USE LOCOMOTIVE TO RUN FACTORY (May, 1933)
This reminds me of some sort of jury-rigged post-apocalyptic setup you’d see in Mad Max.
USE LOCOMOTIVE TO RUN FACTORY
When two boilers of a Newark, Ohio, refinery had to be taken out of service simultaneously for repairs, the company engineer averted an expensive shut-down by using a locomotive to provide emergency steam. The engine, rented from a nearby railroad shop, was run on a siding beside the plant. Piston and cylinder head were removed, permitting the steam to be drawn off for use in the refinery. A temporary smokestack and a traveling-bucket coal loader completed the conversion. For two weeks, the locomotive ran the plant.
