I said locomotive... not train. But Pacanis is partly correct. Stoker is one term, but "fireman" is the most correct.

Ahhhh,,, Andy got it!!!

I don't know the difference between steam and other trains. As I understand it, in the simplest terms, the engineer handles the front of the train and the conductor the back. C'est la vie. I'll get one of these sooner or later, and then watch out! I got some toughies lined up for y'all!
