Abstract

The use of mechanical lubricators to provide regular and accurate feeds of lubricating oil to important moving parts of railway steam engines has been practised for many years, but details of a recently designed and fitted lubrication system of this type is of particular interest in that provision is made for a total of eighty feeds on each locomotive. This system has been fitted to engines ordered by the South Australian Government Railways, and it is indeed a pointer to the fact that railway engine designers are alive to the importance of correct mechanical lubrication.
