The International Steam Pages

Train Technology Conference, Quebec, April 2008

On April 22-23 2008 a conference about train technology will be held in Québec City by the train group

A paper on Quasiturbine Steam Locomotive will be presented, which is available (in French) at :

This paper is based on research work and several papers done by our friend Harry Valentine:

1) The Steam-Powered Quasiturbine in Direct-Drive Railway Locomotive Propulsion 

2) The Possibility of a Stirling-Hydraulic Quasiturbine Locomotive -

3) A Thermo-Pneumatic Quasiturbine Locomotive - With addendum on subway operation - 

4) Modernising the Fireless Steam Accumulator Locomotive 
Part 1 - Part 2 - Part 3

5) Developing a PCM (Phase-Change Material) Thermal Rechargeable Quasiturbine Railway Locomotive - 

6) Researching a GPCS-Accumulator Steam Locomotive - The hybrid-accumulator steam locomotive 

7) Researching a Heat-Pumped Condensing Steam Locomotive - 

8) Researching an Air-Steam Combined-cycle Locomotive -
