This force isapphed alternately on every side of the piston, ten occasions in a second.The control of such forces requires mechanism which performs withthe utmost precision and with absolute certainty, and it is for thisreason that the speed and the economical operating- of a locomotivedepend so significantly on the proportions of the valves and the valve-gear by which the distribution of steam in the cylinders iscontrolled. The engraving (Fig. two)^^ on p. 133 represents the cab finish of alocomotive of the New York Central &amp Hudson River Railroad,looking forward from the tender, and shows the attachments bywhich the engineer works the engine.* This gives an notion ofthe number of keys on which he has to play in operating such amachine.
