What is Steam Injection? - Steam Culture

Today on Steam Culture, Brent talks about how the invention of steam injection helped change how the boilers operated in steam powered locomotives.

This creates a self sustaining loop where steam helps pump water into the boiler which then turns into steam and the process continues.
