Engineering of the 5AT
The 5AT Group includes a number of people, including professional engineers, with experience in designing, building, operating and maintaining steam locomotives.
Until the suspension of the 5AT Project, their efforts were directed at developing preliminary designs for the 5AT locomotive, including Fundamental Design Calculations, Detailed Design and Engineering Drawings.
Other aspects of the engineering effort undertaken in relation to the 5AT Project are covered in other sections of this website, in particular:
- Philosophy behind the 5AT Design Specification;
- The 5AT Technical Specifications;
- 5AT Performance;
- 5AT Features.
Note: Wardale’s own observations about the design of the 5AT can be read in his paper written for the Modern Steam conference held at York in December 2006.
