 Between 1900 and 1950, Americans built the most powerful steam locomotives of all time—enormous engines that powered a colossal industry. They were deceptively simple machines, yet, the more their technology was studied, the more obscure it became. Despite immense and sustained engineering efforts, steam locomotives remained grossly inefficient in their use of increasingly costly fuel and labor. In the end, they baffled their masters and, as soon as diesel-electric technology provided an alternative, steam locomotives disappeared from American railroads. Drawing on the work of eminent engineers and railroad managers of the day, this lavishly illustrated history chronicles the challenges, triumphs and failures of American steam locomotive development and operation.

Excerpt from Railroad Electrification and the Electric Locomotive: Outline of Principles Involved in Railroad Electrification; A Comparison of Steam and Electric Locomotives; History of Electrification in United States; Data on Electrification in America, Europe and Australia The importance of electrification as a method for increasing the capacity of existing steam railway facilities and reducing the cost of train operation, makes it imperative that railway officers and operating men should have some knowledge concerning the elementary theory, the design, construction, care, and operation of electric locomotives, as well as their application to all classes of railroad service. The electric locomotive is no longer an experiment. Although in the beginning, its use on steam railroads in certain localities was practically compulsory, in order to overcome the smoke nuisance, its relation to the general transportation problem soon surpassed this state, and today, the electric locomotive stands as one of the most feasible means available for meeting the problems incident to the continually increasing traffic density as found on many American railroads. Longer and heavier trains must be handled at higher speeds and the use of electricity appears to be the logical solution of the problem. The reliability of operation of the electric locomotive, and its flexibility of control, have been proved and the advantages that may be expected from electric operation are well known. Electric locomotives are operating successfully over a length of continuous line 440 lines long and during 24 consecutive hours a single locomotive has been able to attain a mileage of 766 miles, while the monthly mileage has reached the high figure of more than 12,000 miles. The economy in fuel consumption per unit of power delivered at the drawbar will become of increasing importance as available fuel resources decrease.
