Westinghouse Motor, No. 3, the Progenitor of the
D.C. Railway Motor.
Present Universally-Adopte- d
No better example of the value
of sound principles to present day engineering could
be cited than the Westinghouse No. 3 Motor, as introduced in 1891.
Its design was so fundamentally correct and the
details were so soundly worked out that subsequent
developments of railway motors all followed the principles embodied in it. Now let's see what bearing this
has had on modern transportation.
In 1700 the first permanently fixed rails made their
appearance. In 1831, in New York, horse cars began
operation. In 1834, after fruitless attempts to apply
steam, compressed air, gas, etc., to these cars, a
Vermont blacksmith, one Thomas Davenport, sug- -
gested that electricity be used as the motive power.
The very first practical commercial dynamo, built by
Gramme, in 1862, made this suggestion a possibility.
It was natural that George Westinghouse, with his
intense interest in transportation, should take up this
problem. From 1889 to 1891, he, with his organization, worked continuously to perfect a commercially
practicable railway motor, and the famous No. 3,
daddy of all street railway motors, was the result.
As mentioned before, the principles embodied in the
No. 3, thirty-tw- o
years ago, are still in use, and at least
ten prominent features of this remarkable motor are
types. A number of these
to be found in present-da- y
early motors are still in operation a tribute to sound
