bottom of sill. The center
of gravity is 40 inches lower
tban old cars and also be
low: the axel-bearing. Conse
quently it is almost impossible
to overturn, a thing of every day
occurrence on the ordinary rail
road. The trucks run lengthwise
of the train instead of cross
wise the cars, allowing the floor
to be dropped io eicht inches of
the track. Each and every wheel
has an individual airbrake, which
works alone and independently of
all others. One brake to a car is
the common way.
In a train of five standard cars
there is b actual measurement
1 ,436 square feet of surface ex
posed to the resistance of the air,
while in tne "Thunderbolt" there
is but 140 square feet exposed, or
less than one-tenth as much sur
faco oxposed to air resistance.
The side friction of both trains
is considered in this calculation.
By the forgoing data of wind
preasure we find that the Empire
State express on its famous run
of 112 miles an hour had a direct
air resistance of 60 pounds a foot
against 1,436 square feet of sur
face, equal to 86,160 pounds or
43 tons, without counting about
40 tons power lost dragging the
surrounding air along its path.
"Thunderbolt" has sixty pounds
pressure times 140 square feet of
surface exposed to air, or S.460
pounds only, equal to one-tenth
of Empire State resistance.
Engine? In the common loco
motive the boiler used is 06 inches
in diameter by '27 inches overall,
having 230 two-inch flues 12
inches long, supplying the
cylinders with wet steam
taken directly from fop of
wafer. Steam travels 24 inches
through pipe to cylinder head,
thns wasting 40 per cent of pres
sure in pipe friction and turning
five corners. The boiler in
"Thunderbolt" is the same length,
elliptic instead of circular in
form; has 502 flues instead of 231.
It has a horizontal partition with
super-heating steam chainbor.
largor than a cpmmon boiler; the
steam travels-only four inches to
get from boiler to C3linder iu
stoadof 24 inches, thus saving the
eutiro 40 per cent lost by the old
boiler, All steam is super
heated, also a great advautage.
A common engine exhausts
perpendicular up against the air
at its gravity weight of 15 pounds
per square inch, which is equal
to a downward stroke of 3.S00
pound hammer on top of the
engine even iime the engine puffs t
at the open throttle. In
the new engine the exhaust
is directly back, sending
the smoke and einders out of the
rear end of the train and thus
forcing the train forward by a ,
preasure of 3.SQ0 pounds, a clear
of nearlv two tons of
