Thank you for posting the link to the C-2 Booster treatise.  Very interesting!

Does anybody know of any boiler design references or formula guidelines that the later US steam designers?  I'd be interested in N&W's especially, but any of Paul Kiefer's (NYC) or Altoona Works' (PRR) later design guidelines would be fascinating!  I'm specifically interested in these people's thinking about ratio of flue length to diameter, ratio of tube dia to flue dia, single-pass vs multi-pass superheater configurations, combustion chamber length considerations, etc.
