Steam Locomotive Valve Gear Animation - Forward

Note: The sound will not necessarily synchronize with the animation. An effort was made to make the sound the correct speed for the animation; however, the rendering speed of animated GIFs can vary with different browsers and systems.

The full size locomotive with its 75 inch drivers would be going about 5 MPH (8 Km/h).
