When we think of locomotives of the past, we usually think of steam engines. Those certainly are the ones that fascinate us. But diesel and electric engines also have a long history and you'll find examples of each here. These pictures are taken from Railroad Scenes from Shop and Road in the 1917 edition of The Wonder Book of Knowledge. The captions are reproduced from the book.
