Description: A little known sub-group of railroad steam locomotives consisted of engines that used gears together with steam cylinders (common on all steam locomotives) to produce more "constant" pulling power than the conventional and more prevalent "rod" type of steam locomotive. The most prevalent geared locomotives were Shays, Climaxes, and Heislers. Each were made by different companies with different means of implementing geared power to their drivers.
