About: How To Fire a Full-Size Coal-Burning Steam Locomotive [4K]
I opted to write subtitles instead of narrate this video so that those who wish to view the video with only the natural sounds of the steam locomotive may do so without any background music or voices playing over them. Many people watch my videos just for the actual video clips and not for the information; I figured adding the subtitles is a less intrusive way to achieve a happy medium, as well as to provide the spelling of railroad terms that some may wish to do further research on.
As always, thank you for watching and more to come soon.
Love the video dude but what
I found a bit funny was the
way you subtitled the video for
us folks to understand what
you are doing as a fireman.
Nevertheless cool video man. Thanks for sharing
Nice video, but how come no lifting of the safety valves in a tunnel?
Also, check out the The NSB Class 49, nicknamed Dovregubben ("the Dovre Giant"). Those gave the German engineers of Krupp a shock, because the power the Norwegian Engineers managed to tease out of it. They could just not comprehend that it was possible to do that with such a light locomotive. It was very advanced for it's time, used a welded frame instead of the usual riveted. Sadly,just one exists. I don't know if it ever will be restored to running condition.
An old steam-whistle of days long passed... ( 1:54
) !! Music to my ears !!
Great 25 minute video watching someone shovel coal.
That picture you have in your Thumbnail when you click on this video is a classic and needs to be blown up and put in a Museum or sold! I'd marry that man in a minute.
When is the next video coming out?
Great video! No banjos! No music! No talking! Just natural sounds! And great information! Keep it up!
The mummies thing is just a myth
Cool vid man I’m a train driver my self
itz töLtex. dänG -.-
what a waiste coal is excellent for heating your hausse instead of storync / movync tonnes off wood which would have to regrow (could ^^) or so smelt iron. but i guess it just wöRX ^^
ah the ´shalebridge . . . ^ ^
i admit (as lövv tec asidis?) för even di$zell youd need Rephynecement vv
Thank you for such a great insight into the workings of a steam train. I had no idea it's such a complicated and involved process. Youve really got your work cut out. Wow, such a beautiful beast that train is too. Looks like the gates of hell are opening each time you feed the coal in. Awesome thank you.
my grand dad worked for the rail road decades ago he said when it came to the steam locamotives THANK GOD FOR AUTOMATIC COAL FEAD
So how many miles roughly does a train like this get on a full thing of coal ?
Steam is indeed rugged—
Look at the big boys!
All good information but none of this explains how to actually fire it up?
Why not just put an oil or NG burner in the firebox, and put the tank in the coal wagon? Then you get the same steam function, but it would be a LOT cleaner.
