Tough Trains, Rough Man

Operating the steam train is not an easy task.

Crew

A steam locomotive is normally controlled from the boiler's backhead and the crew is usually protected from the elements by a cab. A crew of at least two people is normally required to operate a steam locomotive. One, the engineer or driver, is responsible for controlling the locomotive's starting, stopping and speed, and the fireman or boilerman is responsible maintaining the fire, regulating steam pressure, and monitoring boiler and tender water levels. Due to the historical loss of operational infrastructure and staffing, preserved steam locomotives operating on the mainline will often have a support crew travelling with the train.
