Difference between Steam locomotive and Trailing wheel

Steam locomotive vs. Trailing wheel

A steam locomotive is a type of railway locomotive that produces its pulling power through a steam engine. On a steam locomotive, a trailing wheel or trailing axle is generally an unpowered wheel or axle (wheelset) located behind the driving wheels.

Similarities between Steam locomotive and Trailing wheel

Steam locomotive and Trailing wheel have 14 things in common (in Unionpedia): Bogie, Booster engine, Driving wheel, Duplex locomotive, Pennsylvania Railroad, Steam locomotive, Steam locomotive components, Steam turbine locomotive, UIC classification of locomotive axle arrangements, Wheelset (rail transport), Whyte notation, 2-6-6-6, 2-8-2, 4-8-4.

Bogie

A bogie (in some senses called a truck in North American English) is a chassis or framework carrying wheelsets, attached to a vehicle, thus serving as a modular subassembly of wheels and axles.

Booster engine

A booster engine for steam locomotives is a small two-cylinder steam engine back-gear-connected to the trailing truck axle on the locomotive or, if none, the lead truck on the tender.

Driving wheel

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).

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.

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.

2-6-6-6

The 2-6-6-6 (in Whyte notation) is an articulated locomotive type with 2 leading wheels, two sets of six driving wheels and six trailing wheels. Only two classes of the 2-6-6-6 type were built.

2-8-2

Under the Whyte notation for the classification of steam locomotives, represents the wheel arrangement of two leading wheels on one axle, usually in a leading truck, eight powered and coupled driving wheels on four axles and two trailing wheels on one axle, usually in a trailing truck.
