|Post subject:||US / UK / German steam design|
I was just going down a wikipedia rabbit hole on German steam locomotives and I realized how familiar but also strange they look compared to US and UK steam power.
It seems like there are a couple things that stand out about German steam power.
There often seems to be quite a bit more piping visible around the boilers (especially compared to UK steam).
Tenders are designed quite differently (especially on the class 52s).
And then there's the paint practices: black uppers and red lowers.
Is anyone here enough of an expert on German steam to explain how it evolved the way it did compared to other countries?
