By the end of the 19th century, the steam locomotive was the most prominent and glamorous symbol of industrial modernism. This review of its history and operation was first published in 1897 and deals in the first part with the earliest locomotive designs, explaining the basic technology and outlining the improvements that gradually refined it, and in the second part with how a contemporary engine works, with diagrams and photographs.
