Caption: 1944 steam locomotive pulling 1940s-era passenger cars through Cuyahoga Valley National Park, Ohio. Steam locomotives are fueled by burning some combustible material, usually coal, to produce steam in a boiler that drives the wheels. This clip provides a good example of the Doppler effect, as there is a noticeable change in the sound frequency (pitch) of the whistle as the locomotive passes.
