An axle is a central shaft for a rotating wheel or gear.
Broad Street was a major terminal station in the City of London, adjacent to Liverpool Street station.
The capstan equation or belt friction equation, also known as Eytelwein's formula, relates the hold-force to the load-force if a flexible line is wound around a cylinder (a bollard, a winch or a capstan).
Charles Fletcher Lummis (March 1, 1859, in Lynn, Massachusetts – November 24, 1928, in Los Angeles, California) was a United States journalist and an activist for Indian rights and historic preservation.
A classification yard (American and Canadian English) or marshalling yard (British, Hong Kong, Indian, Australian and Canadian English) is a railway yard found at some freight train stations, used to separate railway cars onto one of several tracks.
In physics, a force is any interaction that, when unopposed, will change the motion of an object.
A foresail is one of a few different types of sail set on the foremost mast (foremast) of a sailing vessel.
Hawser is a nautical term for a thick cable or rope used in mooring or towing a ship.
A hydraulic motor is a mechanical actuator that converts hydraulic pressure and flow into torque and angular displacement (rotation).
Hydraulics (from Greek: Υδραυλική) is a technology and applied science using engineering, chemistry, and other sciences involving the mechanical properties and use of liquids.
An internal combustion engine (ICE) is a heat engine where the combustion of a fuel occurs with an oxidizer (usually air) in a combustion chamber that is an integral part of the working fluid flow circuit.
A lighter is a type of flat-bottomed barge used to transfer goods and passengers to and from moored ships.
London is the capital and most populous city of England and the United Kingdom.
A nautical cable is a band of tightly woven and clamped ropes, of a certain length, used during the age of sail for deep water anchoring, heavy lifting, ship to ship transfers and towing during blue sea sailing and other uses.
Old French (franceis, françois, romanz; Modern French: ancien français) was the language spoken in Northern France from the 8th century to the 14th century.
Pneumatics (From Greek: πνεύμα) is a branch of engineering that makes use of gas or pressurized air.
A ratchet is a mechanical device that allows continuous linear or rotary motion in only one direction while preventing motion in the opposite direction.
Shunting, in railway operations, is the process of sorting items of rolling stock into complete trains, or the reverse.
Torque, moment, or moment of force is rotational force.
A transmission is a machine in a power transmission system, which provides controlled application of the power.
A winch is a mechanical device that is used to pull in (wind up) or let out (wind out) or otherwise adjust the "tension" of a rope or wire rope (also called "cable" or "wire cable").
The windlass is an apparatus for moving heavy weights.
Yachting refers to the use of recreational boats and ships called yachts for sporting purposes.
