Weekend Steam: Take An Excursion On The Waverly

This beautiful side-wheeler was built in 1946, reboilered in 1957, and again in 1981.  It is still thrilling people today.  Let's have a look in the engine room, where there is a triple expansion engine that will warm the heart of every steam fan.  The cylinders are 24", 39", and 62", by 66" stroke.

Those are considerably different than the handful of US triple expansion engines that I have seen. Thanks for the link!
