    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). On a conventional, non-articulated locomotive, the driving wheels are all coupled together with side rods (also known as coupling rods); normally one pair is directly driven by the main rod (or connecting rod) which is connected to the. Among these engines may be mentioned the “Reid-MacLeod” geared turbine condensing locomotive, built by the North British Locomotive Co. Ltd, of Glasgow, in This engine differs from the “Ljungstrom” turbo- condensing locomotive in many respects, notably in that its turbines .

    Background. Union Pacific operated the largest fleet of gas turbine-electric locomotives (GTELs) of any railroad in the world. The prototype, UP 50, was the first in a series built by General Electric for Union Pacific's long-haul cargo services and marketed by the Alco-GE partnership until The prototype was introduced in and was followed by three series of production locomotives. Norfolk & Western's Jawn Henry (named for the legendary "steel-drivin' man") was the last of a handful of U.S. experimental steam turbine locomotives, which appeared as a response to the diesel-electric locomotive's overall superiority to conventional steam power. Turbines first came into use for steamships and power plants around , and their advantages over reciprocating engines prompted.
