I think they are for lubrication. I'm pretty sure that there is a lubrication diagram in the archives that show them, but, my computer is down and can't access the site.Jimmy LisleSent from my Verizon, Samsung Galaxy smartphone

I never heard anyone explain those hoses to me, but I
don’t think they were for lubrication. I think they wee for water in case
of a hotbox, but that doesn’t explain why the center journal didn’t have
one. The T-40 truck was designed so that the weight was equal or pretty
near equal on all six journals.
Maybe there is someone who can enlighten us
Glad you’re liking the book.

I just finished re-reading "The A" book for I

On pages 192-193 is a great shot of the unique
15,000 gallon tender. Love the style of them! Anyway, the trucks have some sort
of line going to the first and third journals of both trucks with shutoff
valves. I'm assuming (Oh no!) they are lubrication lines. If so, why don't the
center journals have these lines?
Thanks for the annual joy I receive from
reading your book!
