An adhesion railway relies on adhesion traction to move the train.
Friction is the force resisting the relative motion of solid surfaces, fluid layers, and material elements sliding against each other.
A locomotive or engine is a rail transport vehicle that provides the motive power for a train.
The Midland Railway (MR) was a railway company in the United Kingdom from 1844 to 1922, when it became part of the London, Midland and Scottish Railway.
The Midland Railway 115 Class is a class of 4-2-2 steam locomotive, nicknamed "Spinners".
A multiple-unit train or simply multiple unit (MU) is a self-propelled train composed of one or more carriages joined together, which when coupled to another multiple unit can be controlled by a single driver.
Samuel Waite Johnson (14 October 1831 – 14 January 1912) was Chief Mechanical Engineer (CME) of the Midland Railway from 1873 to 1903.
Sand is a naturally occurring granular material composed of finely divided rock and mineral particles.
Sandite is a substance used on railways in the UK, Ireland, US, the Netherlands and Belgium to combat leaves on the line,http://www.agrri.org.uk/BRR/docs/TM-TRIB-14%20_A_.pdf which can cause train wheels to slip and become damaged with flat spots.
Slippery rail or low railhead adhesion, is a condition of railways (railroads) where contamination of the railhead causes trains to experience less adhesion (grip).
A steam locomotive is a type of railway locomotive that produces its pulling power through a steam engine.
A tram (also tramcar; and in North America streetcar, trolley or trolley car) is a rail vehicle which runs on tramway tracks along public urban streets, and also sometimes on a segregated right of way.
Wheel slide protection and wheel slip protection are railway terms used to describe automatic systems used to detect and prevent wheel-slide during braking or wheel-slip during acceleration.
Under the Whyte notation for the classification of steam locomotives, 4-2-2 represents the wheel arrangement of four leading wheels on two axles, two powered driving wheels on one axle, and two trailing wheels on one axle.
