Stoker Fired Locomotives

Stoker Fired Locomotives

Ref: Ted17

An original copy of The Locomotive Stoker Company's catalog 14-D from June, 1926 promoting their products; the Street, the Elvin and the Duplex stokers. Covers these first generation loco stokers which proved to the industry the value of mechanical firing. Begins with great photos and air brushed drawings of the various types of stoker equipment and their installation. It's interesting how complex they were, especially the Street. There are then hundreds of examples of locos so equipped showing a photo and technical data of each. Many American railroads are represented shown in alphabetical order. Examples include 2-8-0's, 2-8-2's, 2-10-2's, 4-8-2's, and various mallet and simple articulated locos. Of special interest are foldouts for each section of loco types in a spreadsheet form showing condensed technical data. There is even an "Official United States Stoker Map".

Very nice embossed leatherette cover and screw post binding. Binding is tight. Cover shows light bumps, lightly work corners and shop wear. A previous owners' name is embossed in gold on the cover. Interior title page is soiled but the rest of pages are bright and clear. It's fascinating to compare data of all the various locos - great bathroom reading.

6"x9" horizontal, 1¼" thick. The pages are unnumbered, but there about 375 of them. A very nice copy of a scarce catalog.
