Difference between Driving wheel and Steam locomotive

Driving wheel vs. Steam locomotive

On a steam locomotive, a driving wheel is a powered wheel which is driven by the locomotive's pistons (or turbine, in the case of a steam turbine locomotive). A steam locomotive is a type of railway locomotive that produces its pulling power through a steam engine.

Similarities between Driving wheel and Steam locomotive

Driving wheel and Steam locomotive have 14 things in common (in Unionpedia): Articulated locomotive, Connecting rod, Coupling rod, Diesel locomotive, Duplex locomotive, Electric locomotive, Locomotive, Piston, SR Merchant Navy class, Steam locomotive, Steam turbine locomotive, Switcher, UIC classification of locomotive axle arrangements, Whyte notation.

Articulated locomotive

The term "articulated locomotive" usually means a steam locomotive with one or more engine units which can move independent of the main frame.

Connecting rod

A connecting rod is a shaft which connects a piston to a crank or crankshaft in a reciprocating engine.

Coupling rod

A coupling rod or side rod connects the driving wheels of a locomotive.

Diesel locomotive

A diesel locomotive is a type of railway locomotive in which the prime mover is a diesel engine.

Duplex locomotive

A duplex locomotive is a steam locomotive that divides the driving force on its wheels by using two pairs of cylinders rigidly mounted to a single locomotive frame; it is not an articulated locomotive.

Electric locomotive

An electric locomotive is a locomotive powered by electricity from overhead lines, a third rail or on-board energy storage such as a battery or a supercapacitor.

SR Merchant Navy class

The SR Merchant Navy class (originally known as the 21C1 class, and later informally known as Bulleid Pacifics, Spam Cans or Packets) is a class of air-smoothed 4-6-2 Pacific steam locomotives designed for the Southern Railway by Oliver Bulleid.

Steam turbine locomotive

A steam turbine locomotive is a steam locomotive which transmits steam power to the wheels via a steam turbine.

Switcher

A switcher or shunter (Great Britain: shunter; Australia: shunter or yard pilot; United States: switcher, switch engine, or yard goat, except Pennsylvania Railroad: shifter) is a small railroad locomotive intended not for moving trains over long distances but rather for assembling trains ready for a road locomotive to take over, disassembling a train that has been brought in, and generally moving railroad cars around – a process usually known as ''switching'' (USA) or shunting (UK).

Whyte notation

The Whyte notation for classifying steam locomotives by wheel arrangement was devised by Frederick Methvan Whyte, and came into use in the early twentieth century following a December 1900 editorial in American Engineer and Railroad Journal.
