How much does a Consolidation weigh?

I'm scabbing together a quick article for the N trak steam annual on the nose job I gave my Bachmann Consolidation...  I also added a bunch of weight, but I never put it on a scale for a "before and after"...

Does someone have a stock engine they can weigh so I can do a little comparison?

Thanks.

if it's lighter than a duck, get the matches ready...

Fortunately the less social Atlas forum has produced the answer I sought.

I always welcome cross references, though.

Thanks

Was it as much as a coconut on a lanyard?
