Re: Geared Steam Locomotives

There was a brief bit view of one recently on one of the Portillo programs in the US. It caught my attention as despite having grown up at the end of steam here in the UK, I’d never seen anything like it. Got to see one, albeit not running, on Vancouver Island last June at Port Alberni. It possibly ran during their summer which is only July and August. I was intrigued by the fact that the boiler was off centre to allow for the motion and gearing.
