She weighs 93,000 lbs. in working order!  When we are done it will be a few pounds lighter as there are a couple of areas where we could lighten it up some.

For these Porter locos, the ratio of weight on drivers to rated tractive effort was about 5.6. Generally for steam locomotives intended for road service the ratio was around 4. Sounds like the Porter locos in question were sure-footed beasts.
