STEAM LOCOMOTIVES

THE OPERATION OF A STEAM LOCOMOTIVE

The firebox (1) contains the fire, which is essential to the operation of the locomotive. Cold water (2) is heated by the tubes (3) and turns into steam. It becomes light and accumulates in the dome (4) from where it is routed (5) in more or less quantity in the cylinders (6). The steam pushes the pistons (7) in one direction and then in the other. The latter carries with it the embalming (8) and the wheels of the machine. The chimney (9) expels exhausts composed of steam and smoke by sizing the fire. Safety valves (10) allow the rapid expulsion of excess steam if too much pressure builds up in the boiler.

ELECTRIC LOCOMOTIVES

THE OPERATION OF AN ELECTRIC LOCOMOTIVE

The so-called “electric” locomotives operate thanks to a generator (1) petrol (2). Informations from the driver’s cab are (3) processed by an automaton (4) that intern regulates the two electric motors (5) placed above the two bogies. The engines drive the axles (6) using a chain.
