The Mighty Steam Locomotive: An Illustrated Technological History

Wed, Oct 5
6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Free
The Buffalo History Museum • One Museum Court, Buffalo 14216

Description

Many historians credit the steam locomotive and the railroads with building America in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.  Author Walter Simpson’s presentation will use images from his latest railroad book “The Steam Locomotive Energy Story” to take a deep dive into steam locomotive evolution, explaining how these spectacular machines worked, used energy, and reached their technological zenith in the “Super Power” locomotive era – just before diesel technology took over in the 1950s. This talk is free due to the generosity of Walter Simpson.
