N&W 611 Inital breakin “The First Wheel” under steam. 1982 Irondale to Chattanooga


N&W 611 on it’s first Break in run outing after the inital rebuild in 1982. This is the first wheel turned under steam. At one point in the video you hear a crew member say “She runs GRRRREAT! ” Also in this video is 611’s first wheel slip since the 50’s. Lord do miss the “J”. RARE video !!! “I am the thoroughbred of steam- Born to run- Born to be free- Forgive them Lord, for they know not what they do!”

Does a steam engine piston have a 50-50 chance of which direction to turn the wheel?

It seems that when a steam engine starts up it should just push (or pull) the wheel and it will spin in that direction. Does this happen? Does there have to be gearing after the fact to correct the direction?

Does the same thing apply to electric motors that have 2 electromagnets separated by 180 degrees?
Inertia works great once the motor starts, but what direction does the motor go when it first starts?
