Steam, Trains

A steam engine is a heat engine that performs mechanical work using steam as its working fluid.
The steam engine uses the force produced by steam pressure to push a piston back and forth inside a cylinder.
This pushing force is transformed, by a connecting rod and flywheel, into rotational force for work
We don't use steam engines (reciprocating type) any more because we have an advanced manufacturing infrastructure that can cheaply build the more complex but more efficient internal combustion engine.
We also have an abundant fossil fuel source to power it.
