Compressed Air Locomotive

Used in many mines, compressed air locomotives provided a viable option to the use of horses or mules for moving ore cars.

Per info on the description sheet, these operated off the nominal 100 psig air supply headers within the mines.

Some mines had dedicated headers with pressures up to 3,000 psig, for added operational range.

This one is located at the World Museum of Mining in Butte, MT.
