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...

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.
