The Magic of Steam Train

The magic of the steam train: The steam train to depart will be like a volcano ready to explode at any time. Vapors sprout from the top, from the bottom, from the sides. Continuously hisses:

Hiss, hiss, hiss ...

The roaring grunt is a grunt.

The first time you start to move the steam containers on each side of the earth and the sky becomes almost invisible. It floats on the clouds.

Finally the giant moves, heavy. It's progressing. When it accelerates a little bit of steam, it begins to move:
Chuuff, chuuff …… Chuuff, chuuff
Chuuff, Chuuff… .. Chuuff, Chuuff
Then it accelerates:
Choo, Choo… Choo, Choo
Choo, Choo ... Choo, Choo
As in this video

A powerful and high-pitched whistle for Vee and steam trains. It's long.
It makes the night, the day, the plains, the mountains groan and ring… It can be heard from miles away.
Watching a steam train is pleasant and beautiful.
It's a magical atmosphere.
For many years to go, drags to a completely different world

Nostalgic to this event, for those who are new to the steam train, a short journey is beautiful.
Let me give some more information - to those who are interested - to get to know the steam train and its locomotive:

Trains are often referred to by the names of the energy types of the locomotive that attract them. Trains drawn by steam locomotives BUHARLI TRAIN, trains drawn by electric locomotives ELECTRIC TRAIN, trains driven by fuel-driven locomotives are named as DIESELLI and MOTOR TRAINS.

Steam locomotives; In the early years of train technology, they were the first vehicles to pull trains - if we do not take into account the first railway vehicles to be pulled by horse. It is the most primitive type of locomotive in the 1800's. However, it continued its sovereignty in our country and some parts of the world until the 1980s and remained on the agenda. I still have no idea if it is used in some countries today.

Currently, some types of steam locomotives are displayed as antiques to refresh nostalgia in open-air railway museums on rail routes and at some stations and stations.
The energy of the Steam Train is solid fuel and water. In the first years, wood was used as fuel, then it switched to coal and steam trains continued until it disappeared.

Steam locomotive consists of two parts. In the front is the section where the boiler and steam are produced and the locomotive is controlled, and behind that the section called "tender" where the fuel is stored. The connection of the two sections is not fixed, but mobile. The mechanic and his assistant "Fireman" and the unit where the locomotive is shipped are controlled, above and in the middle of this joint where the locomotive joins the tender.

The machinist manages and manages the train, the fireman constantly throws coal into the boiler at short intervals in order to keep the boiler constantly active and at high temperature and to produce steam. It is necessary to throw the coal more frequently and to warm up the fire of the boiler to increase the speed and keep the boiler more dynamic in order to climb the ramp, that is, the hill. Meanwhile, the grate is moved with tongs to remove the burnt coal residue from the ashes of the boiler. The dynamism of the combustion is maintained by ensuring that the boiler receives oxygen from the bottom. While it is forbidden to pour ash while on the move, in some cases the mechanic is helpless, poking through the grate, throwing ash, and the fires falling from the grills with ash from the bottom burn the wooden sleepers - if any - under the rails of the road. During the hot July and August months of the year, it is checked after the steam train passes that many sleepers of the road are burned. These transverses should be renewed as soon as possible.

The facilities that have special equipment to supply water to the locomotive and the pit sections that will pour ash and burned coals are the essential necessities of steam trains.
The fire of the steam locomotive never goes out, even when it is not working, it is necessary to keep the "boiler hot" - in terms of railroad business. Until maintenance and repairs are required.
