Somewhere in a book on the electrified sections of the Milwaukee Road through the Bitterroots and other mountains along the Rockies there is a pic of where they paralleled the Northern Pacific and caption mentions that NP's Z-something mallet, something like a 2-8-8-2, I'll have to dig out the book and look, was rated at only 600 tons on the 4% grade there.
That's six, just six, modern grain hoppers loaded, maybe even only 5.
