An action-packed profile of the mighty steam trains that once ruled the tracks. Nov 13, PM. Yuri Lomonosov was a Russian train engineer who played a major role in building the Russian railroad system. After the revolution, he went abroad to Berlin to run a program that spent a third of the Russian gold reserve to buy hundreds of locomotives in Germany and Sweden to restore transportation.

It also bought ships to deliver them. At the same time, he developed the first running diesel locomotive.

Although the last main-line steam service was operated by British Rail in , there is still immense interest in steam traction, as demonstrated by the increasing numbers of privately renovated and preserved locomotives and heritage railways around the world.

In How Steam Locomotives Really Work, the authors, both railway experts, cover the design of locomotives, the many processes in the conversion of fuel to tractive effort, the dynamic characteristics of the locomotive as a vehicle, the braking equipment, and a host of other systems, major and minor, that make up a working locomotive.

They also explain the reasons for running and maintenance practices. Their explanations will fascinate enthusiasts, whether practical or armchair. Steam locomotive design may have started in the United Kingdom, but it quickly developed parallel and sometimes diverging techniques in other countries, leading to many distinct developments that contribute to the national characteristics of some locomotives.
