GEAR, WITH QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS ON
SINCE the first edition of this book was printed the Walschaert valve gear has been adopted, practically to the exclusion of the old link motion, on nearly every railroad in America; and its success, together with the actual necessity for an outside valve gear on the extremely large locomotives now in general use, has stimulated the development of other styles of radial valve gear of which the two most successful of this type are fully described in the present edition, with questions and answers explaining the proper method of procedure in cases of breakdowns of either style of gear while on the road.
And while valve setting is becoming a lost art except to the back-shop man since the general advent of radial gears, the question as to how valves with the Walschaert gear may be “set” is asked so often that it is now fully answered in this edition; and the knowledge is of decidedly more importance to the shop man at present, than to the locomotive engineer.
