Locomotive Written and Illustrated by Brian Floca Publisher's Summary: It is the summer of , and trains, crews, and family are traveling together, riding America’s brand-new transcontinental railroad. These pages come alive with the details of the trip and the sounds, speed, and strength of the mighty locomotives; the work that keeps them moving; and. John Knowles. Steam loccomotive resistance and information on its values. Locomotive resistance (LR) is the sum of the several sources of friction imposed by the running of the locomotive, as a vehicle and as a machine, or what is lost of the work done in the cylinders to achieve the work done at the drawbar.
Locomotive, any of various self-propelled vehicles used for hauling railroad cars on tracks.. Although motive power for a train-set can be incorporated into a car that also has passenger, baggage, or freight accommodations, it most often is provided by a separate unit, the locomotive, which includes the machinery to generate (or, in the case of an electric locomotive, to convert) power and.

The first section of this chapter analyzes the formation of locomotive or EMU tractive effort, train running resistance, and braking pressure.
The second section discusses the mathematical relations between acceleration (deceleration) and resultant force while three different forces are acting on a train; this is the train motion equation.

Though the first locomotive to operate on an American railroad was the Stourbridge Lion, built in and imported from England by Horatio Allen of New York, the British locomotives did not come to dominate American railways because they were too heavy for the relatively light and often uneven American tracks.
