But steam tech didn't die off. Ironically, many BEV's are steam powered because that's still the primary way for converting heat into electricity.This is what is known as a joke, made for the purposes of hyperbole.

The point again, here, is that all of this was a lost cause. Diesel trains took over the market shortly after this photo and this locomotive went nowhere.
I am, figuratively, the modern version of these gentlemen. I am an expert in a field that is coming to the end.
