Articulated Steam Locomotives of the World
Lionel Wiener published his classic work 'Articulated Locomotives' in 1930, I have a copy of the reprint by Kalmbach Publishing. Much of what appears here is based on the book, it's a vast subject and I have no intention to repeat what is well covered elsewhere on the web. Rather I will try to highlight unusual types, particularly with reference to surviving examples and those which survived into my gricing lifetime (ie the last 40 - 50 years). Anyone with a serious interest in the subject should forget the web and instead consult the bibliography - I would welcome additions to that list. I would also welcome suitable pictures - unless it is of a type which is not illustrated here, by and large, I do not intend to upload archive pictures, I could scan many out of the books but I do not think that is an appropriate thing to do in this case.
Previous visitors to this section should note the following additions:
It makes sense to follow Wiener's classification, but that doesn't mean my coverage will be exhaustive too.
True Articulated Locomotives
Temporarily Articulated Locomotives or Locomotives with Auxiliary Engines
Utilisation of the tender's weight for propulsion
