    In regard to the steam tractor photo. What fuel did they use? Coal or wood? I enlarged the full size image and I think I see a coal shovel, but only a small bin that MIGHT contain coal. Or perhaps there is some firewood behind the right side drive wheel.

    Just curious, sure is an impressive machine.

    This reply is to the post on page 50 of the shipyard in 1942...


    Sad to say, but that was an American shipyard in the 40's...
    Today that same photo would be taken in China or South Korea...

    We all hear you! With more than 2400 mega trawlers/ships just to empty the oceans, China has a large stake in shipping.Its pretty bad when a large US company buys Chinese made ships to import Chinese goods & return empty ready for the next shipment.

    Not just the US, but Britain, Germany, Holland, Japan etc etc have caved into the home costs of creating ships but we need to start rejuvinating our economies before a total monopoly of everything has us all to mercy. (Exceptions seem to be war/patrol vessels but what electronic components are M.in C.?)

    It is wonderful that some British companies have started to build tools again: bit dearer but better in long term for macro economy.

    Saw a segment on TV the other night about how China has a HUGE lead in the electric car market. If we are not careful........ scary to think about..

    Navy manuals are the best. I have many down loaded. They're thorough, clear, and accessible. They're available on the internet with just a little search effort.
