  • Torque
  • For those of you who do not know, a reciprocating steam engine makes maximum torque at stall.

    Accordingly, starting a heavy consist with a steam locomotive was and remains a bit of an art. Low throttle and lots of sand....

    Story is that greenies greased the rails not far from the exit from the tunnel.

    Great stack talk!
