By 1960 steam locomotives had all but disappeared from North America's railroads, but more than three decades later they are still among the most fascinating machines ever devised. Among railroad enthusiasts steam remains the number one topic of interest, and the general public still equates railroading with steam locomotives. Why? What lay behind the romance? Steam locomotives were the machinery of transportation, the first industrial technology that was visible to every-one. Who built them? Why did railroads have so many kinds of steam locomotives−and why did locomotives differ so greatly from railroad to rail-road? What did all the parts and plumbing do? This book answers those questions and many oth-ers. It is a compact, one-volume reference book covering the development of steam locomotives in the United States, Canada, and Mexico during the 20th century.
