ROFL you need to get into reality steam trains started in the UK, not the USA so no point in mentioning America at all the UK is where the history is Thumbs down for poorly researched information

Dindo Nuffin It's a video about American steam locomotives. The title says it. So why do you have a problem understanding that?

The English are the only people who have built a working, fully functional engine today. All other engines are salvaged and restored, save one (844). Why can't the USA take the time and resources to restore the engines that sit rotting in "Museums" . What good are those machines sitting there, silent, cold and slowly dieing of neglect. They are NOT the magnificent engines of yesteryear thundering down the high iron moving the products of inventive Americans. They are cold, dead, dying a slow death. waiting to hear the hiss of the cutter's torch. Kids today will never know the sound or the one of these doing the work it did so well those many years ago.

2:57 Scrapyard normally isn't used in American English, but the mere fact that the narrator said so makes it nice to know he's using British terms instead of "Junkyard" like us Americans. 11:17 It's Sir Topham Hat in real life.

See. They say those early 4-4-0s had only 50 hp. But they had a boatload of torque.

The railway is an English invention -The tracks, train, engine and railways were all invented and set up by English people (Richard Trevithick invented the steam engine used in Locomotives (James watt played no part in the railway)) Steam engine - Thomas Newcomen Steam locomotive - Richard Trevithick First practical steam locomotive - John Blenkinsop Railway tracks - (Iron) John Birkinshaw - (Steel) Robert Mushet Stockton and Darlington Railway - First public railway

NOT the history of anything except even more american propaganda.

Howard Xing in terms of emissions control and improved technology yes but in terms of raw tractive effort and power, steam is king

I've been looking for this documentary since I was like 5 I'm 18 the search was tough but I intend to thourouly enjoy this wonderful documentary
Ashame most kids don't know this.I've loved trains 🚂 since I was 3 years old and know I'm 14 gonna be 15 in a few months
Dwight Miller (1 year ago)
they need to bring them back hell with the diesel engines
Stephen (1 year ago)
Yeah, they are cool and remind us a more romantic age of train travel. Unfortunately, real steam powered train engines, are by today's standards, slow and inefficient, not to mention dirty and loud. Add to that the necessity to have the infrastructure to supply coal and water to the engines at regular intervals. The U.S. passenger rail system has fallen seriously behind in terms of coverage and speed. Our fastest trains travel a fraction of the speed of those in France, Japan, and China. Now that I've gone seriously off-topic, let me apologize to everyone and shut-up.

They don't run on steam, they run on wood, coal, dung, whatever. Even at their best, they were inefficient beyond the extreme. BUT... they do look cool doing it. However, everything cool about steam engines in trains is made trivial by their use in ships and stationary power for mills. Those applications made, and still do make, trains look trivial by comparison. But, let's not diss steam too much. All nuclear systems use steam technology, including aircraft carriers and submarines. Nuclear trains, anyone?
James Shanks (1 month ago)
We have nuclear powered locomotive's today, the electric locomotives. No one will build a nuclear powered locomotive where the nuclear power is on the locomotive because of the potential for accidents.
Travis Houck (2 years ago)
I once heard that someone made a Nuclear car back in the 60s or 70s.

I'm a huge fan of Steam Engines they run on coal and water the fireman puts coal in the steam engines then the boiler makes hot water steam rises to the steam Dom then travels into a piston called the piston it's turns the the wheels backward and frontward that's how run

cvsrrailfan, from now on, you're my Best YouTube Friend For Life, Because: I Love Steam Locomotives So Much. and I want to be a Steam Locomotive Engineer when I turn 30-Years-Old. After All, I am a 20-Year-Old Male Adult on My Last 3 Months of School. So I'm Almost Free Until June 2016.
Steam engines were to make it easier to get water out of coal mines. Steam engines were successful when each part was the exact same. This is all nonsense.
No real history start - all museum history only.

In France they use axles for the wheel arrangement so a 4-4-0 would be classified as a 2-2-0 in France.

If you mean the outside of the cylinder, nothing !! There is a jacket over the real cylinder's outer wall. The shiney black metal is the jacket...It'd just be warm....

:( RIP Hutchinson and Patterson. You will forever be remembered. 
I wish my hometown of Oneonta, New York which is 1 hour and 50 minutes away from Scranton, Pennsylvania and had the largest roundhouse in the world and many old Railroad Shops and now only one building left and no museum to remember the Steam Locomotives. When I was little I wished Thomas The Tank Engine would come save Oneonta.

The steam locomotive is the eighth wonder of the world. What a beautiful invention. Without the steam locomotive half of what we have in America and Europe would not be available.
