LM039 GER Extracts from Clark's 'The Steam Engine' 1895

  • LM039  GER Extracts from Clark's 'The Steam Engine' 1895

NEW DECEMBER 2017.  This file consists of GER-related extracts from the book A Treatise on the Steam Engine written by Daniel Kinnear Clark, M.Inst.C.E., M.I.M.E.  It was published by Blackie in 1895.

The selected chapters cover Massey Bromley's 'mogul' (2-6-0) engines for the March to London coal trains; a 4-4-2 tank engine for the London, Tilbury and Southend Railway; T.W. Worsdell's inside-cylinder compound engines (his earlier GER compounds are described, followed by his more recent NER ones); and petroleum refuse and tar-burning locomotives (including Holden's apparatus). The file concludes with two addenda: an update on Worsdell's compound locomotives, and the Westinghouse brake. They are all illustrated with line drawings. The accounts of Bromley's engine and the LT&SR tank each include a pair of scale drawings - a longitudinal section, showing it in side view, and a transverse section across the frames illustrating pistons and connecting rods. 

The file is word-searchable and is supplied with bookmarks. It will be available to download as soon as payment has been made. You go to your account and click on ‘Downloads’. New customers create an account as they place their order.
