Steam locomotive - Wikipedia

A steam locomotive is a rail vehicle that provides the force to move itself and other vehicles by means of the expansion of steam.: 80 It is fuelled by burning combustible material (usually coal, oil or – now rare – wood) to heat water in the locomotive's boiler to the point when it becomes gaseous and its volume increases 1700 times. Functionally, it is a steam engine on wheels.

Jan 13, 2014 · Outside the boiler, losses in distribution of steam throughout facilities can decrease energy efficiency by a significant amount. This can cause up to a 60% increase in losses, but typically results in an overall steam efficiency of 50-55% (down from approximately 75% at the boiler).
