It's difficult to match steam HP to diesel HP, but if they had a bigger, preferably 4WD or tracked tractor they wouldn't have ended up as a towed trench digger...

Orkses is never beaten in battle. If we wins we wins and if we dies we dies fightin' so it don't count as beat. Even if we runs away it means we can always come back for anuvver go, see!

I suspect adhesive weight also has something to do with it.  I'd put money down on the traction engine not only being heavier all told, but also having more weight taken on the driving axle. 

Persons intending to travel by open carriage should select a seat with their backs to the engine, by which means they will avoid the ashes emitted therefrom, that in travelling generally, but particularly through the tunnels, prove a great annoyance; the carriage farthest from the engine will in consequence be found the most desirable.
