    Does anyone have any figures on the boiler diameters (1500's vs. 4300's & 4400's)? The 43's and 44's boilers looked so much fatter, but I don't ever remember seeing any figures or dimensions.

    Thanks, Tom G.

    Thanks Karl--I guess your numbers would be inches and fractions thereof, correct?
