Steam locomotive produces smoke on fast train

Super Power premier

The era of modern steam power dates to Lima’s development of Super Power and the Boston & Albany Berkshire (2-8-4), which hauled freight through its namesake mountains. But the B&A locomotive’s small (63-inch-diameter) drivers failed to take advantage of its boiler to generate steam fast enough for high-speed service. Number 1421 is eastbound at Warren, Mass., on October 14, 1947. Photo by Robert A. Buck, Kenneth J. Buck collection
