pictures are pictures, but it would be more meaningful if you know what the picture is to add that information.  My guess is that the ten Milw. locomotives are on their last trip.  New locomotives they remove the main road, juck locomotive they just cut the piston rod.

Post by: Trainman203 on July 10, 2018, 07:50:03 AM
The last one is a Mopac 1500 class Heavy MacArthur, possibly in St. Louis.  Yes that is an engine scrap train . It and a pull-up train taking up the rails behind it on an abandoned branch are a couple of the saddest sights in railroading.  Steam engine scrap trains were common into the early 60s although a steam engine is pulling this one.  It probably went to scrap too, it was certainly in the best condition of the lot.

The shop scene is a completely bygone world of bygone men working in bygone trades. It is likely Canadian, judging by the recessed Elesco feedwater heaters on the engines.  I remember years back an old MP shop hand telling me how they milled asbestos blocks into curves to fit around boilers for insulation, and that asbestos flakes would be swirling like a blizzard in the shop.  Can’t imagine that today.

On this page, the first two are photos of the assemblage in England of the preserved Gresley A-4 Pacifics.  Mallard holds the "official" steam speed record of 126 mph.  IIRC, this assemblage commerated that feat.  The next pic looks to be a Welsh narrow gauge train.  The trolley is operated at the Lowell, Mass.  textile factory museum.  The steam loco is stuffed and mounted.  The loco No. 40 belongs to the New Hope and Ivyland RR at New Hope, PA, running in regular tourist service.  Shay No. 4 is on the Cass Scenic RR in Cass, WV.  The sidelined loco is unfamiliar.  The 2-10-0 is obviously European, and may be Russian.  The next pic is a British railfan trip.  The set of GG-1's are parked in Philadelphia.  In all likelyhood they are laying over during the Army-Navy football game before heading out with passenger extras when the game is over.  My guess is that the photo is probably late '50's/early '60's.

Every now and then I see a photo here that I think I know what it is.  The rusty 2-8-0 and 4-6-0 side by side might be what are called by some the “ghost trains” in the woods way up in Maine, I think, a couple of hundred miles from any live rail.  They last belonged to some lumber company and were marooned up there many long years ago by business closures and successive abandonments.  They were well preserved in an enginehouse until some idiots burned it down in the 60s.  The 4-6-0 started successively leaning to the left due to ground deterioration underneath but some preservationists finally stabilized it.  The 2-8-0 is exceptionally valuable as one of the very, very few surviving ex- New York Central steam engines, surviving only by chance actually.


Title: Re: Random steam pics thread
Post by: bbmiroku on July 19, 2018, 04:46:30 PM
On the third page the rusted engines are definitely Russian or Texan.  Notice the sunfade around the star shape on the front boiler plate.  And 2-10-2 was not a very common European style; too long.  Except for the wide expanses of Russia/USSR/whatever it is/was.  But Texas railways had quite a number of them.  Not sure if any had a star, but it is the Lone Star State, so...

There’s really nothing to be educated about.  I think it’s hilarious .  Although no one in the Texas steam days though about putting a big Texas star on a Texas engine, it’s surprising that someone didn’t.  

I grew next door to Texas and only mean to be having a light hearted moment with my beloved neighbors, and relatives, to the west.  The Texans I knew and still know have , can I politely say, a quite large sense of Texas home pride .... and putting a Texas star on an engine fits right in to the mindset! 😂😂😂.

Anyone from Texas reading this?  Log in! “Educate” “me!”

A little searching says the string of derelict steamers with the "star" is taken in Siberia.

The Cass scene with the store looks like a shelf model railroad, like mine.  The other two scenes might be in winter, winter is steam at its steamy best.  I wonder how many folks here beside me remember working steam. I’m going to start a separate discussion of that.

That engine looks like it is wearing an overcoat.  Maybe the skirting is actually to keep snow and ice out of the running gear ....... although how the engineer would oil around at every stop, don’t know.

Soft canvas skirting. Works like a belly tarp on a big rig. Meant to keep cold air out and the bottom of the boiler and firebox warm. Easy to lift out of the way for servicing.

It's a scene from the "Dr. Zhivago" movie. The railway scenes were filmed in Finland, on the track laid during the 1940 Russian invasion, at the town of Joensuu, in eastern Finland, 100 miles from the real Russian border.

A long time ago when I saw Dr Zhivago, I’m pretty certain there was as actual Russian Decapod in the movie, the same as the Bachmann model.  I remembered that 1000 were built for the czar, 800 got shipped before the revolution, and 200 caught here were distributed around by the USRA with the Erie getting nearly half for some reason.  The Erie didn’t like them and sold them off to many shortlines who loved them.   There are more than a few surviving in Russia, Google.

The backlighted b/w aerial photo of a steam engine leaving a yard is almost otherworldly  .  Judging by the high headlight and the suburban cars under catenary to the left and the general industrial / urban setting makes me think PRR in maybe Pittsburgh .  Is there a caption or any info with that photo?  It’s worthy of work by the legendary Ansel Adams .

Google image search says it's the cover of this book.

Judging from the upward/outward bend of those flues, I'd wager this was the result of over-pressurization/ weakened boiler repair workand not from a crownsheet failure.

This is cool. Now that I have my browser fixed, I can all of these pics I have been missing. :)
On page 5, the Lansdowne-Windsor ferry one is neat.
Also, on page 7, the articulated going over the traffic in the city must have been quite a sight.
On page 4, the long line of rusty locos is kind of sad.
Page 8 has the tunnel under the town. Someone's inspiration? :)

On the early 4-4-0 you just posted, it looks like just a cross on the dome. I wonder if it has a purpose other than expressing one's beliefs? Or, is that a telegraph pole behind it?

Might just be a telegraph pole. I have it from a good source that the engineer was Jewish ;) ;D

That’s all good stuff Sid.
Every picture so far, is new to me.
I really love the pic with the wooden rails, that’s the beginning of North American Railroading as we know it.

Thanks for posting, looking forward to more.

I'm pretty sure that first Shay pic on page 12 is printed backwards.  IIRC, there were only a couple of "left-handed" Shays, and they were two-cylinders, narrow gauge, and built for export.  I would note that at one time Ford Motor Co. had a Shay for a plant switcher.  Henry Ford didn't like the off-center boiler design, so they had Lima build one with the boiler centered on the frame.

That Shay on page 12 is 'right' handed.  The tender is to the left (rear).  I read somewhere that the horse-drawn
carriages on city streets were a bit shy and get a little skittish when one of these loud, smoke-belching screamers
would get close.  So the city engineers would try to 'hide' them to fool the horses.  Don't know if it worked or not.

...Also, the 4-truck shay on the same page:  That's the first 4-truck picture I've seen that wasn't a model.

Edit:  Just looked at 'all' pages, the backwards shay is on page 11.

Thanks for posting.

Technical correction - The ACL loco is a 2-4-2, sometimes referred to as a Columbia type.  Common type for small switchers and tank engines, very rare as a main line road engine. 


Title: Re: Random steam pics thread
Post by: Len on August 22, 2018, 09:13:35 AM
The "W & W RR" on the bunker extensions stands for "Wilmington & Weldon RR", where #154 was first assigned. On the ACL they were the I-2 class, maybe because there were only two of them. They were in service for almost 40 years.

More info on them can be found here: http://steam.wesbarris.com/locobase.php?country=USA&wheel=2-4-2&railroad=acl

Although this is called the “Washington-Western “, I remember  it being called the  “Washington AND Western “ as well.  Saw these beat up steam engines running several times back then.

The Wilmington & Weldon RR is was the beginning of the Atlantic Coast Line Company, which eventually merged with the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad (ACL). Some of it's early history can be found here: https://www.ncpedia.org/wilmington-weldon-railroad

Len they don't go through floods that get up to the firebox.  If they did it would put the fire out and they would go dead.  I would think that they did not go through flowing water.  With the end of steam, that put an end of going through flood water over an inch or so deep.

My long deceased uncle was a T&NO fireman in the 1920s.  He was on one of the last trains out of Baton Rouge La. to Lafayette La. on the Atchafalya Basin line that was largely washed out in the great 1927 Mississippi River flood.  He said the water was close to the driver axles and was running pretty hard.  They were trying to save set out cars at first but gave up.  People were climbing onto the train out of  boats. 

Some of that line can still be seen today in the form of concrete bridge piers and rotted out trestle piles during low water in the swamp in August.

I like Chinese steam engines.  Fairly Americanized, for lack of a better term, because they patterned after imported US built engines, I read once somewhere.

Watch the movie Railroad Tigers.  Funny action / martial arts Chinese film set in WW II that features 2 SY 2-8-2’s in plenty of action.  One is supposedly destroyed running off a tall bridge but that might be computer generated.

The last 5 are blank posts for some reason .

I really liked the backshop scene with the CB&Q  O class 4-8-4, maybe the 5622?  Or even possibly the famous 5632 that hauled fans in the 60’s.

Garrets never caught on in North America.  Seems like they could have made a backward running version as a cab forward alternate.

That’s why they were called crocodiles.  I wonder why they didn’t catch on in North America.  They look like they could have easily had the cab rearranged to run tender first, and be as good as a cab forward in tunnels.

   Baldwin Locomotive Co had the rights for North America to build the Beyer-Peacock Garretts

  American Locomotive Co had the NA rights to build the Kitson-Meyer, one proposal for the Southern Pacific was for a 4-8-2+2-8-4, with a  seperate 12 wheel tender, with a total weight of 352 Tons.

  74 Kitson-Meyer engines were built, 68 of these were narrow gauge, ranging from 2 FT 6  inch to
1 Meter gauge. My personal favorite articulated engine rather the Garretts. I will admit I do have a
OO scale LMS 2-6-0+0-6-2 model. Also working on building a 2-6-0+0-6-2 Kitson-Meyer.

  The upper set of driven wheels are for the Rack drive on the engine, you can just
make out the the pinon wheels between the two sets of adhesion drivers.

I rode the Reader in 1963.  A landmark experience.  Put me forever in the shortline mood for Model railroading.  Never did a mainline layout again.

My dad got to talking to a retired KCS guy on the train.  A couple of weeks after we got home, Railway  Express (remember them?) called to pick up something at the depot.  It was two metal oil drums.  Inside each was a carefully packed KCS kerosene caboose marker lamp.

REA is how we knew Christmas was getting close when I was a kid living near the New Haven 'Shore Line' route. Sometime in the week after Thanksgiving a train hauling 15 - 20 REA cars from New York to Providence and Boston would roll through. That's when we knew it was time to start making the list for Santa.

There is a you tube video somewhere of one of those fast trains in the steam days, those really cool 50 ‘ cars on express trucks, a streamlined  steam engine up front if I remember correctly, and a caboose.

We never had anything that grand, it was just a couple of Pullman green Railway Express box cars on the head end of T&NO no. 5, a mail run, or no. 2, the eastbound Sunset Limited.

The Pacific Local, the commuter train from Pacific, Mo., to Union Station, stops at a station in Webster Groves in January 1946.

Missouri Pacific locomotive No. 15 at the station in Bush, Ill., about 10 miles northeast of Carbondale, shortly after making its last coal run on April 6, 1955.

The crew gets ready to take Missouri Pacific locomotive No. 15 on a final run hauling coal in southern Illinois on April 6, 1955. It was one of the railroad's last 11 steam locomotives, all used to shuttle coal trains north of Carbondale, Ill. The railroad marked the occasion in a brief ceremony in the yard at Bush, Ill., north of Carbondale. Standing are (from left) trainmaster B.B. Brenton, yardmaster W.R. Turnage, Illinois division superintendent Roy W. Parker, brakeman Buck Hestand, conductor Otto Beeson, and brakeman N.C. Vaughn. In the cab are (left) fireman Ray Masters and engineer Ed Spegal. The following day, the 11 engines were hauled to the scrapyard in Dupo.

No. 40, the helper engine, belches coal smoke behind No. 124 as they pull nine others like them, all headed for the scrapping shop. In front of the helper is a tank car carrying water. That was needed because the railroad already had removed most of its trackside water tanks. The photo was taken from the tender of No. 124, in the lead.

Locomotive No. 124 and a helper engine pull the rest of the Missouri Pacific's last steam locomotives across the Illinois countryside on April 7, 1955, on their way to Dupo, where they were scrapped. From then on, the St. Louis-based railroad used only diesel power.

In a final indignity to the age and romance of steam, the Missouri Pacific blows up its last coaling tower in the St. Louis area in December 1955, eight months after retiring its last steam locomotives. The tower, in the Dupo yard, was built in 1917. The railroad's last 11 steam locomotives were taken to Dupo in April 1955 for scrapping.

And they ran out of coal, and a diesel had to pull them the last few miles.

Dupo was just across the Jefferson Barracks Bridge from me in my teenage years and where we could go to make underage beer runs.

Naughty naughty Terry.

But I really like the images of articulated engines going around a tight curve.  It's like the engine is running along and then it has to swerve and goes "nope nope nope nope nope gotta stay on the rails...".


Title: Re: Random steam pics thread
Post by: Terry Toenges on October 02, 2018, 12:40:19 PM
When I looked at that one, it reminded me of all the folks on here who complain about people trying to run big locos on tight curves and the overhang it creates. ;D


Title: Re: Random steam pics thread
Post by: bbmiroku on October 03, 2018, 12:18:07 AM
To be fair though, most of the time, the overhang on the prototype would max out at just over what was in that pic, while in small scale, even at large-radius curves the boiler is hanging over thin air if it was scaled back up.

It would drive some people plum crazy if they had to watch my O27 "General" on standard O27 track. I could probably put a mower blade on the pilot to keep the weeds down along the outside of curves.

Here's something you don't see every day, a one-truck Heisler.

I'm pretty sure that little Heisler is a fireless loco.  No visible stack and the fat boiler.  Heisler made a number of fireless locos over the years.  I saw one in operation at a power plant in Alexandria, VA back in the early 1970's.

If we could get model railroad steam engine smoke to look like in the picture of cab forward no. 4120, I’d have smoke units in every engine.

Those low lying weird ducks are certainly meant to go into mines with those low profiles.

And I appreciated the tank engine sequence.  They can be weird ducks too, but some have attractive characteristics, particularly around the smokebox with visored headlights and polished paint jobs.  Most of the engines belonged to private non railroad companies to switch within their facility, and as one can see in the photos , upkeep of these little teakettles could vary widely from proud polish to pure neglect.

Great sequences. streamlined steam could be beautiful or horrific, dependent on the viewer.    It’s also good once in a while to look at really early trains again, and compare to today.  When those early trains appeared the fastest a human could go on Earth was on a horse or falling off of something high.

I've read that the Best Friend of Charleston's fireman set a speed record when the boiler exploded underneath him.

I really like the apocalyptic scene of the three TRRA 0-8-0’s in St. Louis, before smoke abatement laws 😂😂.  The cornfield meet on the previous page looks like two early SP 4-6-2’s, someone needs to check the engine numbers.

Looks like the Quartermaster's Corps. (QMC USA) liked the little tank shunter (switcher) so much that they put some guiding wheels on it to save time from rerailing the thing when they inevitably ran it too fast on a track.

Although it does appear to be of a European design...

Ah.  Upon a quick google search comes the answer...

In the wreck with 2843 and 2800 - Did they bring their own chairs to sit and watch or get them out of one of the cars?

Post by: bbmiroku on November 23, 2018, 11:38:03 PM
Google wasn't too much help other than it was in Manitoba (Canadian Pacific).  Considering the background and the clothing, it looks like maybe an excursion train or something, maybe late summer or early fall.  If it was an excursion train, they probably did come out of the "chair car", as those larger wicker chairs can be quite heavy and one wouldn't generally take one with them traveling.


Title: Re: Random steam pics thread
Post by: Trainman203 on November 24, 2018, 03:38:13 PM
I’m pretty certain that 2843 and 2800 are Central Pacific engines, by the CP on the tenders.  If the pixels allowed, you’d see that the lettering on the cab would say Southern Pacific .  Central Pacific became southern Pacific right around 1900 and Central Pacific would have been a subsidiary, hence the sublettering on the tender.  This lettering scheme with big numbers on the tender was early SP and UP as well, both Harriman roads, and was used until maybe 1920 or so.

Knowing this, I’d locate this scene in CA or NV just before 1900 .


Title: Re: Random steam pics thread
Post by: Trainman203 on November 26, 2018, 08:56:25 AM
Those CP engines in the cornfield meet are both low drivered 4-8-0’s, an unusual engine type in North America.  Also, low drivered engines like that didn’t often protect passenger service, the mountain setting probably accounts for that.

The hillside behind looks like a recent fire happened, probably set by wood burning engines.

One of the two otherwise similar same-class engines has a diamond stack , the other has a straight one, suggesting that this incident was during a wood to coal engine fuel transition.  SP burned coal in its engines for a while before they went to oil.  This would help date  the picture pretty closely.

I thought that 551 was a bomb hit.

Ive seen fighter plane cam from an allied fighter zooming in on a German steam engine pulling a freight.  You can see steam blowing out of each bullet hit hole and as the  plane pulls up , on the bottom of the screen you can see the cloud of steam from the boiler explosion.

Terry, once it's up on its toes like that (so to speak), there's almost zero chance of it coming back down on its own unless it is sideways.  And once a lot of the water is gone, like in a boiler explosion (which I guarantee is what happened to the cab), it would be 'bottom' (front)-heavy, and even more stable.


Title: Re: Random steam pics thread
Post by: Trainman203 on November 29, 2018, 09:02:14 AM
551 could well be a boiler explosion, good explanation of the effects .  It also explains why the adjacent track is undamaged, whereas a bomb would have made a crater.  Good catch, sir.

If you look closely, the track in front of the man is curled upwards.  Bomb may have hit the track in front of the train.  Or maybe a bomb under the track.

What I said about the boiler explosion would've happened after the train got to its position, as the water sloshed forward and left the firebox completely dry and weakening the flue sheet and top sheet.


Title: Re: Random steam pics thread
Post by: Terry Toenges on December 01, 2018, 11:25:12 AM
Would the dome lids just pop up like that on their own with a blast from underneath or is it possible that it was no longer in service and nothing in the boiler and the cab had already been removed?
It is strange that there is no crater and the track that the guy is standing on is still ok.
If it hit in front of it, how would the curled track happen?


Title: Re: Random steam pics thread
Post by: RAM on December 01, 2018, 08:55:30 PM
 think it was a bomb because it is missing the side rode on the last driver


Title: Re: Random steam pics thread
Post by: Terry Toenges on December 01, 2018, 10:04:24 PM
The side rod is hanging down from the second to last driver. Missing the bolt to secure it to the last driver. Maybe the bolt was scavenged to repair another loco which fits in with the "out of service". Cab was scavenged. No bells or whistles on top. It kind of looks like the headlight is laying on the deflector in front.
If it was a bomb and it was powerful enough to blow the cab off, wouldn't that much power have caused the tender and loco have come loose from one another?

Look at the damage to the engines and things behind the popped-up engine.  There was, at the least, a fire.

Popped domes and busted siderod could both be caused by the rapid decompression known as a boiler explosion.  Dome lids through the water rapidly turning into steam (think of a bottle of soda) and the side rod from the ashpan blowout.


Title: Re: Random steam pics thread

Those domes with lids are the sand boxes if i am not mistaken.

Frankly, it doesn't seem like there is enough boiler there to support 4 sets of cylinders.  Any info on how that worked out?

That is 3 sets of cylinders on those triplexes.  They were failed experiments.  It took multiple firemen to keep up with steam demand, mechanical stokers hadn’t been invented yet.  One engineer couldn’t easily control basically 3 locomotives under one boiler.  These huge mama-jamas were terrifically destructive to the track as well.  These engines passed the limit of pre- super power steam technology and failed.  And early diesels were only 10 years or so in the future. 

Plans had been drawn by the Santa Fe for a quintplex around that time but articulated steam was basically done, except for maybe the N&W A clsss and the challengers/big boys of 20 years later...... but by then the diesel genie was already out of the bottle.

Just don't believe everything you see on the net. Lima was wanting to build a 4-8-6, but no takers.

Yeah.  So if anybody ever tells you that you have to paint your locos, tell 'em nope and show 'em a pic.

I have a friend who worked for the CB&Q until they cut all of the firemen.  He put the 3652 into the roundhouse for the night in K.C. Mo.  He said it was a real nice locomotive.

The 5632, and GTW 4-6-2 5629, were both privately owned by the same guy who through a series of perfect-storm type bunglings,  let them both be scrapped at very late dates.

The Q’s O class 4-8-4 has always been one of my favorite engines.  One other one survives on display in Colorado, ironically the 5629 if I have it right.  There may be a third.  I especially like the Mars light, which I recently found out was first invented by the Mars candy company as an advertising gimmick.

Reply #668 was taken in the B&O RR Museum "Large Pieces" Collection building.

And #671 looks like it was taken outside of the B&O Roundhouse during the early 1860's

The two early construction photos are on the Rock Island.  It took a while to see, but it is barely visible  on the caboose sides.  Plus, the herald on the work car behind the engine says “Rock Island System “ instead of just “Rock Island.“ I’ve never seen that before, this is very early.  Plus, the rail being laid appears to be pre-connected in multiple lengths, brought in laying over several flat cars and winched up to the front to be put down on the ties, a very early cousin of welded rail.  These are astounding and interesting photos in several aspects.  I guessed at first the very barren location to be Western Oklahoma possibly, but could it be northern tundra prairie?  Something I’m not familiar with.

Post by: Trainman203 on January 01, 2019, 12:41:05 PM
Actually, looking closer, it’s cross ties being conveyered up to the front,  still very cool early mechanized track laying technology .


Title: Re: Random steam pics thread
Post by: Trainman203 on January 01, 2019, 01:06:52 PM
Another interesting thing is the hoses from the engine, suspended from the flat cars, to whatever the head end device is called, certainly conveying steam up to a dependant non powered piece of equipment.  Pipes go down to the trucks, makng me think that the equipment may have some limited self powered mobility too, limited by hose slack.

Really interesting photos.  Thanks Sid, any idea where they came from?


Title: Re: Random steam pics thread
Post by: Terry Toenges on January 01, 2019, 01:36:39 PM
Where is the rail coming from? I see the thing with the arch in it that is shuffling the ties to the front. Is the rail coming from the opposite side? Or is that a piece of rail (toward the bottom, under the arch) ready to be laid?


Title: Re: Random steam pics thread
Post by: RAM on January 01, 2019, 01:41:31 PM
I may be wrong, but I think what you think is hoses is part of the conveyor system.  The film is very slow, and any one moving is lost.  My guess is that you have two men take the ties and move it to the end and the then go to the back of the line.  This was hard work and this was before they had work rules.

  Looking from the front of the tie & rail laying train.
   Ties are moved to the front on the left side of the train, rail is moved up the right side of the train.

The reverse-arching under the car bodies is sectional track already bolted together.  Above the car bodies is a tie conveyer of some sort.

When I looked at that one, it reminded me of all the folks on here who complain about people trying to run big locos on tight curves and the overhang it creates. ;D

And with that picture of the 1218, they'll never heed the accusation of "not prototypical" ever again.

Made a mistake.  Meant to say pre-bolted rail, not sectional track.

Also, the photoshopping in that ad for Mountain Living is... well, it makes it look like an object to find in a computer game.

bbmiroku,  If you are referring to reply 724, They are using single rail.  They can only move the rail as far as the boom and reach.  My guess is since the man is pulling on the rope that they are getting ready to drop the right hand rail.

Looks like its being used as a boiler and not as a locomotive. But i'm hoping i'm wrong.

Bob Grimm is one of those guys who likes to work on projects that are unique and BIG. In 2007, he started building a working replica of a steam locomotive. The finished outfit measures 40 ft. long, 8 ft. wide, 12 ft. tall and weighs more than 10 tons. Grimm’s machine rides on rubber tires instead of rails so he can drive it on the road in local parades so people experience railroad history in an entirely new way.
“I thought about making it smaller at first, but the more I penciled stuff out the more it made sense to make it almost full size, just like a real locomotive,” Grimm says. He’s had a fascination with steam engines since he was a kid. “I grew up on a farm and the train track ran nearby. I remember locomotives chugging by with the steam pouring out, the whistle blowing and the sound of wheels on the rails. It was a real thrill to watch them.”
Grimm drew up his plans based on pictures of a Baldwin steam locomotive. His son, who’s the equipment manager at the Black Hills Central Railroad in Rapid City helped him with several details. “I wanted to make the engine look as realistic as possible,” Bob says, “so I took my time and did a lot of research before getting started.”
Grimm’s locomotive is built on the same principle as an old time steam engine. It has a boiler mounted on a large chassis with four large driven wheels and two sets of smaller wheels in the front. Wood is burned in a firing chamber to heat water and produce steam. The steam flows into a high pressure slide valve that drives two pistons. The piston control rod is hooked to the cross head, which is connected to the drive rod and coupling rods that drive the wheels. The valve can be rotated to power the machine forward or backward. Exhaust steam leaves the piston chamber in a loud “choo” sound and blows white puffs as it billows up the stack and out the top. The faster the piston moves, the quicker the exhaust billows and the faster the locomotive moves.
Grimm built the chassis for his rig from the frame of an old tandem axle semi tractor. He removed the front wheels and axle, then made a special frame that sits below and outside the main frame to mount four steerable wheels. He converted the rear tandem axles to extra large single wheels fitted with 42-in. tires. The rear wheels have large reciprocal plates connected together with a 2-in. thick metal rod. “There’s a piston on each side, so the wheels are timed and pull in unison,” Grimm says. The front of the frame has two steerable wheels that let him turn the locomotive in a wide arc around corners.
Steam is generated by a wood-fired Ellsworth boiler. He located pistons from an old steam pile driver and built all of the components that connect the steam power system to the wheels. “I was able to machine some parts on my lathe, but the large and difficult ones I had done by a local machine shop. I fabricated most of the other metal work myself and had the shop do some of the more difficult cuts,” Bob says. Even the lubrication is similar to a real locomotive, with the crank pin and crosshead bearings holding small cup-shaped reservoirs for oil.
Included in the overall design is a fully functional engineer’s cabin that has wood sides, a metal roof and scroll-cut windows. The engineer steers the front wheels with a 2-ft. dia. steering wheel and tends the steam boiler by observing functional gauges and regulating the pressure with hand valves. A large bell and steam whistle are mounted on top of the boiler. Grimm built a replica cow catcher on the front of the locomotive and also mounted a large headlight in the middle in front of the boiler. A trailing axle supports a tender on the back of the locomotive that holds the 500-gal. water tank and wood supply to feed the boiler. “It looks and sounds like a real locomotive,” Bob says, “and that’s exactly what I was trying to achieve.”
After he finished building the steam components he tested the system with an air compressor and the power transfer worked fine. He fired the boiler and set the relief valves at 100 lbs. to guard against too much pressure. Bob says the “street speed” for his locomotive is maximum 5 mph. Frequent stops during a parade aren’t a problem because the locomotive has a special brake system and the wheel drive mechanism easily disconnects from the transmission.
Grimm says that even though building his locomotive took more than 7 years and well over 2,000 hours of labor, he never lost interest and always knew he’d get it done. “It was a huge undertaking,” Bob says with modesty, “something that I hope people will appreciate for a long time.”

One like this is always in parades in St. Louis. It belongs to the Forty and Eight club. Not this exact one. I think they have a newer one now.

#784 was the 1912 San Antonio explosion on the GH&SA (T&NO/ SP predecessors).  A Vanderbilt tender is partially visible to the left.  A whaleback tender is visible on the right.  I posted an account several pages back. I recall that the incident occurred inside the roundhouse.  This picture shows it towed outside.

N&W J Class:  beautiful until you look at them straight from the side.  The rounded smokebox front almost projects further out than the pilot.  Weird looking.

PRR turbine:  now THAT’S weird.  Only one ever made in real life, and it was a roundly unsuccessful experiment, but thousands of models made.

Prosperity Special was a train made up entirely 24 Baldwin locomotives, part of an order of 50, left on May 27, 1922. They "headed west out of the Baldwin Locomotive Plant to East St. Louis, took the Cotton Belt Line across Texas and was switched to SP tracks in El Paso.

I guess they had a whole lot of confidence in that trestle, taking the locos over all at once.


Title: Re: Random steam pics thread
Post by: bbmiroku on February 24, 2019, 10:28:25 PM
Look at the driving wheels.  They're not turning at all.  The photo was a staged opportunity, probably by the bridge makers.  Those engines and tenders are probably empty of all water and coal, only being pushed by one locomotive, and pulled by another.  It's still a lot of weight, though less than you may think.


Title: Re: Random steam pics thread
Post by: Trainman203 on February 25, 2019, 12:25:47 PM
There was a big article about the Prosperity Special a couple of years ago in Classic Trains.  It was a publicity stunt dreamed up by Baldwin if my memory is correct, the SP didn’t come on board with the idea at first.   They were very adamant about not calling the engines “Santa Fe” types 😂😂. The 2-10-2 was the biggest non articulated thing going at the time so this was a huge event.

NOTES:

1.  The SP burned oil at this time, not coal.
2.  The Cotton Belt does not go to El Paso.  The Pecos River is well east of El Paso.  It is on the T&NO.  I think the PS came in at San Antonio but not directly from the the Cotton Belt which doesn’t go to SA either,  some one else was the intermediary, probably the MP.  I’ll look at the article tonight to see.  The Cotton Belt may have given these engines up in Dallas, where there was a T&NO connection.
3.  The main rods were carried loose on the the tender of each engine.
4.  Baldwin had a rider on the train to look after the engines, watch for hotboxes, keep the lubrication up, etc.
5.  The overall move was several weeks. The train itself didn’t go much over 20 MPH or so, and there were many festive overnight stops.

So would that have been a square tank for the oil instead of a coal bin?
I thought they were oil burners, but the shape threw me off.


Title: Re: Random steam pics thread
Post by: Trainman203 on February 26, 2019, 10:50:09 AM
Those are pretty standard oil bunker Vanderbilt tenders behind those 2-10-2’s in the pictures.  One thing in the photos that was not SP standard was the pilot ladders.  For some reason the SP and subsidiaries preferred  sheet metal steps suspended from the running boards.  I don’t think the ladders lasted very long. 

As best I know, none of the west coast SP  2-10-2’s survived, but two T&NO ones did in Texas in parks, and one may have been originally a prosperity special engine.

Post by: RAM on February 26, 2019, 03:56:50 PM
The SP used coal on the El Pasa- Tucmcari line.  Remember the Conventional 2-8-8-4 articulated locomotive.They were converted to oil-burning about 1950


Title: Re: Random steam pics thread
Post by: Trainman203 on February 26, 2019, 05:29:49 PM
I remember the 2-8-8-4 very well. That particular coal usage was a WW II oil saving measure.  Those engines were used other places in New Mexico. I remember in 1988 seeing a still standing concrete coaling tower somewhere out there  while riding the Sunset Limited.

SP burned coal until right after 1900 is my understanding, the T&NO a little later.  All coinciding with discover of local oil fields and nearby oil having much lower transportation cost than remotely located coal.


Title: Re: Random steam pics thread
Post by: RAM on February 26, 2019, 05:52:17 PM
when the usra  took over the railroad in ww1. They built some concrete coaling tower in Okla on the Santa Fe and the Katy.  They were never used, because both lines used oil for fuels.  Both lines did have sections where they used coal.

The locomotive made its initial run on the first six miles of track of the South Carolina Canal and Railroad Company. Chartered in 1827, the same year that the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad was incorporated, the South Carolina Canal and Railroad Company steamed out of Charleston. The new line was designed to make Charleston competitive with Savannah, Georgia, for the cotton trade.

Over the next three years the South Carolina Canal and Railroad Company became, for a time, the world’s longest railway line. The company was a predecessor of J. P. Morgan’s Southern Railway Company, which grew out of the realignment of southern railways following the American Civil War.

The running gear of the first electric locomotives were an evolution of the steam locomotives, just with an electric motor replacing all the steam generation equipment.

Re:  855, the Best Friend was notable as the first all U.S.-built steam loco in service.  It was also the first U.S. steam loco to suffer a boiler explosion six months after it went into service.  Reputedly, the fireman got annoyed with the constant noise of the safety valve and shut it off.  He did not survive the explosion.  The modern replica was built in 1928 to commemorate the centenary of the company. 

No. 857 shows the working guts of the Pennsylvania RR's DD-1.  The locos were a paired set of 4-4-0's and used with the opening of the electrified portion between Manhattan Transfer, NJ and Penn Station.  IIRC, there is a representative in the museum in Strasburg.

The parts of the Pennsylvania RR that were electrified, were electrified in different stages in different ways.  Some was third rail and some was overhead.  Urban street-level track would've been overhead, while the inter-suburbs lines and subways would probably be third rail    Both were massively deadly to the touch (DC), and I believe were mostly converted to AC near the end.

The dd1s were built starting in 1910. Most of them were replaced by the L5s in 1924 and they were sent to the Long Island.  in 1930 Penn rr change to AC.  the remaining DD!s were either send to the Long Island or scrapped.  Long Island units were scrapped 1949-1951.  Unit 3936-3937 is in the Penn. rr museum.  The pams were only used at slow speed in the yards or stations.

#852 is an ATSF compound engine, with certainly one of the very last oil headlights, converted to electricity as per the turbogenerator in front of the cab.  The blue Pennsylvania power and light engine is the biggest fireless cooker I’ve ever seen.

Winans Camel.
I bashed one of these in HO about ten years ago using a MDC 2-8-0. I did the short furnace. They were bult in short, medium, long furnace. '
Over size but captured the flavor. 51 inch drivers instead of 43 inch drivers. Used an article from MR or RMC. Cab from styrene.
Headlight side saddle. Saw a couple pictures in White's book on locos many years ago.

http://tinyurl.com/yx8z2mt2

I have seen a similar Camel at the B&O museum in Baltimore. No Winans were ever preserved. A few were converted to 2-6-0's. B&O took apart the last one around the late 1890's. It chugged in the yard for many years. The photo is online. The B&O is supposed to have had almost two hundred and built in the middle 1850's.

I just wonder what kind of control they had in the viewing cab.  It looks like some of them had a horn.  and maybe an air line to send  signals to the engine, like they used on passenger trains.  I am sure they had a brake valve in case they wanted to stop to check out something.

If you look closely along the roofline of the inspection section of reply #909, near what looks like a distortion of the picture, there is a line leading to the whistle.  So they probably had a pullcord.
But I like your 'splanation better Terry. :P

That’s almost certainly the elevated railroad in New York before 1900.  I say that because of the apparent lack of motor vehicles on the street.

Can anyone tell us what gauge track the elevated had?

That’s a Forney engine. I’ve always heard that after the elevated electrified , a number of the Forneys went to sugar cane plantations .

Post by: ebtnut on March 27, 2019, 01:46:56 PM
The photo would have been taken after 1893 when the 3rd Ave. trolley line went to cable operation.  You can see the slot between the running rails.  In 1909 the system went to electric operation.  The below-ground cableway was rebuilt to a conduit system, like Washington DC used into the early 1960's.  I tend to agree with Trainman that the photo is around 1900 or earlier.  Old elevated Forneys went to a lot of places - cane plantations, logging railroads, would-be trolley lines that didn't have the resources to install the electrics, etc.

The buffers look a bit incongruous on this American-designed and built locomotive but a large number of these United States Army Transportation Corps S160 Class Consolidations were exported to Britain to help in the war effort. After the invasion of Normandy, they disappeared from Britain, moved to the continent in military service. By wars end over two thousand were in service in Europe providing motive power on the rebuilt railways.
About twenty five units have been preserved in various countries, some in operating condition.

The Timken "Four Aces" was built by the American Locomotive Co. in 1930 under the auspices of the Timken Corporation for the purpose of demonstrating the importance and use of roller bearings on all axle journals of steam loco*motives. Rather than rebuild an existing engine, a new one was built so that it could be impartially tested by any interested railroads. Fifty manu*facturers of locomotive appliances co-operated with Timken in the proj*ect, with a 4-8-4 type being chosen, this to have a top speed of 85 miles an hour.

On the last pic, the guy in front on the horse has on a uniform and it looks like a conductor's hat. I wonder if he has anything to do with the train. Advance man or something? Or, maybe he is leading the beer or whatever wagon to where it's going?

The picture is possibly related to Death Avenue and the West Side Cowboys. Google is your friend.

I knew about the El being converted to a park and walkway but I didn't know about the Westside Cowboys. That picture is in this video.

reply #1008 (page 68)... is that one of those electric-steam engines? :P


Title: Re: Random steam pics thread
Post by: RAM on July 03, 2019, 04:39:45 PM
no.  1008 is just a steam locomotive under wire.  In 1007, it looks like 4 people working and 20 people watching.

In 1007, nearly everyone (“not ‘working‘ “)  is a suit.  This might be some kind of experimental or test thing in progress that various superintendents and maybe vendor reps  are checking on.

The engine is Canadian as evidenced by the oval perforated step on the front end of the running board.

In 1024, the cylinders are different sizes.  This means a “compound “ locomotive, using steam twice, once in the the small cylinder and then, spent, under lower pressure to the large one.  This idea proved to be maintenance heavy and was largely out of favor in North America by 1910 and the time that mikados were gaining popularity.

I'm pretty sure that what is in the pic is a cylinder and valve casting, not two cylinders.  Casting technology had not yet gotten to where and entire cylinder block could be cast as one piece.  So this is one half of a cylinder/valve set.  By the 1930's/early '40's casting technology had advanced to the point where entire engine beds - frames and cylinders, could be cast as one piece.  \

There were a few cross-compound locos built around the turn of the 20th century.  They had a high-pressure cylinder on one side and a low pressure cylinder on the other.  There was also the Vauclain compound, designed by Sam Vauclain of Baldwin.  There, the high pressure, low pressure and valve were all cast together, which gave a distinctive appearance to the cylinder assembly.

Yes you are correct.  The casting is mounted sideways, that is what threw me
