The engines of the Battleship TEXAS propelled this historic warship to North Africa, Normandy, Iwo Jima and Okinawa during WWII. They’re the only surviving examples of reciprocating steam engines on a dreadnought battleship and the largest example of this engine type on a warship. http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/spdest/findadest/parks/battleship_texas/
