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.
Fab video. Thank you for sharing. Also, love your boots.
the engineer's don't wave from the trains anymore; not like they did back in 1954, that old caboose, that swing'in lantern; what memories, wish those guys who drove that golden spike could see'um.
That locomotive is having a lot of fuel
hola y los trenes a vapor aca en chile que na hay nada amigos como el gran san rosend
Amazing! Obviously you really need to know what you're doing to fired and operate steam locomotives.
these are not just machines, these are people like us in a way. Though more mechanical than we are. They just have a different way of talking to us.
Couldn’t watch it. The subtitles took away from it
We need a new radiator
Tipe 1 radiator ЯR
the engineer's don't wave from the trains anymore; not like they did back in 1954, go home with all those damn cellphones.
Where is located?
Superb .I never felt I was watching a video .it was like being on engine itself. Good to see narration and distracting music kept out.
Hi: this railway line is beautiful. My late wife and I have the diplomas of steam boiler operators, which legally allowed us to be firemans of steam locomotives.
My late wife operated a steam boiler with twelve burners, at a pressure of 60 or 90 bars. It was an oil refinery ..
Fuck that was a hard job shovelling coal at that rate for hours
Imagine having to shovel.
This post made by auger gang.
must have been 1 dirty job working with a steam loco with back braking work.
The other guy can’t hear if you farted
But in all honesty I love these videos and have ALWAYS DREAMED OF Running a steam locomotive of my own But sadly I dont think that long dream will ever happen
look at all deeze nuts
and bolts 🤣
no seriously, all that machining of valves and every little screw to bring together
such a mechanical masterpiece is amazing, I wonder how many parts this beast has.
Apparently the fireman is over worked in the steam engine and under worked in a diesel electric. I bet some larger steam engines required two men to do the job adequately while the diesels didn't need them at all. Didn't the later models use an Archimedes screw to transport coal from the tender to the firebox?
