C. signal mains, one phase being run in each direction from the sub-station. At the end of each block section a step-down transformer, with two secondary coils, delivers current at about 12 volts for the track circuit and 50 and two dwarfs. The machine at Sixty-eighth street will control four switches, 13 signals and six dwarfs. We are indebted to Mr. William S. Twining, Chief Engineer of the Philadelphia Rapid Transit Co., for the information. Records of Fast Runs. The full page table of fast and unusual runs of steam locomotives published herewith is of the nature of an index to records which have been published in the Railroad Gazette during the past 26 years. It is a condensation and revision of the tables published in the issues of June 11, 1897; January 11, 1901, and December 15, 1905. The table of 1897 was published in Modern Locomotives and the table as now revised appears on page 98 of the Locomotive Dictionary, which has just been published by the Railroad Gazette. In the table the time given is in each case that from the beginning to the end of the run, including stops. The improvement which has been made in locomotive service since 1895 is shown not so much in higher speeds per se as in the heavier trains now hauled without diminution of speed, and at sustained speeds for long distances. Concerning certain runs which appear in the table, the following notes will be found of interest: March 1, 1901.--Grade descending, mostly at 30 ft. per mile. March 24. 1902.--Descending grade; some of the way 32 ft. per mile. June 21, 1902--Altoona is 861 ft. 6 in. higher than Harrisburg. June 19, 1903.--Ran through without a stop; two engines all ...

Author: Martin Robert Karig
From 1880 through the 1950s, the New York, Ontario & Western Railway hauled coal from the rich anthracite deposits of eastern Pennsylvania to homes throughout the eastern United States and Canada. In Hard Coal and Coal Cars, Martin Robert Karig chronicles the rise and fall of the O & W's coal hauling operation in a richly illustrated work that interweaves economic, industrial, and technological history. Karig opens his history with the intense competition for the rights to eastern Pennsylvania's lucrative coal-hauling business. He then details the technological developments that transformed coal cars from wooden carts carrying just a few hundred pounds to steel hoppers hauling several tons. Bringing the story into the twentieth century, Karig explains how the O & W's ownership ultimately abandoned the coal-hauling business in the 1950s as coal was supplanted by more reliable and convenient home heating fuels. Rich with the romance of the railroad and crucial to any understanding of Pennsylvania history, Hard Coal and Coal Cars will be the definitive book on a fascinating chapter of American life.

Author: Anthony J. Bianculli
This work presents a view of the history of American railroads in the nineteenth century from a somewhat different perspective. The maturation of the railroad is traced through an exposition of the railroad technology that was developed and applied during the period. Throughout the nineteenth century, a symbiotic relationship existed between railroading and technology, each dependent upon the state and progress of the other to a large degree. A great deal of new technology was created for the railroad, and the railroad, in turn, applied new technology as it became available. Volume four is about bridges and tunnels, and signals. An exposition of the various types of bridges, their foundations, and the materials of which they were made is included. Tunnels and marine railroad operations are treated also. The development of signal systems is an area that has been overlooked or neglected in the general literature but is fully covered here. The text of this volume is accompanied by 145 illustrations and accurate drawings of the equipment and appliances, many of which have not been published before outside of old technical journals. Anthony J. Bianculli is a mechanical engineer with extensive and varied experience in a Fortune 500 company.
