The driving wheels have a diameter of 3ft. 9ins., and the tractive effort is 13,798lbs. The boiler pressure is 180lbs. to the sq. in., and the tender carries 2,000 gals, of water and four tons of coal. The engines are superheated and fitted with combined multiple valve throttles. The weight of the engine and tender, in working order, is 66 ¼ tons.
