Sectional view of a Newcomen steam engine, 1737

Sectional view of a Newcomen steam engine, 1737. Thomas Newcomen (1663-1729) designed his atmospheric or steam engine in 1712. Water was heated in the boiler and the resulting steam was let into the cylinder, pushing up the piston. The steam was then condensed, bringing down the piston. The piston rocked a beam which worked the pump. It was safer and more effective than the earlier Savery engine and was widely used to drain water out of mines. From Architecture Hydraulique by Bernard Forest de Belidor. (Paris, 1737)

Engine, tender, and carriage - side view, 1845. Creator: Unknown

Engine, tender, and carriage - side view, 1845. ...a System of Tram-ways composed entirely of Wood, which the inventor, Mr. William Prosser, maintains to be "equally expeditious, and more safe, more durable, and considerably more economical than the iron railway." The main feature of the invention is, however, a system of Guide wheels, which have been patented by Mr. Prosser, and which may be applied either to iron or wooden rails...The rails, or rather trams, of seven to eight inches scantling, are indurated and protected against fire, rot, and insects, by the injection, by successive exhaustion and pressure, of two solutions, mineral and alkaline...The friction and oscillation, and general wear and tear involved in the use of the conical tire and the flange, are thus obviated, and the friction of attrition is converted into a friction of rotation...'. From "Illustrated London News", 1845, Vol VII
