Andrew, can you explain to this 'Limey' what the apparatus is on the chimney ('Stack' to you I think?). Thanks in anticipation.

Hi Tony
sorry no idea, its a chimney to me too, I am as Limey as you, English guy living in Luxembourg, working in aviation and very well travelled. Sorry I cant answer your question, I have seen this loco many times and never really noticed that!

Tony/Andrew,
This is a telescopic stack extension which ATSF fitted to a number of their steam locomotives. The idea was that when raised it lifted and cleared the exhaust smoke better. It could be lowered for bridges and tunnels. I wonder how many they lost when the crew forgot to lower them?

Ah, that would be a case for Smokeless Coal then if they were getting smuts in their eyes. How does the song go, "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes".

Thanks Steve, it's what I expected.

The appliance also was helpful keeping smoke out of the cab in tunnels and snow sheds. Southern Rwy in the Southeast USA had some they called "smoke deflectors" on their CNO&TP Division due to the many tunnels they travelled through.
