Note the steersman out in front. He had a rope/bell system to communicate with the engineer manning the propulsion.
Over on MEM, Chris Rueby has built a highly detailed, operating model of this machine. This video shows it in operation in his driveway...
If you're interested in Chris' model, a complete build thread is located here...
His current project is an even more complex model of a Marion steam shovel. Build thread here...
Chris's Marion 91 Steam Shovel
WARNING: Both of these build threads are extremely deep rabbit holes. However, if you're interested in seeing how a master craftsman models a complex machine from scratch, these introductions will blow your mind.
