Locomotive re-fueling and re-watering
Posted by allieq524 on Friday, February 8, 2013 3:46 PM

Taking various operating conditions into consideration, how many miles and/or running time would an "average" long-distance passenger train operate before requiring re-fueling and steam generator re-watering in the by-gone days of F- and E-unit motive power?  Tend to believe, that in winter especially, boiler water re-fills would be required more often than re-fueling.
