was four or five tons heavier than the KC engines had been,
it weighed 18 tons. The load limit for axle weight on the 25lb
rail, according to formula was 12000 lbs. That was almost exactly
the driver axle weight of the 10 ton Portland Forney. It would
be harder on the track than numbers 1 and 2 had been, but the
little road couldn't afford a new engine right then, and those
standard Forneys were the only thing on the used engine market
at the time. None of the KC legends include any gripes about
No.3 being a track smasher.
