The introduction of the steam locomotive superheater, first introduced in Europe during the late 19th century began appearing in the United States during the early 20th century. This device, which in basic terms reheats the steam generated by the boiler essentially performed the same function as a compound locomotive yet was much easier to.

A compound steam engine unit is a type of steam engine where steam is expanded in two or more stages. A typical arrangement for a compound engine is that the steam is first expanded in a high-pressure (HP) cylinder, then having given up heat and losing pressure, it exhausts directly into one or more larger-volume low-pressure (LP) cylinders.

Multiple-expansion engines employ additional.
