Glossary Results for Word "Teutonic 2-2-2-0 Locomotive Class"
|Teutonic 2-2-2-0 Locomotive Class||The ‘Teutonic’ was developed from the ‘Dreadnought’ class, and became the most successful and, when built, the largest of F.W. Webb’s 2-2-2-0 three-cylinder compounds . Using the same boiler, they had 7ft 1in driving wheels (compared with 6ft 3in on the ‘Dreadnoughts’). The reversers for the two outside high-pressure cylinders, and the one inside low-pressure cylinder were linked, so that the driver could adjust one independently of the other. The axle boxes were lubricated by oil instead of grease, a feature introduced on the class. All except “Jeanie Deans” were named after ships of the White Star Line. “Pacific”, the third of the class, was originally built as a triple expansion compound but was soon converted to conform with the rest of the class.|
