The best I can do is off NS' diagram sheet for the 250001 and 250002, last updated was 1-22-1991, which states an average light weight of 143,650 pounds.

Then, a valid comparison can be made with the N&W curve reproduced in Col. Jeffries' book, and the curve Classic Trains published (on-line) in conjunction with their special issue on 4-8-4s.
