in a compound locomotive, steam is made to work twice over, with consequent fuel savings. In the first high-pressure cylinder or cylinders, the steam is only partially expanded. This expansion is then completed and the residual energy extracted in a low-pressure cylinder or cylinders. The temperature gradient within each cylinder is reduced considerably, and thus condensation losses are minimised. The high and low-pressure cylinders have to be arranged to do about the same quantity of work, and the low-pressure cylinders are normally of a greater diameter that the high-pressure cylinders, as the steam at low pressure occupies a greater volume.
