Coal to oil burners
Posted by Amorette Allison (+12085) 5 years ago
Wow. In 1917, the Milwaukee Railroad was experimenting with oil fueled locomotives. They were more efficient than coal burners and didn't start fires all over the place. Eliminated the job of the fireman and cut into coal sales. But no one got upset and demanded that locomotives keep burning coal. Hmmmmmm.
