Freight Passenger

Was there a "universal" steam locomotive?

There was not a "universal" design for steam locomotives, as for the most part, steam locomotive design was based on the expected service of the locomotive. For the longest time that boiled down to 4 sub-sections of 1.) Freight 2.) Passenger 3.) Switching 4.) Specialty (inspection, experimental, etc).

Traits that made for a good freight locomotive (high tractive effort with a relatively low top speed) did not always translate well into good passenger service locomotive (high speed with a relatively low amount of low speed tractive effort) , and the inverse was also true.

About the closest design that could have been referred to as "universal" would be the 4-4-0 design used in the mid to late 1800's, as it was used for all sorts of uses, and could be found in freight, passenger, and switching, with changes in design such as driver size being key for the differences. Then again, during that time period, mixed passenger and freight trains were also common as well.

As needs changed, steam freight and passenger locomotives tended to take on different designs and specs from one another.
