Yessir; i quess by far most of the early heavy weights were based on the steamers; big heavy and with chain bolster steering. :lol: Sort of the old wagon principle.

i love that big stuff.. and have even seen chain drive loaders and dozers.. but I'll admit it.. steam engines kinda scare me. I was at a fair that had a steamer explode. I had been near the exhbit 15 m prior... and was back a hundred yards away behind a large circus style tent when it went off. it was pretty bad!

Soundguy being scared of what an exploding boiler can do is good sence. Engineers that have handled these big guys for years are definately in awe and respect the potentials of the pressures within a boiler ;)
