    BLW: The Canadian Steamers Generator Pack

    A steam generator is a type of boiler used to produce steam for climate control and potable water heating in railroad passenger cars. The output of a railroad steam generator is low pressure, saturated steam that is passed through a system of pipes and conduits throughout the length of the train.

    Steam generators were developed when diesel locomotives started to replace steam locomotives on passenger trains. In most cases, each passenger locomotive was fitted with a steam generator and a feedwater supply tank. The steam generator used some of the locomotive's diesel fuel supply for combustion. When a steam generator-equipped locomotive was not available for a run, a so-called "heating car" fitted with one or two steam generators was inserted between the last locomotive in the consist and the rest of the train.

    Steam heated or cooled rail cars have been largely replaced or converted to fully electric systems.

    The Canadian Steamers Generator Pack includes:

    17 Units

    • 3 CN Steamers (White, Black) "15441", "15470" and "15486"
    • 2 CNR Steamers (Green yellow and black) "15424" and "15456"
    • 4 VIA Steamers "15418", "15442", "15473" and "15481"
    • 2 ONR Steamers "200" & "210"
    • 1 ONR "206" (ex VIA 15483) HEP generator car rebuilt from steam generator car.
    • 3 AMT Generator "600", "603" & "604" HEP generator car rebuilt from steam generator car.
    • 2 Algoma Steamers "75" & "77"

    Special thanks to our testing crew, Ulrich Ehlers, David Carleton and Tim Spencer.
