A 2-4-0T steam locomotive which was restored to working order in Spain recently. Originally built by Sharp Stewart and Co. as a 2-4-0 express engine in 1877 it was converted into a tank engine in the 1890s. Several examples were still in use by Spanish railways in the 1960s.

This video contains the first real good footage I have seen of an inside cylinder locomotive’s “motion” in motion.

The Eastland Disaster was one of the worst accidents in maritime history. But unlike other disasters which happened under adverse conditions - this wreck happened while the Eastland was docked. After taking on a full load of passengers on the 24th of July, 1915, the top heavy steamer rolled over on its side - killing over 800 people.
