Bernie Feltman General Nice 1/25/2011 6:45:25 AM
David Farmer General Failed technology ? Not hardly. N&W, UP and Pennsy also had steam turnies. Today most of us get our electricity from steam turbine power plants. We see coal trains going to them everday. 6/23/2014 11:28:39 PM
David Farmer General As I recall the N&W steam turbine was called Jawn Henry (not John Henry). Not those on the C&O. 6/23/2014 11:31:40 PM
