In the past, steam engines were used to power trains; today, the majority of trains we see are powered by diesel and electricity. The oldest railways in the world didn’t use locomotives; instead, they used people and horses to drive carts along iron rails or wooden planks. This was not only a challenging undertaking, but it was also time-consuming and ᴅᴀɴɢᴇʀᴏᴜs.
When the steam engine was created, both issues were solved. Numerous discoveries and research projects led to the usage of steam as a locomotive.
The steam train is a wonderful, complex invention with many moving parts. The most important components of a steam train are the boiler, steam engine, steam regulator, running gear (brakes, wheels, and axles boxes), locomotive chassis, cylinder, and piston.
The boiler generates hot steam that expands under pressure to power a steam engine. A portion of this heat energy powers the engine while the remaining heat is allowed to escape. The performance is best when the heat supply is guaranteed by using a low condenser temperature and a high boiler pressure.
