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.
I've not heard of uk steam locos throwing Cinder's. Is it the coal or do uk steam locos just fire and burn better?
I found this after watching Thomas and friends
Ok honest question, why are Americans so terrified of fire? I mean in the uk we have a massive amount of preserved steam locos and yet we never have this fear of starting a fire, not even in the summer when there’s been a drought, then we just reduce speed.
Such beautiful scenes
Meanwhile,me in modded minecraft: I PUT THE LAVA IN THE BOILER,WHY ISN'T THIS THING STARTING REEEEEEEEEEE

Great job on your video
My Pap worked on the railroad his entire life. I have his badge given to him the day he made "Engineer". After watching this young man shoveling coal into the firebox I can understand why he was so motivated to get engineer qualified! WOW, LOTS OF HARD WORK! 👍
Is there any British enthusiasts who think this firing is just weird, very all over the place and careless
This is insane compared to the mickey mouse railroads of today.
Very nice video I wondered if coal locomotives still were able to be in use with the fire danger, and amount of smoke they produce. I could not imagine what guy felt like after all day shoveling coal, and how hot it was in the summer.
the guy shoveling that coal is going to be crippled with back problems by the time he hits 40...0r before.
Why do the doors to the firebox constantly open and close? Won’t that put a lot of wear and tear on the hinges?
They’re rugged but not really pretty
Oh how I wish I could work on one of those beasts!
I like steam things, but actually just clicked on your video to get a better look at that "Fireman" that is shown in the directory.
Long time insta follower - very well done. That shot of the firebox (and actually being able to make out the cinders) is nuts!
king🤴coal? I get it! King 🤴 coal! coal sounds similar to the name Cole.
Awesome! Watching is def easier than shoveling though. I fire sugar into my tea like that however! :)
