Pat or anyone,
What is the tractive effort and engine weight of the #14 ten wheeler, I can find info on the #18, but little or nothing on the #14's statistics. Thanks for any help.....Jerry.

From the book Arcade and Attica Railroad by Edward A. Lewis:

#14, a 4-6-0 built by Baldwin in 1917, builders number 45083.
Dimension of cylinders: 19"x26", dimension of drivers: 58"

A booklet put out by the Western New York Railway Historical Society, Inc., Comin' on Strong-The Arcade & Attica Railroad also lists those same dimensions.

This locomotive was originally Escanaba and Lake Superior #14.

I know this isn't the data you requested but it's all I have. Possibly you could use the builder's number to obtain the desired information or find something based on it's E&LS heritage.

UPDATE: After a little Internet surfing (even with this crappy AOL search engine) I managed to find this:

Hope it's what you're looking for.

I am toying with the idea of building a copy of #14 in 1/8 scale for use as a live steam engine. Does anyone know if published plans are out there for this engine, or for one of its sister engines? I don't have any Baldwin books, but maybe someone else does. Help!

On Locomotive #14, In my notes, I show it as Tractive Effort 24,800#. Weight of Loco 142,500# (w/o tender), tender 115,000#. She was Baldwin Class 10-32-D, 19x26 cylinders, 58" drivers, built to operate at 180psi.

18 is 28,400# tractive effort. Loco only weighs 120,000# and tender was 60,000#. 18x24 Cylinders
