Caption: Three-cylinder compound steam locomotive. Diagram of a steam locomotive that used three cylinders in its steam engine. A steam engine converts the thermal energy of steam into motion, with the steam driving pistons to turn a crankshaft that turns the wheels. Steam trains were first developed in the 1820s and 1830s, and many designs were developed over the next hundred years.
