Yes that is a pretty impressive load on 101A If you say 15 tons/wagon, then you are looking at a 150 tons plus load, probably closer to 200 tons being moved by a light 0-4-0 locomotive.
Well, let's have a look at a reprint of an H. K. Porter catalog from early to early/mid 1900s.
Pages 114 and 115, a little 8x14 cylinder size, 26 inch drivers, plantation style 0-4-0 side tanker with 24,000 lbs weight in working order and 4,680 lbs tractive effort
Rated 705 tons on absolute level.
Just 270 tons on a 1/2% grade.
Merely 85 tons on 2% grade.

See y'all later, Forrest.
Screw the rivets, I'm building for atmosphere
