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.
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.
So there’s two trains out in the video so there’s 484,487,488 showing in the video but where’s 463 and 489
No music, no talking... Just the sound of the heartbeat and breathing of the magnificent machine..
Such great scenery! Love it ... thanks!!!!
If you would do more videos frequently, you could hit 1M subs.

A trip to do at least once in your life when you live in another continent. Real railway. We have the privilege of traveling in the cabin here. The explanations given are very useful even when one knows the technology of the machine. Thank you for this excellent video.
Un voyage à faire au moins une fois dans une vie quand on habite un autre continent . Le vrai chemin de fer . Nous avons ici le privilège de voyager dans la cabine . Les explications données sont très utiles même lorsque l’on connaît la technologie de la machine. Merci pour cette excellente vidéo.
wanna hear something really scary?
I get recommended this video, and the previous one about the 491, after a long while of not watching anything remotely related to steam engines, JUST THE DAY AFTER watching the movie "The Lone Ranger", which features a train chase.
........and I didn't watch it on youtube.
It's so so cute to see the mini train fire car drive behind the monstrosity. Amazing work btw bro you earned a new supporter!🙏
Great vids... how many gallons of water per hour are used and how many cubic yards of coal? Thanks
My Uncle Earl was a Conductor for the Illinois Central, from 1936 to 1976 - Primarily based out of Freeport, IL. He started out in Freight Service, but migrated over to Passenger Service his last few years, under Amtrak, before finally retiring with 40 years of service. He had many interesting stories. Ah, the days of cabooses, before FRED came along.
Wow compation mean tricky
i have a question. i am in the process of modeling a steam locomotive, and am curious how the floor plate that covers the space between the engine and the coal car moves when the engine is going around a curve. in this video, it seems like it is fixed in place
Man, I just love this channel.
One of the better video I ever seen on steam, would like to know what lever does and why kinda thing like the video
