Museum Discussion / #9 max steam pressure
« on: February 17, 2018, 04:59:07 PM »
I've caught on a notice put up in the cab that the maximum steam pressure in the boiler is 140PSi. I'd like to know if it was the same pressure when it was built in 1891 or if it is the mandated pressure required by the authority that checks the boiler.

Thank you for your explanations. I'm not only a newcomer to the WW&F but to a discussion forum as well. Hoboes were part of the railroad in the thirties  quite a lot of songs were written and movies shot about their lives .Maybe there were any that rode the trains  of the WW&F Railroad before it was closed down. I guess you don't have any hobo on your trains now.
In Pithiviers every passenger buys their old style tickets at the station window before boarding the train and during the return journey the conductor ask for the tickets "Controle des billets s'il vous plait !" and punch them. It's part of the the"folklore" and I have never found a faredogger. Kids love that and me too.  Does the conductor punch the  tickets on the train during the journey ?

I'm proud on my new position on the railway. I wish I could be there and wipe your lovely locomotive. In Pithiviers it was my job when I started out a long time back. By the way what does a hobo  do ?
