Gradually increased. In the beginning the trade was con­ ducted mainly by carrying oil in drums, cases, barrels, and similar small containers, in sailing ships, but the expanding demand resulted in the intro­ duction of the oil tanker in the form known today when the Gluckauf of about 3200 tonnes deadweight was built on the Tyne in 1886. Since that time there has been continuing progress in the size and sophistication of tankers (Fig. 4). Figs. S. 2 ’ tankers (1945), of which 480 were built.

One o f the Chapelon rebuilt 4 -6 -2 locom otives of the Paris-Orleans Railway, as used on the N o rth e rn Rail AND R OL L I NG STOCK 765 without the complications in mechanical design and handling that were so necessary on the imported locomotives. The Stephenson link motion still remained one of the simplest forms of valve gear, and Churchward devised an improved layout, whereby better openings for steam entry and exhaust were obtained. This involved a longer travel of the valve, a feature at first not favoured by other engineers because of a fear of undue wear.
