Hi maxsurber,
I have just run the tape measure over my 2-4-4-2 and the results are as follows:-
Knuckle front to knuckle front is 322 mm (plus a couple of mm each end for the uncoupling pin overhang)
Front of pilot to back of rear steps on tender is 310 mm
Centre of front pony wheel axle to centre of rear tender wheel axle is259 mm
The tender wheels are 13 mm diameter including flange, and11.4 mm at the tread
The front pony wheel is 11.2 mm diameter including the flange, and 9.2 mm at the tread
If you use the extending hole in the tender coupling bar, add 4.12 mm to the length measurements.
I hope this info helps.
I suspect you are working out turntable length requirements, and, if so, this should give you what you need.
Happy railroading.
RGS Goose.

Thank you very much RGS Goose for your quick answer. I think the 2442 has space on my turntable.
