Real Steam Engines

Post by Hi-Torque » Thu May 30, 2013 11:43 am

Hello,

One of the many aspects of Factorio that I find fascinating is its portrayals of technology. Maybe some of you will find these pictures we took of some real working steam engines and boilers on board vessels in Hamburg last month of interest.

Kind Regards

Hello Friends,

Not that the first post was terribly interesting, but here are a few more details of steam engines taken at the German Shipping Museum in Hamburg. http://www.flickr.com/photos/miaskelley ... 439355652/

Also it occurs to me looking though these photos, to ask if wind and tidal power generation are under consideration? Many years ago when I used to play Total Annihilation, those two forms of power while not the most efficient, were always my favorites.
