After nearly a century of service with uncharged essentials, the passing of this ma chine seems to be near at hand, ami railway development is pro gressing along the two-distinct lines of. complete electrification and the adoption of internal combustion en gines. In the funnel* system, the prime mover is stationary, the 1 power being transmitted to the lo comotive electrically.
