Notes:
1: The designator 45-ton should not necessarily imply weight. 44-tonners were a four-axle, four traction motor, dual engine center cab unit built to skirt the requirement that any engine weighing more than 45 tons needed to have a fireman. 45-ton became a designator of engines of similar design, but with only a single traction motor per truck. Given that these are of that design, but were built for private industrial railroads, the weight/crew requirements did not apply to them. So, for increased traction, most of the D&S's 45-ton engines initially weighed in at 50 tons or more.
