Steam locomotives had many gauges to let the operator know how much pressure and heat he had. This was very important to operations because if too much pressure built up in the boiler the locomotive could explode. Gauges that have provenance and are identified to a specific locomotive tend to sell for a premium so any history on a gauge is important. Values for gauges vary based on condition, size, type of gauge, and locomotive or railroad that it’s from.
