South America and China have been the biggest foreign buy-ers. The Argentine Government ordered 53, the ChileanState Railways ordered ten, and railways in Colombia, 28.The Tientsin-Pukow of China gave us an order for 45. Itis noteworthy that in the case of the Chilean and Tientsin-Pukow automobiles, all-steel construction was specified. Of the Total of 1,739 passenger automobiles owned by the Pacificsystem of the Southern Pacific, 890 are all-steel, 812 are woodand 37 are of steel underframe construction. The very first steelcoach, constructed as an experiment, was completed in the Sacramentashops of the firm in 1906, and no wooden passenger carshave been constructed by the company given that 1910.

The First Steam Turl^ine Locomotive THE first steam turbine locomotive actually constructedwas created in 1907 by Professor Belluzzo of theEcole Polytechnique, Milan, Italy, and given its mitialtrial run in 1908 at the performs of the Societe AnonymeOfficine Meccaniche, Milan. An old four-wheel regular gage switching locomotive wa.,emploved for the purposes of the test, the clinders and otherparts of the reciprocating engine getting removed and turbmesand npcessar manage mechanism substituted. This engmehad 47ii-in.driving wheels, a wheel base of 6 ft. six)4 in., aheating surface of 646 sq. ft. and carried a boiler pressureof 145 lb. per sq. in. The weight soon after conversion was 57,300 lb. . . J Four turbines were emploved, one turbine getting gearedto every enri of the two a.xles. Steam was admitted from theboiler to the fonvard turbine on the proper hand side, andafter passing through this turbine it was additional expandedthrough the rear turbine on the right hand side, then passedto the left
