That is making things a bit complicated as was found out in the late 1940's. There is a project in the UK at the following website http://www.5at.co.uk/

That is a modern Class 5 (mixed traffic loco) in UK terms; because of the different way you run your railroads, a modern version of the 800 class of the UP perhaps? One was proposed but it fell by the wayside under the relentless tide of the diesels.

Coal, or oil fed steam locomotives are always dirty, high maintenance objects, needing feeding and watering, so it would need and infrastructure as well don't forget. Thus the simpler they are the better, as less 'time out' in the shops is then needed.
