„Gooch valve gear excenter“

from the gallery of Palle Smith-Petersen

I recently learnt that Gooch's valve drive was invented by two of his subordinates. Did he steal the honour? Did they give it to him? Thousands of locomotives were built with this valve gear, although apparently it was inferior to other types.
