Steam engines come in a wide variety of configurations. Each produces a signature motion. Shown here are six different types of steam engines: Beam, Horizontal, 2-Cylinder Marine, 4-Post Vertical, Vertical with Planetary Gearing and a 5-Cylinder Radial configuration. Digital photos of these and many more engines designed by Rudy Kouhoupt can be seen at www.CraftsmanshipMuseum.com/Kouhoupt.htm. Rudy was a prolific designer of steam engines and has offered plans and instructions for many of these engines in articles in magazines like Popular Mechanics and The Home Shop Machinist. A number of these have been reproduced and are once again available through Village Press in Michigan. See https://secure.villagepress.com/store/items/list/group/280.

What is STEAM ENGINE? What does STEAM ENGINE mean? STEAM ENGINE meaning - STEAM ENGINE definition - STEAM ENGINE explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. A steam engine is a heat engine that performs mechanical work using steam as its working fluid. Steam engines are external combustion engines, where the working fluid is separate from the combustion products. Non-combustion heat sources such as solar power, nuclear power or geothermal energy may be used. The ideal thermodynamic cycle used to analyze this process is called the Rankine cycle. In the cycle, water is heated and transforms into steam within a boiler operating at a high pressure. When expanded through pistons or turbines, mechanical work is done. The reduced-pressure steam is then condensed and pumped back into the boiler. In general usage, the term steam engine can refer to either the integrated steam plants (including boilers etc.) such as railway steam locomotives and portable engines, or may refer to the piston or turbine machinery alone, as in the beam engine and stationary steam engine. Specialized devices such as steam hammers and steam pile drivers are dependent on the steam pressure supplied from a separate boiler. Using boiling water to produce mechanical motion goes back over 2000 years, but early devices were not practical. The Spanish inventor Jerónimo de Ayanz y Beaumont obtained the first patent for a steam engine in 1606. In 1698 Thomas Savery patented a steam pump that used steam in direct contact with the water being pumped. Savery's steam pump used condensing steam to create a vacuum and draw water into a chamber, and then applied pressurized steam to further pump the water. Thomas Newcomen's atmospheric engine was the first commercial true steam engine using a piston, and was used in 1712 for pumping in a mine. In 1781 James Watt patented a steam engine that produced continuous rotary motion. Watt's ten-horsepower engines enabled a wide range of manufacturing machinery to be powered. The engines could be sited anywhere that water and coal or wood fuel could be obtained. By 1883, engines that could provide 10,000 hp had become feasible. The stationary steam engine was a key component of the Industrial Revolution, allowing factories to locate where water power was unavailable. The atmospheric engines of Newcomen and Watt were large compared to the amount of power they produced, but high pressure steam engines were light enough to be applied to vehicles such as traction engines and the railway locomotives. Reciprocating piston type steam engines remained the dominant source of power until the early 20th century, when advances in the design of electric motors and internal combustion engines gradually resulted in the replacement of reciprocating (piston) steam engines in commercial usage, and the ascendancy of steam turbines in power generation. Considering that the great majority of worldwide electric generation is produced by turbine type steam engines, the "steam age" is continuing with energy levels far beyond those of the turn of the 19th century.

What is MODEL STEAM ENGINE? What does MODEL STEAM ENGINE mean? MODEL STEAM ENGINE meaning - MODEL STEAM ENGINE definition - MODEL STEAM ENGINE explanation. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. A model steam engine is a small steam engine built as an educational toy for children (in which case it is also called a toy steam engine) or for adult live steam enthusiasts. Between the 18th and early 20th centuries, demonstration models were also in use at universities and engineering schools, frequently designed and built by students as part of their curriculum. Model steam engines have been made in many forms by a number of manufacturers, but building model steam engines from scratch is popular among adult steam enthusiasts, although this generally requires access to a lathe and/or milling machine. Those without a lathe can alternatively purchase prefabricated parts. Toy steam engines will commonly have fewer features (such as mechanical lubricators or governors), and operate at lower pressures, while model steam engines will place more emphasis on similarity to life-sized engines. Manufacturers such as Wilesco sell both simple toy engines for beginners (e.g. the D3) and more intricate model engines that are meant to be used to drive things like workshops or boats. Model steam engines typically use hexamine fuel tablets, methylated spirits (aka meths or denatured alcohol), butane gas, or electricity to heat the boiler. Cylinders are either oscillating (single-acting or double-acting) or fixed cylinder using slide-valves, piston valves or poppet valves (normally double-acting). Spring safety valves and steam whistles are other common features of model steam engines. Some stationary engines also have feedwater pumps to replenish boiler water, allowing them to run indefinitely as long as sufficient fuel is available.

Here is some more information on this design. First, this Corliss model above was the original design that became what John McDivitt used to build his 3 Lane and Bodley Corliss steam engine models. All 3 of these models have had a home at one time or another here at the Office of Steam! This paragraph.. info from The Home Machinist board September 2012. The Lane & Bodley isn't such a new engine model. The original model design was done by Charles Heckel ca.1935-37 and was subsequently published in The Model Craftsman magazine in 1938-39. A new set of drawings based upon the Heckle drawings was done by Harold W. Hanson in 1953, and a full set of new patterns was made by Harold Judson and those eventually made their way to the Live Steam Pattern Pool. The entire construction article by Charles Heckel, with new drawings, was published in Live Steam magazine beginning in 1991. In the late 1980s the patterns were drawn from the LSPP and sent to a foundry (in Mich IIRC) where castings sets in red brass were poured to order and available for a time. Also at that time an iron foundry willing to take the orders could not be found. IIRC the price for the set in red brass was $225/ppd. I'm told the timing of this was such that the patterns escaped the LSPP fire (the pattern pool fire). by gwrdriver In my earlier visits to the NAMES show 2001-2003 had heard about this pattern pool and the fire. The Pattern Pool was a sort of bank where many important sets of scale model engine patterns were stored together as a co-operative effort by and for the model engineering community. A model engineer could take sets of patterns out on loan to a foundry to have some castings poured and then return them to the Live Steam Pattern Pool. While the patterns for the Lane and Bodley Corliss were out at a foundry at the time, quite sadly, the pattern pool caught fire and all the rest of the patterns present at the time went up in smoke. It was devastating.

Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ A Corliss steam engine (or Corliss engine) is a steam engine, fitted with rotary valves and with variable valve timing patented in 1849, invented by and named after the American engineer George Henry Corliss of Providence, Rhode Island. Engines fitted with Corliss valve gear offered the best thermal efficiency of any type of stationary steam engine until the refinement of the uniflow steam engine and steam turbine in the 20th century. Corliss engines were generally about 30 percent more fuel efficient than conventional steam engines with fixed cutoff. This increased efficiency made steam power more economical than water power, allowing industrial development away from millponds. Corliss engines were typically used as stationary engines to provide mechanical power to line shafting in factories and mills and to drive dynamos to generate electricity. Many were quite large, standing many metres tall and developing several hundred horsepower, albeit at low speed, turning massive flywheels weighing several tons at about 100 revolutions per minute. Some of these engines have unusual roles as mechanical legacy systems and because of their relatively high efficiency and low maintenance requirements, some remain in service into the early 21st century. See, for example, the engines at the Hook Norton Brewery and the Distillerie Dillon in the list of operational engines.

Clishay Live Steam Logging Locomotive I have owned this 7-1/2 gauge Clishay logging locomotive for about seven years and it has always run very well. The overall dimensions of the locomotive are 44" long x 12" wide x 38" to the top of the stack. Features include a Worthington steam pump, 2 pop-off valves set at 100 lbs and an excellent working injector. The boiler runs very well with wood or coal. Other working parts on this locomotive are a steam whistle, head light, brass bell, forward and reverse gears, manual hand-operated brakes and a stack blower. The tender dimensions are 36" long x 12" wide and 16' high. Bob Maynard wrote articles for Live Steam Magazine and originated the Clishay project in 1977. The name "Clishay" comes from combining Climax and Shay. He drew up the plans, wrote the articles and built a locomotive, all of which took about a year. This locomotive was completed about ten years ago using Bob Maynard's plans.

I predicted that steam operation, big and small, would become a thing of the past within a few decades. The only way to reverse this trend, is for a huge percentage of the younger generations and companies with big bucks to take a strong interest in keeping steam alive, sponsorships, advertising, insurance, etc. Future generations will most likely not even know, or care about the experience of seeing an operating steam locomotive :( Please feel free to like comment, and share this video.

July 20, 1893 The story of Peter Rigosi which inspired the lyrics the "Locomotive" The complete article is: www.archiviopinelli.it bollettino 20 THE STEAM ENGINE I don't know what he looked like, not even what was his name, the way he used to talk, the way he used to sing, how old he was then, the color of his hair, but in my fantasy I carry his image, heroes are all young and handsome. However, I know the time of the events, what was his occupation: the first years of the century, engine driver, railwayman, the time when the holy war of the underdogs was starting off, the train itself looked like a myth of progress flung over the continents. And the locomotive looked like a strange monster that man dominated with his thought and his hand, it covered distances that seemed infinite with a roar it seemed to have a tremendous power inside, the same power of dynamite. Another powerful force was then also spreading its wings, words saying "men are all equal", and against kings and tyrants, in the street the proletarian bomb exploded, and the air was lit by the torch of anarchy. A train used to pass every day by his station, a luxury train, with a far-off destination, he used to see revered people, think of those velvets and jewellery, think of the meagre day of his people around him, think of a train full of lords. I don't know what happened, why he took the decision, perhaps an old rage, nameless generations that cried out for vengeance, blinded his heart, he forgot pity, he forgot his goodness, the steam engine was his bomb. The locomotive was standing on the track, the throbbing engine looked like a living being it looked like a young colt just let off the bit, biting the rail with steel muscles, with blind force of lightning. On a day like any other, perhaps just angrier than before, he thought he had a chance to rectify some wrongs, he mounted the sleeping monster, he tried to get rid of his fear and before he thought about what he was doing, the monster was devouring the plain. The other train was running unaware, as if in no hurry nobody imagined to be going towards a revenge but at the Bologna station the news arrived in a flash: emergency bulletin, act urgently, a madman threw himself against the train. Meanwhile the locomotive runs runs runs and the steam whistles, it looks like a living being and the whistle spreading in the air seems to tell to the stooping peasants: brother don't be afraid, as I am running to my duty, may the proletarian justice triumph. Meanwhile it runs runs runs faster and faster and runs runs runs runs towards death and nothing can now hold back that immense destructive force he only awaits the crash, then let the great consoler's mantle come. History tells us how the run ended up, the engine switched to a dead-end track, with its last animal cry the engine erupted lapilli and lava, exploded against the sky, then the smoke drew its veil, when they picked him up he was still breathing. However, we like to imagine him still at his seat, driving away his steam engine, and may we one day receive again the news of a locomotive like a living being, thrown like a bomb against injustice. in other languages: http://www.prato.linux.it/~lmasetti/antiwarsongs/canzone.php?id=1557&lang=it English 1 English 2 French German Spanish Greek Esperanto 1 Esperanto 2 Rovigo Dialect Korean - Livorno Dialect

From Englishman Thomas Newcomen's atmospheric engine, of 1712, through major developments by Scottish inventor and mechanical engineer James Watt, the steam engine began to be used in many industrial settings, not just in mining, where the first engines had been used to pump water from deep workings. Early mills had run successfully with water power, but by using a steam engine a factory could be located anywhere, not just close to water. Water power varied with the seasons and was not always available. In 1775 Watt formed an engine-building and engineering partnership with manufacturer Matthew Boulton. The partnership of Boulton & Watt became one of the most important businesses of the Industrial Revolution and served as a kind of creative technical centre for much of the British economy. The partners solved technical problems and spread the solutions to other companies. Similar firms did the same thing in other industries and were especially important in the machine tool industry. These interactions between companies were important because they reduced the amount of research time and expense that each business had to spend working with its own resources. The technological advances of the Industrial Revolution happened more quickly because firms often shared information, which they then could use to create new techniques or products. From mines to mills, steam engines found many uses in a variety of industries. The introduction of steam engines improved productivity and technology, and allowed the creation of smaller and better engines. After Richard Trevithick's development of the high-pressure engine, transport-applications became possible, and steam engines found their way into boats, railways, farms and road vehicles. Steam engines are an example of how changes brought by industrialization led to even more changes in other areas. The development of the stationary steam engine was a very important early element of the Industrial Revolution. However, it should be remembered that for most of the period of the Industrial Revolution, the majority of industries still relied on wind and water power as well as horse and man-power for driving small machines.

What is SUPERHEATED STEAM? What does SUPERHEATED STEAM mean? SUPERHEATED STEAM meaning - SUPERHEATED STEAM definition - SUPERHEATED STEAM explanation.

Superheated steam is a steam at a temperature higher than its vaporization (boiling) point at the absolute pressure where the temperature is measured. The steam can therefore cool (lose internal energy) by some amount, resulting in a lowering of its temperature without changing state (i.e., condensing) from a gas, to a mixture of saturated vapor and liquid. If unsaturated steam (a mixture which contain both water vapor and liquid water droplets) is heated at constant pressure, its temperature will also remain constant as the vapor quality (think dryness, or percent saturated vapor) increases towards 100%, and becomes dry (i.e., no saturated liquid) saturated steam. Continued heat input will then "super" heat the dry saturated steam. This will occur if saturated steam contacts a surface with a higher temperature. Superheated steam and liquid water cannot coexist under thermodynamic equilibrium, as any additional heat simply evaporates more water and the steam will become saturated steam. However this restriction may be violated temporarily in dynamic (non-equilibrium) situations. To produce superheated steam in a power plant or for processes (such as drying paper) the saturated steam drawn from a boiler is passed through a separate heating device (a superheater) which transfers additional heat to the steam by contact or by radiation. Superheated steam is not suitable for sterilization. This is because the superheated steam is dry. Dry steam must reach much higher temperatures and the materials exposed for a longer time period to have the same effectiveness; or equal F0 kill value. Superheated steam is also not useful for heating. Saturated steam has a much higher wall heat transfer coefficient. Slightly superheated steam may be used for antimicrobial disinfection of biofilms on hard surfaces. Superheated steam’s greatest value lies in its tremendous internal energy that can be used for kinetic reaction through mechanical expansion against turbine blades and reciprocating pistons, that produces rotary motion of a shaft. The value of superheated steam in these applications is its ability to release tremendous quantities of internal energy yet remain above the condensation temperature of water vapor; at the pressures at which reaction turbines and reciprocating piston engines operate. Of prime importance in these applications is the fact that water vapor containing entrained liquid droplets is generally incompressible at those pressures. If steam doing work in a reciprocating engine or turbine, cools to a temperature at which liquid droplets form; the water droplets entrained in the fluid flow will strike the mechanical parts of engines or turbines, with enough force to bend, crack or fracture them. Superheating and pressure reduction through expansion ensures that the steam flow remains as a compressible gas throughout its passage through a turbine or an engine, preventing damage of the internal moving parts. Superheated steam was widely used in main line steam locomotives. Saturated steam has three main disadvantages in a steam engine: it contains small droplets of water which have to be periodically drained from the cylinders; being precisely at the boiling point of water for the boiler pressure in use, it inevitably condenses to some extent in the steam pipes and cylinders outside the boiler, causing a disproportionate loss of steam volume as it does so; and it places a heavy demand on the boiler. Superheating the steam dries it effectively, raises its temperature to a point where condensation is much less likely and increases its volume significantly. Added together, these factors increase the power and economy of the locomotive. The main disadvantages are the added complexity and cost of the superheater tubing and the adverse effect that the "dry" steam has on lubrication of moving components such as the steam valves. Shunting locomotives did not generally use superheating....

Ruston Proctor No 28492 Lincoln England This is a Ruston special single cylinder portable steam engine (Colonial Type Class PSC). Found in March 1997, fully restored to working order in 1999. See the full article at www.classicmachinery.com.au Thanks to the Machinery Preservation Club of WA for the interview. It had been manufactured in 1904 in Lincoln, England, and had been shipped to Greenough Western Australia in that year. After working at Greenough for five years the engine had been purchased by the O'Brian family and towed by a team of work horses to Devils Creek near Mullewa, 120 km east of Geraldton. Three O'Brian brothers shared the engine, all with their own farms in close proximity to one another. The engine worked between the three Mullewa properties until the early 1950's driving a chaff cutter. During the last 40 years the engine had been sold for scrap on two occasions for £14 Australian. In the 1960's and 70's scrap merchants combed the country for scrap cast iron and brass. They traveled the country with sticks of gelignite and blew apart many beautiful old machines just for the price of a few pounds. Luckily the scrap merchants who came to Mullewa found it too hard to remove the engine from the property so it remained intact. In April, six weeks after the first sighting, Peter Dymond organised the recovery team. The team was made up of Peter Ogborne, Andrew Dymond, Ian Studham, John O'Brian (the eavesdropper in the hardware shop) with his grandsons. Transport was supplied by Bruce Cleasby with his vintage Albion 7 ton truck. full story here http://www.steamengine.com.au/index.php/restoration/41-rustport

What is FIRELESS LOCOMOTIVE? What does FIRELESS LOCOMOTIVE mean? FIRELESS LOCOMOTIVE meaning - FIRELESS LOCOMOTIVE definition - FIRELESS LOCOMOTIVE explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. A fireless locomotive is a type of locomotive which uses reciprocating engines powered from a reservoir of compressed air or steam, which is filled at intervals from an external source. They offer advantages over conventional steam locomotives of lower cost per unit, cleanliness, and decreased risk from fire or boiler explosion; these are counterbalanced by the need for a source to refill the locomotive, and by the limited range afforded by the reservoir. Typical usage was in industrial switching where a conventional locomotive was too noxious or risky, such as in a mine or a food or chemical factory; they also saw use where the source of air or steam was readily available. They were eventually displaced by Diesel and battery electric locomotives fitted with protective appliances; these are described as Flame-proof locomotives. Steam traction became unfashionable in the 1940s and was largely replaced by diesel or electric traction. However, fireless steam has its merits, especially where there is an abundant cheap source of steam, such as in industrial sites, at thermal power stations or refuse incineration plants, where fireless steam locomotives are used for shunting at very low cost. As they do not emit any exhaust except steam, they can shunt into buildings without endangering the workforce with noxious fumes. Considering that shunting locomotives are typically working for only about 10% of the time, 90% waiting for work; a diesel locomotive, idling most of the time, burns too much fuel producing nothing. A well insulated modern steam accumulator can preserve pressure over many hours. Thus the operating cost of a fireless steam shunter can be far less than that of a comparable diesel. Fireless locomotives are also safer to operate than conventional steam locomotives, aside from the elimination of ignition hazards. The primary cause of a locomotive boiler explosion is the depletion of boiler water, through inattention or excessive use, exposing the crown sheet directly to the flames of the firebox, weakening it to the point of failure. A fireless locomotive eliminates this danger—if it runs out of sufficient water, it simply ceases to move—although precautions must be taken as with any other pressure vessel. Furthermore, they did not require careful monitoring of water levels and boiler pressure, nor careful distribution of coal in the firebox for efficient combustion, and thus could be operated by less-skilled staff, not requiring a fully qualified locomotive engineer and fireman.

Please watch: "The abandoned Eurostar" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yq14YnFOewQ --~-- "Fowler's Ghost" is the nickname given to an experimental fireless 2-4-0 steam locomotive designed by John Fowler and built in 1861 for use on the Metropolitan Railway, London's first underground railway. The broad gauge locomotive used exhaust recondensing techniques and a large quantity of fire bricks to retain heat and prevent the emission of smoke and steam in tunnels. After trials on the Great Western Railway in 1861 and in London in 1862, the locomotive was considered a failure; on its first trial it was near to exploding, and problems with steaming and pressure retention were never overcome. The locomotive was sold in 1865 with the intention to convert it into a conventional steam engine, but it was quietly scrapped in 1895. The locomotive was considered an embarrassment to its designer, the respected engineer John Fowler (who later designed the Forth Rail Bridge), and its existence was denied for many years; the sobriquet "Fowler's Ghost" was given to it by The Railway Magazine in a retrospective article in January 1901, and this has subsequently become the standard reference name for the engine. The Metropolitan Railway was designed to run through covered tunnels in railway cuttings. At a railway select committee in 1855, Fowler had stated his intention "to start with our boiler filled with steam and water to such capacity and of such pressure that it will take its journey from end-to-end." To avoid problems with smoke and steam overwhelming staff and passengers on the covered sections, Fowler proposed a unique fireless locomotive. However, early experiments with these steam accumulator locomotives had failed. The locomotive was built by Robert Stephenson and Company at their works in Newcastle upon Tyne. It was built to broad gauge specification with a 2-4-0 wheel arrangement with tender. The boiler had a normal firebox connected to a large combustion chamber containing a large quantity of fire bricks which were to act as a heat reservoir. The combustion chamber was linked to the smokebox through a set of very short firetubes. Exhaust steam was re-condensed instead of escaping and fed back to the boiler. The locomotive was intended to operate conventionally in the open, but in tunnels dampers would be closed and steam would be generated using the stored heat from the fire bricks.

https://prrt1steamlocomotivetrust.org/ - Please help fund the T-1 Trust! They are a wonderful organization, building an advanced new 4-4-4-4 T-1 steam locomotive from scratch! A follow up to my other video; "The Flying Scotsman and Mallard won't remain in the spotlight forever" There are a few steam locomotives may have beaten the speed record held by Mallard in the past, but were not properly documented. Some may not have beaten the record, but had good high speed performance nonetheless. A C&O 4-6-4 with Caprotti valve gear, The PRR 4-4-2 7002, UP 844, Milwaukee Road Hiawatha steam passenger engines, and N&W 611. Some new information has recently surfaced regarding the C&O 4-6-4: C&O never had Hudsons with Caprotti gear at all, and what they did have with poppet valves dated to the postwar era. The first poppet valve engines were class L1, Nos. 490-494, which were rebuilt from F19 4-6-2s (which carried the same road numbers) between 1945 and 1947. These engines were streamlined to handle connecting sections of the stillborn Chessie streamliner, and were shrouded except for the 494, which was the first engine to go through the rebuilding in the big shop at Huntington, W.Va. They had Franklin Type A poppet valves. The 490, the second rebuild, survives in the B&O Museum in Baltimore. The road also had Hudsons 310-314, class L2a, with Franklin Type B poppet valves, built by Baldwin in 1948--the heaviest Hudsons ever built, the last Hudsons built for an American road, possibly the last built anywhere. These were intended to be streamlined, along with the last 4-8-4s (Nos. 610-614, class J3a), but neither class got the shrouds due to cost and weight concerns. In regard to the Hiawatha steam passenger trains: In the book, "Railroading from the Head End" by S. Kip Farrington, there is a chapter on the Hiawathas, and a copy of a speed tape taken from one that shows mile after mile at 100 mph. The line had no speed limit at the time; engineers were told to run as fast as needed to make time, consistent with safety. There were some famous signs on the route that warned the engineers to "Reduce to 90" on certain curves, and the level crossing with the EJ&E at Rondout had a speed restriction of 100 mph! A Popular Mechanics Magazine article about the 6-4-4-6 S-1, allegedly one of the fastest steam locomotives ever! http://streamlinermemories.info/PRR/Gargantua.pdf I do not speak for the T-1 trust, but have donated many times in the past.

With the wind howling, the temperature only just above freezing and bright, low winter sun, this was always going to be a challenging day to shoot a video, then again the opportunity to see two lovely tank engines visiting the Mid Hampshire Railway was too good to miss. In spite of Mother Nature’s best efforts to make life difficult the day turned out well, once a fallen tree had been cleared from the line. We start out at Ropley locomotive sheds, where we watch the locomotives being prepared, ready to collect their trains. At this early hour there were not many people around, creating a real 1960’s end of steam feel to the scene. The staff and volunteers who had made the early start were busy raising steam and generally polishing the locomotives ready to be presented to an admiring public. The line was severed for bridge work near Alton, so services were cut back to Medstead and Four Marks, usually a quiet backwater, but on this occasion a hive of activity as locomotives ran round their trains ready for the run back to Ropley and Alresford. As part of this visit we also take ride on the Ropley miniature railway and watch the Guildford 0 Gauge Group running their excellent recreation of a steam shed towards the end of steam on British Railways. It turned out to be a very good day. Locomotives present at the event including the two visiting tank engines were: Great Western Railway (GWR) 57xx Class 0-6-0 Pannier Tank No.5786/L92 in London Transport maroon livery (visiting from the South Devon Railway) Southern Region (ex 30070) USA Class 0-6-0T No. 300 "Frank S Ross" in Longmoor Military Railway Lined Blue (visiting from the Kent & East Sussex Railway) British Rail (BR) Standard Class 9F 2-10-0 No.92212 (home fleet) London Midland & Scottish (LMS) Class 2MT (Mixed Traffic) 2-6-2 Tank Engine No.41312 (home fleet) British Railways (BR) Standard Class 4MT (Mixed Traffic) 2-6-0 No.76017 (home fleet) Southern Railway (SR) Schools Class 4-4-0 No.925 ‘Cheltenham’ (home fleet in light steam only) The railway is a Standard gauge (1,435 mm / 4 ft 8⁄2 in) line that was once part of a cross country route between Winchester and Alton in Southern England.

This article is about locomotives that run on rails. For the type of heavy-haulage traction engine, see Road locomotive (disambiguation). For the Russian football club, see FC Lokomotiv Moscow. For the 1960s British band, see Locomotive (band). Three body styles of diesel locomotive: cab unit, hood unit and box cab. These locomotives are operated by Pacific National in Australia. R class steam locomotive number R707 as operated by the Victorian Railways of Australia. A Green Cargo RC 4 class electric locomotive repainted in its original livery for the Swedish 150-year railway anniversary in 2006. A locomotive is a railway vehicle that provides the motive power for a train. The word originates from the Latin loco -- "from a place", ablative of locus, "place" + Medieval Latin motivus, "causing motion", and is a shortened form of the term locomotive engine, first used in the early 19th century to distinguish between mobile and stationary steam engines. A locomotive has no payload capacity of its own, and its sole purpose is to move the train along the tracks. In contrast, some trains have self-propelled payload-carrying vehicles. These are not normally considered locomotives, and may be referred to as multiple units, motor coaches or railcars. The use of these self-propelled vehicles is increasingly common for passenger trains, but rare for freight (see CargoSprinter). Vehicles which provide motive power to haul an unpowered train, but are not generally considered locomotives because they have payload space or are rarely detached from their trains, are known as power cars. Traditionally, locomotives pull trains from the front. Increasingly common is push-pull operation, where a locomotive pulls the train in one direction and pushes it in the other, and can be controlled from a control cab at the other end of the train.
