I am writing a report about turbine powered locomotives, specifically steam turbines and UP gas turbines, for Railroad History class and I was wondering where to find info and pics online. Does anyone know?

If you're looking for raw statistics, the roster entry (for UP 18) on the Illinois Railway Museum's website might be useful:

If you're looking for a broader spectrum of info, you might want to try plugging "railroad turbines" or "union pacific turbines" into Google. I was looking for facts about them a year or so ago and there was a lot of info out there.

If your online sources are inadequate, I'd recommend the Fall 2004 issue of Classic Trains magazine.

Try this link to the Union Pacific Railroad Historical Society they should be able to help you out. :wink:
