the big gauge with black circumference is the steam pressure gauge which is supposed to stay at 125PSI for engines 1(this one) and 2, 150PSI for engines 3 and 5 and 200PSI for engine 4. the smaller red one is brake pressure containing two needles one for the reservoir one for the brake pipe showing how much is applied. the traffic lights are block lights. at the DLRR red means that everyone must stop now, yellow means to proceed to the next block marker and stay there and green means to go as fast as possible(not too fast or you will hear "on the trail" in the dinosaurs). the big lever from the middle of the boiler to the right is the throttle sometimes called the regulator, it moves steam from the boiler to the clyinders moving the loco, the blue cans are for oiling, the handles next to the water glass i mentioned in the other picture are the atomizer which sprays the biodiesel in the firebox making it easier to burn and the blower which sends steam up the stack to create a draft on the fire when exhaust from the clyinders is unavaileble. the brass clyinders in front of the water glass and steam gauge are lamps for lighting them, the other one is the brake compressor's lubricator which uses water to force oil into the compressor, the black handle near it is the blowdown valve. sometimes at new orleans you will see a jet of steam coming out on the berm side of the engine. that's from this lever and is used to clear the boiler from sludge. in the "worn" area the green handles are cocks from the boiler used to check the water level when the water glass "dies". i hope you enjoyed my description - etaymarkman  4.2 #20743 5:12AM

i heard that the system is temporary and something that will fill water faster might be added later. the engineers and firemen still don't know what

They add something to the water on those containers to the right. When I asked what it was, they told me "chocolate milk" so it smells nice. It's really something to control the oxygen in the water. But my kid loved it and is convinced it runs on chocolate milk. - DLKenCA  2076.2 #62 7:46AM
Cute. They are always ready to answer all sorts or questions. - sultan  37.4 #4993 8:41AM
