I've long wondered where we might be now with steam power, if it had gotten the same development resources that internal combustion did.

The steam engine was developed for another 50 years in the railroad world but even then they were no match for the diesel electric. But in the automotive world, even back in the early they were experimenting with flash heaters, high pressures and other advanced thinking that were making them a lot more practical and usable.
