CONSTRUCTING TURBO-GENERATOR CAR FOR POWER TRAIN
CD 2478018 E&MP10.046
April 17, 1944
A steam line large enough for a man to crawl through is hoisted into place on the turbo-generator car of a 5000-kilowatt Power Train which will restore electricity to cities reconquered from the Axis by United Nations armies.
This big pipe will carry exhaust steam from the windmill-like turbine to the condensers, huge radiators which convert the used steam back into water so it can be pumped into the boilers again.
Westinghouse is building nearly a dozen 5000-kilowatt trains and more than 20 three-car Power Trains, each capable of generating 1000 kilowatts.
