Original specs - 51" drivers, 200 psi boiler pressure, 23.5x30" cylinders, engine weight of 241,000 lb, impressive tractive effort of 55,225 lb. J.R. Quinn photo The RRPA data base does not recognize the 0-10-0 wheel configuration so that's the reason it's listed as an "unknown" wheel configuration.
