Firemen in training - another B&W documentary film.

Recommended Posts

Early example of using simulators for training. In this case the simulators represent the firebox backheads and tender shovelling plates of various JNR steam loco classes. The short-handled shovels are, as far as I know, unique to Japan.



I wish I'd had something like this when I was learning to fire. 🙂

Reminds me of my time learning to run steamship boiler rooms, we had something similar at the academy!
