Weekend Steam: Bulleid Southern Railway Strange Locomotive

 Merle found one that I have never heard of. British railways were nationalized after WW II, and they did some odd things. Thank You Merle!

I will paraphrase two things I heard.
"...the tendency for flames to enter the cab..."
I can see where the crew would object to that tiny problem.
"....would have prolonged steam."
I think there's a point in technology change when any time or money spent on the old technology is wasted.
The trick is knowing how to pick the new technology that will succeed instead of following a dead end.
