      ... br> The Climax is one of three known to still exist in the whole world; another is under restoration at the Cass RR, about which Linda wrote yesterday. The Climax design sports a single piston on each side of the boiler, mounted diagonally, with the force transferred thru a series of gears to two trucks under the firebox-and-boiler and two more under the (integral) tender.
