The Recent History of Steam Locomotive Development

Despite their apparent demise over 40 years ago, steam locomotives continue to work productively in remote locations around the world. Numerous serious attempts have been made to bring steam locomotives back into general railway use. A few individuals have continued to refine steam locomotive design. This web page provides a brief background on steam locomotive development, an overview of several interesting steam locomotive design engineers, and information on the continuing efforts, even today, to produce the Ultimate Steam Locomotive
