements in the boiler, via two transformers rated together at 480 kW. Water feed was by normal steam injectors. These unique locomotives also retained the capability of being fired by coal in the usual way."

Do we have two on the go now ?

Difficult not to read the caption for The Kitson Meyer. Line was originally 2'6", and coverted to Metre Guage later. Photo looks early so still might be 30" at that time. Also surprised if they used a Shay as basis, but stranger things.......Wikipedia says that two locos were built by the company themselves. I would think that if you were going to build a loco you would not start off with a complicated loco like the Kitson Meyer. Kitsons were a loco company in Leeds England who developed the Meyer design. Another English company, Bagnalls of Stafford, also built articulated locos of this design. One is preserved in Wales- currently on Welshpool and Llanfair.

The MBTA 6908- not a clue.

GP9B it is.

actually no..not anymore anyway.
it may have once been a GP9B, but based on the photo it is clearly now a slug.
all the radiator grills have been filled it.
so technically in the photo, its not a GP9B.

Scot


Title: Re: Name That Locomotive Game
Post by: scottychaos on August 02, 2007, 02:35:58 PM
I think I found it..
Early UP slugs, built from GP9B's in the 1970's
numbers S1 - S6.
perhaps UP's first slugs?
they dont even seem to have a model designation..known as simply "yard slugs".

see here:
http://utahrails.net/all-time/slugs-yard.php

so as to identifying the loco model, the correct answer would be "a UP yard slug, built from a former GP9B"
but it wouldnt be correct to say its actually a GP9B.

Alishan Railway in Taiwan
Alishan is a very famous forest Railroad in Taiwan. It is a narrow gauge (762mm) railroad. There are Shay Steam locomotives made by LIMA running there before. The last alive Shay steam in Taiwan is #26. Although, the steam didn't have regular run now, there are daily passenger service. If you ride the train, you can experience the triple loop around the mountain and 4 times switchback!

#11, 1910.8, abandoned before WW2
#12, 1910.8, preserved in Alishan.
#13, 1911.10(or 1910.8), preserved in Chinese Movie cutural town in Taipei.
#14, 1912.6, preserved in Puffing Billy Rail Museum in Australia.
#15, 1912.6, abandoned in Peimen workshop now.
#16, 1913.1, preserved in Tsu-Nan Forest Park in Hua-lien
#17, 1913,1, preserved in Alishan Railway Hotel in Alishan old station.
#18, 1913.1, parked in Feng-Chi-Hu garage. #21, 1912.7, preserved in Chung-Shan Park in Cha-Yi.
#22, 1913.5, preserved in Cheng-Kong-Ling.
#23, 1913.8, preserved in Alishan old station.
#24, 1913.9, preserved in Alishan Railway Hotel in Alishan old station.
#25, 1914.8, preserved in Peimen garage.
#26, 1914.8, This is the last repaired Shay steam in regular service of Alishan RR. It still can run very well,now.
#27, 1914.8, abandoned already.
#28, 1914.8, preserved in Miao-Li Rail Museum.
#29, 1914.8, preserved in Feng-Chi-Hu garage.
#30, 1915.7, abandoned already.
#31, 1917.11, Peimen. If the railway has money, this will be the next one back to service.
#32, 1917.11, Display in Chu-Chi.

I missed that. I was in Taiwan for 97 days in support of Viet-Nam. Had no money, had no car, could have had a girlfriend.....


Title: Re: Name That Locomotive Game
Post by: ASIANLIFE on August 09, 2007, 01:59:43 AM
Correct except for the unique feature.

No 26 is restored and does run occasionally. Alishan Forest Railway is owned by the Forestry Department who are, how can I put this kindly, not very commercial. One of the Shays is on the Puffing Billy line in Australia. The rest are scattered around Taiwan in various locations.

Unique feature- the 28ton Shays had the gear pinion moved to the left side of the wheel on both trucks. All other Shays have them on the right- unless someone out there knows otherwise.

I saw it in person. Well, actually, I stood on it :o. It's come a long way. Before it was like that, it was a boiler hanging from the roof :P.

So far, it looks like that. Boiler tubes are clean and in place, the wooden cab (shell) is restored (but, obviously not it place :-\), and the tender is done.

I think the RR said it'll be up it 2008/9/10... ;D

Good job Guilford Guy.  It is indeed a SW-9 locomotive.  This locomotive was painted by my Grandpa Richard K. Thompson.  This locomotive also stayed in Brookville PA in Jefferson County.  Today there is no trace of this locomotive or the other ones that the Pittsburg & Shawmut railway sold. :'(

hmmm..I doubt that is true!
there should still be a few PS&N locos floating around somewhere..

To Google!  ;D

Lycoming Valley has three ex-Shawmut engines,
including 1776! she is now 239:

there are probably more..

and Frog,
could you please tone-down that signature pic of the tractor?
its WAYYYYYY too big for a signature pic.
100X200 pixels is reasonable.

Ohio Power Company #3 0-6-0
The 3 was built in 1920 by Baldwin Locomotive Works for Ohio Power Company. 

OPC later became part of American Electric Power, who donated the 3 and also steam locomotive No. 2 to the Hocking Valley Scenic Railway in the late 1980's. 

The 3 is undergoing a full restoration inside the Nelsonville shops.

then you paste the URL of the image between the tags.

if you click the

Since its been guessed, I can give away my trade secrets..and its a really interesting webpage too!  ;D

First, right-click on the photo, that gives us:

http://www.derbysulzers.com/argentinaloco1951.jpg

That gives us Argentina and 1951.
IT also gives us Sulzer, but at the time I didnt know that was relevant.
(I honestly had no clue what this engine was!)

paste http://www.derbysulzers.com/argentinaloco1951.jpg into your browser, opening the photo..backspace to the main page, being:

http://www.derbysulzers.com/

click on main menu.
do a ctrl-F (find) for Argentina, we arrive here:

http://www.derbysulzers.com/argentinadmu1935.html

If the photo hadnt given itself away, I wouldnt have had the remotest clue..

very interesting page!  :)

If you are going to post photoshopped pics, at least have a LITTLE skill please! the average 5 year old could do better than that.. (http://www.bachmanntrains.com/home-usa/board/Smileys/default/rolleyes.gif)

(Corrie, yes I know you didnt make that handcar pic, you just found it and posted it here...I wasnt referring to you!)

I dont understand what "whats that to mean" means..

If we are talking about the same thing, it simply means dont post lame stuff!  ;)  that handcar with the cylinders is just pointless, its a waste of bandwidth..and the first thing everyone saw when they saw it was not "oh cool! what IS that thing? its so mysterious! a handcar with cylinders? wow, thats very interesting!"...no..instead what everyone instantly thought was: "wow, what a patheticly bad photoshop job!"

I know you didnt make it, but its still just plain lame..
I was referring more to the lameness of ALL the photoshopped images on that Berliner site, they just plain suck, which has nothing to do with you!
I didnt mean to make it personal..
just think a bit before you post something that is *so obviously* fake!
it should at least be a slight challenge!  ;)

The Erie P-1 tiplex, the Matt H. Shay. Only 3 built between 1914 and 1916. It was built to carry 640 50 ton cars the problem was that the couplers on the cars in the 20's couldn't hold that weight and it only went up to 10 mph.

Technically there was only one Matt H. Shay..your quote reads like there were three of them.

yes, there were three Erie P1 2-8-8-8-2 triplexes, but only the first one was named Matt H. Shay, the other two were un-named.

FWIW, the Virginian also had a Triplex, built to the same design, but with a 4-wheel trailing truck at the back of the tender.  It fared no better than the Erie engines, and was eventually turned into 3 Mikados.

You are supposed to wait until the last one is done before posting a new one.
yours is Linville River Railway #1, a Shay locomotive built by the Lima Locomotive Works and completed on November 9, 1904.

It is an existing/surviving Shay, currently on display Goshen, Virginia.
The owner is looking for cylinders to restore it...its original cyliners are gone, because it was converted to diesel power at one time!

Read the third paragraph from the top. Im right. :D

I really hate to keep this going, because its so pointless,
but no, you are not right.
you said "and it only went up to 10 mph."

the paragraph you cite says "Another major problem with the triplexes was that the steam supply was inadequate for speeds past 10mph on the Erie and 5 mph on the Virginian."

"inadequate for speeds past 10mph" is not the same thing as "it only went up to 10 mph." It could go faster than 10mph..just not very well.

so you are still wrong.

(im really sorry everyone..I know I started this, but I wish I could take it back now..)  :P
sometimes its just pointless to try to use basic logic..

Amtrak Turbo Train re-built by Supersteel for New York State DOT.  Used for about 1 year in revenue service then stored due to a "flap" between Amtrak and NYS.  Power Cars 2141 and 2162.  If someone can help me figure out how,  I can post some shots includind the interiors.


Title: Re: Name That Locomotive Game
Post by: peterherron on November 13, 2007, 04:04:40 PM
Upon "further review" the posted picture (taken at Supersteel in Scotia, NY) was of "set 1", not "set 2" (PC 2141 and 2162) mentioned in my last reply.  It was the set used in revenue service with PC 158 and I believe 153.  It is currently stored with set 2 as well as the other 3 sets not rebuilt after the "flap" started.  Too bad as they were real crowd (passenger) pleasers with a great ride and huge windows.  Unfortunately their operating cost per passenger mile was about 3 times that of a 5 car P-32 Amfleet set.

OK this is the last time I am arguing. I cant fit "inadequate for speeds up to 10 mph". The thing only allows 160 letters or something and I used all of them.

I am still right.


Title: Re: Name That Locomotive Game
Post by: ebtnut on November 17, 2007, 02:44:13 PM
OK, Triplex problems.  The fundamental issue with the Triplexes was that the firebox could not heat sufficient water fast enough to feed all those cylinders, even with compounding.  The loco was probably capable of running at 40 mph, but poor steaming meant it ran out of breath in a real hurry.  The note regarding 10 mph references the fact that this was about as fast as the engines could run for any length of time, rather than their potential capability.  This is coupled with the fact that all that tractive effort was beyond the strength of many of the car coupler drawheads of the time, and pull-aparts were common as well.  After a brief try with the locos as road power, they were very quickly relegated to pusher service for the few years they survived.

He wasnt talking about your signature! (http://www.bachmanntrains.com/home-usa/board/Smileys/default/rolleyes.gif)
he was just talking about Triplexes in general..it was not directed at you.

how about this:

The Erie P-1 triplex, the Matt H. Shay. Built in 1914, two more triplexes followed 1916. It was built to carry 640 50 ton cars, but couplers of the "teens" couldn't hold that weight. It seldom went above 10 mph.

Thats shorter than it was, and its more accurate.

Well, I guess not the end of the Bachmann forum for sure.

Don't know if any of you guys are on dial-up, but some of us have dial-up (or am I the only one left?).  I enjoy the train photo's they are great.  The page takes a long time to load, and the large signature photos can add quite a bit.

Thomas ~40KB or at least 20 seconds
Tractor  ~18KB or at least  9 seconds

Because the page takes a long time to load, it fails to load completely most of the time.

I would love to have high speed, but the only way here is satellite.  Though if anyone wants to pay for satellite internet for me, how could I object.  Dr. EMD's pic is ~6KB or only about 3 seconds.

Thanks,

IMHO, diesels don't have gender.  Steam locos, on the other hand, were very often referred to in the feminen gender, for much the same reasons as boats. 


Title: Re: Name That Locomotive Game
Post by: scottychaos on November 26, 2007, 04:29:33 PM
Tons of people refer to locomotives, steam and diesel, as "she"..
its a tradition going back hundreds of years. IMO, a locomotive should ALWAYS be referred to as "she"!
"it" is far too impersonal, and lacks the proper respect.

Giving mechanical machines a female gender probably started with boats/ships thousands of years ago..it also applies to ships, automobiles, airplanes, trains, and mechanical machines of all sorts.

They (machines) are beautiful to behold, inspire awe as we watch them, help us do things better, Civilization as we know it would be impossible without them!, but they can also be cantankerous, require much upkeep and maintance, can be difficult to keep happy operating well, require proper respect and care at all times or they will break down, then still often break down for reasons we cant understand, and the proper repairs are often difficult to determine..but we couldnt live without them, and they make our lives better.  Their study is an endless obsession for all of mankind throughout history.

EMD is now Electro-Motive DIESEL.

Hi

Switzerland.

Due to shortage of coal during WW II, two class E3/3 switchers were equipped with heating elements in the firebox and pantographs on the roof.

With enough steam built up, they could also do switching anywhere.

A model of a E3/3, (nickname "Tigerli") was once made by Liliput of Austria.

Thomas..
this is a reply to your note..
notice that it contains "words" that form "sentences" that actually are an attempt to say something coherent to another person...and especially notice that the reply was made soon after your post..the same day in fact. there wasnt a gap of several weeks..

now..what you need to do is wait 3 or 4 weeks before posting another reply in this thread..then when you do, make it something totally insubstantial that adds no meaning or depth to the conversation..
something like "whatever" or "this is a busy thread!" or something like that..

I will check back in a month or so for your thoughtful reply!

Photoshopped pic... tiz a York built "Fruit and Nut" switcher. It was co-designed by a nutritionist and a dentist to burn cocoa beans to keep them out of children's teeth and stomach. This had an adverse affect when children could go  down to the coaling tower and load up on cocoa droppings on the ground and those left within the gauge. Cadbury chocolate bought one such unit and used waste chocolate as power. Sadly it derailed over a gooses golden egg and fell off the bridge into the chocolate river, and was thus destroyed by the hard candy rocks at the foot of the waterfall. It sunk in the river bed of pixy stix and remains there to this day covered by a layer of muddy chocolate. You can see its shadow in the river in the movie Charlie and the Chocolate Factory which was filmed at the cadbury plant, before someone added flour to the cocoa beans causing another locomotive to explode thus causing the plant to burn down, and destroying the great glass elevator.

This photogragh is a Baldwin, the boiler and domes attest to that. This basic pattern is what MDC/roundhouse is based on. Schen. had a tapered boiler and flatter turret by....my rosters say 1899-1900. Isn't that the year British makers were on strike?

Not quite sure, I only really know the 1950's / 60's. The days when British Main Line steam was at an end.


Title: Re: Name That Locomotive Game
Post by: Dr EMD on February 14, 2008, 06:20:57 PM
The American 2-6-0 tender engines were erected at Derby in 1899 and were supplied by Burnham Williams and Co., namely Baldwin Locomotive Works, Philadelphia and by the Schenectady Locomotive Works, New York. Recourse was made to America as the Derby shops were full to capacity with work, and the private locomotive builders were in the midst of a boom and suffering from strikes. As more six-coupled locomotives were needed Johnson, in company with his opposite numbers on the Great Central and Great Northern Railways, obtained sanction to purchase from the USA and orders for thirty locomotives were placed with Baldwin and ten with Schenectady.

Within a few weeks the first crates arrived at the Derby Works on 24 May 1899, the engines having been previously assembled and then dismantled again at the parent companies works. Space was found at the bottom end of No 3 bay in No 8 shop at Derby for the re-erection of the Schenectady locomotives, but the Baldwin's exceeded the capacity of the shops and space was cleared in front of the Locomotive Works offices and they were erected out in the open, this fortunately being summer time.

The first Baldwin was ready to go into service by the end of May, the range of running numbers allocated to this type being 2501-10 and 2521-40, and the first ten locomotives were completed by the end of the following month. These engines were almost entirely American save the Johnson coal-rails and MR buffing and drawgear. They had the normal (for the USA) bar frames and outside cylinders (18in x 24in) with inside valve gear. The driving wheels were 5ft diameter on a wheelbase of 6ft 3in + 8ft 6in and the pony truck wheels were 2ft 9in diameter, being 7ft 5in in front of the leading driving wheel. The boiler was pressed to 160psi and had three "domes" of varying sizes, one being a sand box on the first ring of the boiler, the next the steam dome housing the regulator and twin "Coale" pop safety valves and the last and smallest one housing chime whistle and spring safety valve. The cabs were very large by Midland standards with two side windows. One unusual feature was the bar steel support struts from the smokebox to the footplating over the pony truck. The last 20 Baldwin were built between September and November, 1899 and the class was divided between the Toton, Sheffield and Leeds running depots. A driver of that day, James Gibbs Hardy, observed "very rough workmanship" when the crates of material arrived, but modified his criticism when the first commenced running on 21 June commented in his diary "splendid weather cab, upholstered seats and the engine looks considerably better now it is in working order". He had one of these engines No 2503, booked to him to do 1000 miles and found them hard to reverse and rather poor steamers. He took the first one to Normanton where everyone stared at it, and on 24 July took the first one up the Peak to Manchester, recording that she went up the bank with 80-901b of steam. By August 8, he had completed his 1000 miles and was "very glad to get rid of her" .

The Schenectady were rather nearer to looking like Midland engines, although they also had bar frames. The outside cylinders were 18in x 24 in and the tapered boiler was pitched 7ft lin from rail, the working pressure being 160psi. Driving wheels were 5ft diameter on a 7ft + 8ft 6in wheelbase and the pony truck, having 3ft diameter wheels was placed 7ft 6in in front of the leading driving wheel. Total wheelbase was 43ft and length over buffers 51ft 11¼in with basically Midland 3,250gal tender on a shorter 12ft 3in wheelbase. Working weights were engine 49.75 tons and tender 37 tons. These were all stationed at Wellingborough.

As can be gathered from Hardy's comments these engines were not popular and some criticisms reached America causing bad feeling. Johnson gave some comparable figures quoting that, work for work, they consumed 20-25% more coal, and 50% more oil than his standard goods engines, while repairs cost 60% more. To their credit he observed that the engines cost £400 less than their British counterparts, and were at least supplied within a few months of the contract being placed, while he had to wait about three years for locomotives ordered from British firms, due in the main to the engineering strike which had forced the Midland Company to buy "Yankee" in the first place.

Supervising the contract for the Baldwin engines being built in America for the Midland was J.W. Smith, who was on January 1, 1901 to become the Chief Locomotive Draughtsman in place of T.G. Iveson.
