loco weight?

Post by bambuko » Thu Oct 14, 2021 6:14 pm

Can someone please tell me what is the typical weight (ready to run with water, gas, rc gear, etc) of 16mm loco.

I am interested in the larger ones i.e. 0-6-0 or 0-6-2 ?
For example

The link for the Fowler says the loco is 3.4 Kg, I assume dry weight, water capacity is around 300 ml, so 300 gms, so wet weight will be around 3.7kg.
