Ok, actually, I know what a "steam" gauge looks like. But why is it called a steam gauge? Does steam actaully have anything to do with it? Are all old-fashioned analoge gauges "steam" gauges?
thanks for any replies,

Ok so now I feel a wee bit stupid for thinking that steam gauges actually had something to with steam. Although I must say that i found it highly perplexing that a 1980's MD-80 might have a very dusty man in the cargo hold shovelling coal into a furnas that powered the gauges.
