4-12-2
Under the Whyte notation
Whyte notation
for the classification of steam locomotives, 4-12-2
4-12-2
represents the wheel arrangement of four leading wheels, twelve coupled driving wheels, and two trailing wheels. This arrangement was named the Union Pacific type, after the only railroad to use it. Other equivalent classifications are: AAR wheel arrangement: 2-F-1 UIC classification: 2′F1′ (also known as German classification and Italian classification) French classification: 261 Turkish classification: 69 Swiss classification: 6/9 Only one type of 4-12-2

Baldwin 60000
Baldwin 60000
Baldwin 60000
is an experimental steam locomotive built by the Baldwin Locomotive Works in Eddystone, Pennsylvania
Eddystone, Pennsylvania
in 1926, during the height of the railroading industry. It received its number for being the 60,000th locomotive built by Baldwin.[1] It was designed to be the best locomotive that Baldwin ever made. It boasts three cylinders, weighs about 350 short tons (318 t; 313 long tons), including tender, and can pull a load of up to 7,000 short tons (6,400 t; 6,200 long tons). Its top speed is 70 mph (110 km/h).[citation needed] 60000 was very innovative, carrying unusual technology, including a water-tube firebox. This was intended to improve efficiency but the tubes were prone to burst inside the firebox. It is also a compound, expanding the steam once in the inside cylinder and then again in the two outside cylinders

Blind Driver
On a steam locomotive, a driving wheel is a powered wheel which is driven by the locomotive's pistons (or turbine, in the case of a steam turbine locomotive).[1] On a conventional, non-articulated locomotive, the driving wheels are all coupled together with side rods (also known as coupling rods); normally one pair is directly driven by the main rod (or connecting rod) which is connected to the end of the piston rod; power is transmitted to the others through the side rods.[2][3][4] On diesel and electric locomotives, the driving wheels may be directly driven by the traction motors. Coupling rods are not usually used, and it is quite common for each axle to have its own motor. Jackshaft drive and coupling rods were used in the past[5][6] (e.g

Lateral Motion Device
A lateral motion device is a mechanism used in some railroad locomotives which permits the axles to move sideways relative to the frame. The device facilitates cornering.Contents1 Purpose 2 Variations 3 See also 4 ReferencesPurpose[edit] The coupled driving wheels on steam locomotives (often simply called "drivers") were held in a straight line by the locomotive's frame. The flanges of the drivers were spaced a bit closer than the rail gauge, and they could still fit between the rails when tracking through a mild curve. At some degree of curvature, though, the flanges on the center driver would begin to bind in the curve. The farther apart the front and rear drivers were, the smaller the radius of curve that the locomotive could negotiate. One solution was to make the center driver(s) "blind," i.e

Turkish Classification
In the Turkish classification system for railway locomotives, the number of powered axles are followed by the total number of axles. It is identical to the Swiss system except that the latter places a slash between the two numbers. Thus 0-6-0

4-6-2

Locomotive
A locomotive or engine is a rail transport vehicle that provides the motive power for a train. If a locomotive is capable of carrying a payload, it is usually rather referred to as multiple units, motor coaches, railcars or power cars; the use of these self-propelled vehicles is increasingly common for passenger trains, but rare for freight (see CargoSprinter). Traditionally, locomotives pulled trains from the front
