PREFACE TO THE SECOND EDITION.
There is much for the ambitious progressive fireman to learn. The modern locomotive is a wonderful piece of machinery. There are many devices and innumberable parts which make up the complicated mechanism. Much more must be learned and thoroughly understood than the mere operation of the engine and getting the locomotive and train over the road.
The educational requirements demanded of firemen who aspire to be engineers are becoming more and more exacting and much more is comprised in the examinations to which they are subjected than was formerly the case. Every time coal is thrown into the fire-box and every time water is injected into the boiler, certain physical and chemical changes take place. These are facts the fireman now-a-days has to be perfectly familiar with., besides knowing many other fundamental principles which underlie locomotive operation and management.
In order to keep pace with these and other advances it became necessary to greatly improve and add considerably to the examinations so that the Traveling Engineer's Association Questions and Answers as given in full in the first edition of this book are inadequate for present day methods.
In this revised and greatly enlarged edition has been included everything necessary to add to the examinations in order to meet the changed order of things and the greatly improved motive power.
