CPR Steam Locomotives



 

I like most Canadians over 50 have a fascination with
railways and steam engines in particular. 
I decided to put together this page showing some of the 
CPR steam locomotives that serviced this great country of ours.

 

 
These pictures came for a mainly Internet news groups and are public domain.
My thanks to the BC Archive for the use of their photographs.
I would like to invite any one that has a favorite CPR steam locomotive picture or
a Web Page that they would like added to this page to E mail me. 

If anyone can supply additional information on the
locomotives shown on this page I would appreciate it.

The official poster by Dennis Budgen, a Calgary illustrator, produced for THE GREAT CPR EXPOSITION at the Glenbow Museum, 1983-1984. It measures 22" x 29" and is framed on one of the walls of Massey’s residence.
The limited edition poster is now valued at £30 (about $50) at a UK specialty poster shop. http://www.heatons-of-tisbury.co.uk/posters29.html

The Exposition assembled many original artifacts from the Canadian Pacific Railway Archives,  and it was a combination of 3 events: a public viewing of artifacts, launching of a hardcover book (Trail of Iron: The CPR and the Birth of the West, 1880-1930) and conferences. All three were blockbusters.

The organizers gave particular attention to the origin, construction and operation of the CPR in Western Canada from 1885 to 1930. Spread over 8500 square feet of gallery space, were track laying tools, many dioramas, period photographs and original CPR documents including the original letter of William Van Horne, by which he accepted the CPR presidency, 

Of particular interest were museum-quality artifacts, built by local model railroaders. One group spent thousands of hours recreating prairie landscape; while another group operated a model railway setup and another manned a telegraph station with messages sent back and forth. 

One of the displays was an 85-meter (about 250 ft.) replica of the Stoney Creek Bridge (east of Revelstoke BC), as it looked in 1886. The bridge supports on the display were 130 cm (about 5 ft.) high. Just around the corner from the Stoney Creek Bridge one almost walked into the interior of a mountain snowshed. Built three-quarters of its full size by the Alberta Pioneer Railway Association, it showed two section men aboard a hand car, their lantern providing the only light in the darkness. Other galleries contained full-scale replicas of a country railway station, a sleeping car, and the setting of a table in a railway dining car (with mirrors at either end giving the illusion of several tables).

Only portions of THE GREAT CPR EXPOSITION (mostly photographs and some less-rare artifacts) went on tour afterwards but the event attracted thousands of visitors during its run. Many visited two or even three times. More at: http://journals.hil.unb.ca/index.php/MCR/article/view/17173/22813

High Friends. I have a special request.
I received the following series of pictures from a visitor to this site. She made a request to see if I could find out any more information on any of these pictures.
"I am going through old family photos from British Columbia (Rossland, New Westminster, Steveston) from c1890s-1910s.  I have quite a few that I can't place (and I can't read the engine numbers!)." If you have any information on these pictures you can use this email link to contact me

Today and Yesterday
Horse and Buggies were slowly fading into history but they didn't give up easily
The best can figure out is that this is a CPR Train on a Trans-Canada run because it has 2 baggage cars.
Local trains would only have one. It also appears to be a Mogul type loco.

The first CP train in Lloydeminster AB, 1926
This picture was submitted by Patricia Lawrence, Camrose Alberta and she wanted to know where the train arrived from and what other information I had on it,
I have gathered the following information on this picture.

Mr. D. C. Coleman, Vice-president of the C.P.R., was at the throttle of the engine when she steamed gracefully in; but soon made his appearance on the observation platform of the beautiful new engine (2635) finely decorated and 12 fine coaches not including Coleman's private car.' So wrote the reporter in the August 12, 1926 edition of The Lloydminster Times. (CP 2635 started it's life as CP 1235 and was renumbered before 1926. It was similar to CP 2205 Pacific Class which is shown below (JMD))
The train in the photograph is the first CPR train into Lloyd with a number of Colonist Sleeping Cars at the front with Barr Colonists on board. The train has arrived from Saskatoon by way of Wilkie, Saskatchewan.
The car ASSINIBOINE was assigned to Winnipeg at that time. The grain elevators on the left are on the CNR north line formerly the Canadian Northern main line to Edmonton.
The CPR line from Lloydminster west to Willingdon was completed shortly there afterwards connecting with the line running from Vegraville north to Willingdon and then west to South Edmonton formerly Strathcona. The sister car to the ASSINIBOINE was the RUPERTSLAND. Both business cars were converted from parlors cars that were originally built as dining cars. The RUPERSTLAND survives today at Heritage Park in Calgary as car number 5.
The ASSINIBOINE was bought a number years back and went south to the USA and sits on some rich farmers estate.
The rail line Vegraville-Willingdon-South Edmonton was chartered as the Swift Current Northwesterly branch and was an uncompleted line that was to run between Swift Current, Saskatchewan and Edmonton, Alberta. The rail line Swift Current to Empress, was built under the same charter. Empress, like Lloydminster straddles the Alberta-Saskatchewan border. Portions of the line were completed between Youngstown and Coronation and between Coronation and Alliance with a few miles of grading northwest from Empress. The CPR was to have running rights over the CNR Oyen to Youngstown and the CNR running rights over the CPR Youngstown to Alliance. The CPR lines Youngstown to Alliance were lifted in 1952, with the short section Coronation to Bulwark surviving until 1962...
These lines were apart of the prairie rail networked developed and constructed during the 1920's at the height of the Beatty-Thornton branch-line wars unique to western Canada.
I've not seen a photo of the front of the train, but this full picture is quite common and can be found in the archives of most
museums in the west.

This could have been a special train to celebrate the opening of the line, or it could have been the first scheduled train with business cars at the rear as well as extra coaches for the celebration. Business car Assiniboine shown I believe was then the car assigned to vice president 
of Western Lines at Winnipeg. The present car Assiniboine was built in 1929 to replace it in that role, and this car was then renamed Metapedia and sent east. It was later assigned to Atlantic Region and ultimately sold to someone in Oklahoma. The identical car Rupertsland was then also assigned to Winnipeg (to the General Manager or to other senior officials) and was later the British Columbia
and Pacific on the Pacific Region at Vancouver, then car 5 at Edmonton, and is now at Heritage Park in Calgary. Both cars were built as wooden dining cars, Assiniboine in 1903 and Rupertsland in 1902, with ten dining tables. The four 10-table cars of 1902-03 became obsolete because the next year CP started building 12-table cars and built or bought over 90 of them in the next ten years. So in 1917 CP converted them to high capacity parlor cars and in 1919 two were again converted to business cars. During the 1920s they got steel underframes and side sheathing.

You can see aspects of their history clearly. The first side window at the rear was probably added during the conversion to business car, 
when the washroom, bar, equipment locker etc were stripped out and the open platform added. The next five windows were part of the dining room. Today the first two are for the lounge and the next four are for the corridor beside the bedrooms. Opposite the third window is a standard Pullman-type compartment (with some additions), which has two small berth windows taking up the same space as the big picture window. Opposite the fourth and sixth windows are bedrooms for the senior employees. Opposite the fifth window adjacent to the corridor 
is a public toilet and shower, while beyond this are two toilets, one for each of the two bedrooms. Each of these has a single berth window, which together look the same as the berth windows for the compartment. 

The seventh and eighth windows on this side are for the present dining room, the next two small windows are for the staff bedroom, and the two at the front are for the kitchen. All of these are in the space originally used for the much larger dining car kitchen. The kitchen itself 
was on the near side and had the usual jumble of small windows. On the opposite side were originally four picture windows along the corridor, same size as those in the dining room. When the car became a parlor car it seems likely similar windows were installed on the near side where the kitchen had been. (There are no known photos or drawings of these cars.) Then when the car was changed again to a business 
car, the seventh and eighth windows on each side were retained for the new dining room. The ninth window on this side was changed to a
pair of berth windows for the crew's room. The two new kitchen windows were either installed at that time, or may already have existed 
as a service area for the parlor car. On the opposite side the ninth window is the same as the other picture windows, and the tenth was shortened at the front to accommodate a Baker heater. (Possibly this window had been modified earlier for parlor service. 
We may never know.)

The third to last car looks like a wooden business car, which I would guess was the Saskatchewan District General Superintendent's or the Saskatoon Division Superintendent's car. Likely the former, as superintendent's cars were generally smaller in those days. It should be possible to work out what the "Saskatchewan" of that day looked like. It would have lost that name and been moved to another assignment in 1930 when the present "Saskatchewan" was built. The second-last car could be a 10-compartment sleeping car, because I can't figure out what else it could be. All the cars ahead as far as I can make out appear to be coaches.

For CP to get to Lloydminster The line goes West from Saskatoon through Wilkie Sask. and on to Lloydminster.
The portion of the line from Wilkie to Lloydminster was built in 1926. The tracks from Saskatoon to Lloydminster are still in use today.

Going West from Lloydminster the portion between Lloydminster & Clandonald was built  in 1927. The portion between Clandonald & willingdon was built in 1928. The portion between Willingdon & Edmonton was built in 1929

At one time one could ride from Saskatoon to Edmonton without changing trains. At this time the tracks between Lloydminster 
and a location just north of Edmonton are no longer in place. They were removed a few years ago. The CP still has a well used 
line between Calgary & Edmonton.

As a side note there was a branch line from Willingdon South to Vegreville. This line was abandoned in 1978/79

And just for information overload there is A CP line through Camrose AB. It probably starts in Moose Jaw Sask. & goes through
Hardisty AB to Wetaskiwin AB. At Wetaskiwin the line would join the North/South CP line between Edmonton & Calgary.

Jim Booth

Looking through my CPR employee timetable collection, the earliest I have is from January 1925, and the line had not been built yet, 
I did have one from 1946 that shows the passenger trains No. 63 & No. 64 running daily except Sundays between Edmonton, South Edmonton, to Lloydminister a distance of 176.7 miles. I will keep digging around to see what else I can find out. When I get more mobile.
I will have to make a trip sometimes to Calgary to visit the Glenbow Museum Archives, and maybe 
I can find some more information there.

CPR Class At 4-4-0 # 374
Engine No. 374 was the steam engine which pulled the first transcontinental train to arrive in Vancouver, arriving on May 23, 1887. This was a year after its sister Engine No. 371 brought the first Canadian Pacific Railway train to cross Canada into Port Moody. No. 374 was built by the CPR in 1886 and was one of eight similar 4-4-0 steam locomotives built that year in the Montreal shops.

A Brief History of the Canadian Pacific Railway


Canada's confederation on July 1, 1867 brought four of eastern provinces together to form a new country, Canada. In order to accomplish this Nova Scotia and New Brunswick were promised a railway to link them with the two Central Canadian provinces, Quebec and Ontario.

Manitoba joined confederation in 1870. Then British Columbia, on the west coast, was enticed to join the new confederation in 1871, but it too was promised a rail link to the rest of Canada to be built within 10 years.
The railway's early construction was filled with controversy, so much so that it was responsible for toppling the Conservative government of John A. Macdonald in 1873. By the time Macdonald was returned to power in 1878, the massive project was seriously behind schedule and in danger of never being completed.
To try and save the project Macdonald had a group of Scottish Canadian businessmen formed in October 21, 1880 to build a transcontinental railway.

The Canadian Pacific Railway Company was incorporated February 16, 1881, with George Stephen as its first president. 
The 1881 construction season did not go well and the railway's chief engineer and general superintendent was fired after building only 131 miles of track. Syndicate member and director James Jerome Hill suggested William Cornelius Van Horne was the man who could get the job done and as things turned out he was.
Van Horne was lured from the United States to become CPR's general manager and to oversee construction of the transcontinental railway over the Prairies and through the mountains.
Van Horne boasted he would build 500 miles of main line railway in his first year. 
He came close to that but considering the floods that delayed the start of the 1882 construction season, 418 miles of main line and 110 miles of branch line track-laying was quite the feat. This made the vision of a transcontinental railway much more of a reality. 

On Nov. 7, 1885, the eastern and western portions of the Canadian Pacific Railway met at Craigellachie, B.C., where Donald A. Smith drove the last spike. The cost of construction almost broke the syndicate, but within three years of the first of the transcontinental trains leaving Montreal and Toronto for Port Moody started to put the railway's financial house in order and it allowed the CPR to start paying dividends again.

By 1889, the railway extended from coast to coast. The railway had expanded to include a wide range of related and unrelated businesses. A trend that continued for many years.
CPR had been involved in land settlement as early as 1881. 
They also erected telegraph lines right alongside the main transcontinental line, transmitting its first commercial telegram in 1882.
In that same year the CPR went into the express shipment business by the acquisition of the Dominion Express Company.
CPR started building some of its own steam locomotives as early as 1883.
It would later build its own passenger cars, making it second only on the continent to the Pullman Company of Chicago, Illinois. 
By 1883 the CPR had steamships on the Great Lakes and expanded into chartered ships on the Pacific Ocean in 1886.
In 1891 it launched its own Pacific fleet. By 1893 it was in the paddle wheelers in British Columbia's interior and moved out to the coast in 1901. A move to the Atlantic Ocean only seemed natural. This happened in 1903.

The famous CP Hotels had started in 1886 because Van Horne thought it would make good business sense to have a tourist trade set up in The Canadian Rockies and elsewhere.
These tourists of course would travel on his railway.

The CPR discovered natural gas on the Prairies in 1886. Quite by accident, while digging a well to get water for its steam locomotives, the CPR crews stumbled across natural gas. 
This location became Alderson, Alberta. 

One of the final major ventures undertaken by the CPR was forming Canadian Pacific Airlines by amalgamating 10 northern bush plane companies.

The CPR has had a hand in many other ventures. Some of these are abattoirs, bus transportation, containers and pallets, forestry, foundries, insurance, irrigation, mines and minerals, newsreels, oil, pulp and paper, radio broadcasts, supply farms, trucking, waste management, even bottled spring water.
Yes they were and still are a varied company.
 

The CPR acquired the US owned SOO Line line in the late 1880s.
"The Minneapolis, Sault Ste. Marie and Atlantic Railway Company was organized and incorporated by William Drew Washburn, Thomas Lowry, Clinton Morrison, C. M. Loring, W. W. Eastman, Charles Pillsbury, and others in September, 1883, to construct a line from Minneapolis through Wisconsin to Sault Ste. Marie. The first train left Minneapolis for Sault Ste. Marie in January, 1888. The Minneapolis and Pacific Railway Company was chartered in 1884 to build westward and by 1886 had reached into Dakota Territory. The first board of directors included W. D. Washburn and Thomas Lowry. Two other lines, the Aberdeen, Bismarck and Northwestern (which Lowry controlled by 1888) and the Minneapolis and St. Croix railway companies were also controlled by the milling interests and were component parts of the developing rail system.

Later in the 1880s the millers needed additional financing for both construction and operational purposes. They were able to get it from financiers associated with the Canadian Pacific Railway Company, Montreal, who thereby gained controlling interest in the four small lines. They demanded as a condition the consolidation of the four lines into the Minneapolis, St. Paul & Sault Ste Marie Railway Company (M.St.P.&S.S.M.). Thomas Lowry was the first president of the new 781-mile line, and the Canadian Pacific owned more than half of the stock. The Canadian Pacific also purchased the Duluth, South Shore & Atlantic Railway Company in 1888, giving them an entry into Duluth."

CPR 3001 Chinook

This picture was taken by J. Norman Lowe, date unknown
The semi-streamlined Jubilee locomotive 3001, a unique 4-4-4 wheel arrangement, served the
CPR Calgary to Edmonton passenger route from 1936 to 1955 except for a few years during the 
Second World War when heavier locomotives were required to haul longer trains carrying troops
to training centres across the country and to ocean ports.
For more information on this locomotive see this site http://www.forthjunction.com/3001.htm

CPR 3001 Chinook

Canadian Pacific introduced 'The Chinook' in 1936 on the Calgary-Edmonton line through Red Deer as a new 'high speed' passenger train. It was headed by 4-4-4 semi-streamlined Jubilee F2a class locomotive no. 3001, 
one of only five of this class ever built, designed specifically for fast inter-city passenger service. The train was one hour faster between the two cities than conventional passenger trains at the time, including the daily 'Eskimo/Stampeder' trains and two other intercity trains, one of which was an over-nighter. Except during the war years when heavier locomotives were required,
'The Chinook' ran until 1955 when it was replaced by the Budd Dayliner. 

Unfortunately, none of the F2a class survived the scrap yard but two of 20 F1a class of Jubilees (similar but significantly different) survived -- one currently at the Canadian Railway Museum in Quebec and one at Steamtown in Pennsylvania. F1a Jubilees were occasionally seen in Red Deer on their way to Edmonton where they ran the passenger line to Lloydminster.

Jubilee 3001, at speed on the Calgary - Edmonton run,
either for the "Eskimo", northbound out of Calgary in 
the morning and the "Stampeder" southbound in the afternoon. The trip included 22 stops along the 194 mile
line and took 5 hours and 15 minutes, an hour faster
than conventional steam locomotives. A complete 
consist was only a maximum of about five cars, the locomotive being too light to haul much more than that.

The locomotive was named "Jubilee" to commemorate
the 50th anniversary of CPR passenger service.
Only 5 were ever built.

CPR Locomotive 29 was built in 9/1887 (b/n 1065). It is
now owned by the Canadian Railroad Historical 
Association (CRHA) . No 29 was preserved and even
used to pull it's Salem and Hillsborough (S&H) tourist
train (Hillsborough NB) at the ripe age of 102. In
September 1994, the locomotive was damaged at the
S&H site. The burned out locomotive hulk and tender 
were shipped to Winnipeg's Weston Shops in the summer 
of 1996 and meticulously restored to their former glory for permanent display in front of CPR's Corporate
Headquarters in Gulf Canada Square, 401 - 9 Avenue 
SW; a few steps from the Calgary Tower and Palliser 
Hotel, where she sits in a small park adjacent to the
sidewalk. On Sept. 9 1996, CPR president and CEO 
Robert J. Ritchie rededicated the steam locomotive,
following the official move of the Corportate
Headquarters, from Windsor Station in Montreal to
Calgary. CPR moved their HQ to Calgary because most 
of its business is in the Canadian West and Central US.

On  August 2, 1975 (following the visit advertised on the poster and proceeding further north), ex-CPR Consolidation
No. 3716 hauled the British Columbia Provincial Museum train from Chetwynd to Dawson Creek. 
The train included two flatcars with live steam equipment, 
a power car, three display coaches, and the BCR official
car Northern Summit which was renamed Peace River for
the occasion. The train remained on display at
Dawson Creek until August 4, whereupon it returned to Chetwynd. 

This picture was submitted by Massey F. Jones
BCR 3716 leading the British Columbia Museum Train in 1975. 
A snapshot photo taken by a friend at an unknown location, now part of my collection.

The locomotive was originally built in 1912 Montreal Locomotive Works as a coal-burning locomotive #3916,
Class N2c. 3916 was rebuilt in 1929 and given a new class and number, N2b #3716.
Her home for many years was the Kootenays, and  she ran many miles in the Crowsnest area of southern British Columbia / Alberta. 
Later in her career 3716 was converted from coal to oil. Having been saved by the scrapper's torch, she went to 
the City of Port Coquitlam in 1966 for display. 

Purchased by the BC Government, 3716 was restored back to operating condition by 1975 at CPR's Drake Street 
shops and worked on the Provincial Museum train touring the entire province (photo) 
The also locomotive starred in many movies and commericals
over the years including "The Grey Fox", a movie
about Bill Miner, and "The Journey of Natty Gann", a Walt Disney Production. 
3716 also operated as a backup to the "Royal Hudson" 2860
for awhile on excursion service Vancouver-Squamish,
until its operating career on BC Rail ended in April 2001.

Presently, 3716 operates as "The Spirit of Summerland"on
the The Kettle Valley Steam Railway, near 
Summerlanc BC. http://www.kettlevalleyrail.org/ 

Numerous clips of the 3716 can be viewes on YouTube:

While CPR 1201 was preserved for excursion service 
after the demise of steam on the CPR, research

CN6060 and CP2860 on shop track Jasper c1988

For what was called  "The Great Steam Circle tour of 1988" permission was granted  The Rocky Mountain Rail Society to operate CN 4-8-2 6060 and BC 4-6-4 2860 over the CN from Vancouver east to Jasper, some time after the 6060 
had taken over from the 2860 on the Vancouver-Squamish runs during the Royal Hudson's overhaul  in 
North Vancouver. 
One of these trips through a BCR tunnel  at Mile 32 of
the Squamish Sub  is documented on my Tunnels page. http://yourrailwaypictures.com/Tunnels/ 

A grand party had been planned for the occasion at Jasper for the Grand Homecoming but the pair arrived at 2 am on October 22, 1988 and everything was fairly well scrubbed. Those who remained assembled around the locomotives, which were subsequently watered and fueled. 

This picture shows both locomotives later on a Jasper yard track that morning, giving one last salute in front of about 400 railfans. The 6060 was then uncoupled and wyed onto another track, staying at Jasper until towed within CN
freight consist to the Cominco plant in southeast Calgary, before operating in Stettler Alberta,  with the Alberta
Prairie Railway Excursions on special occasions, such as Canada Day.

Dave had the following to say about these pictures
"CPR 2370 was my grandfather WilmurJohn Wilsons
last locomotive. He was with CP for 44 years retiring 
the year I was born. CPR 1234 was either his or 
my fathers. No one to ask. Mighty not have been either.  3001 is just a picture."

Here's a CPR locomotive that's never been on CPR tracks, except perhaps to be transported.
"CPR 6269" Lima-built  0-6-0 locomotive started life in 
1944 and joined the US Army in 1946 as their 4076, before 
coming to the Pacific Coast terminals in 1964, then to a private owner in December 1967 and finally to 
Calgary's Heritage Park that year.  The Park ran her as "CPR 6269" from 1967 to 1969, before repainting her to 
her current "CPR 2024", along with sister "CPR 2023",
an ALCO  0-6-0 locomotive with about the same Army
and civilian history but built two years earlier in 1942

putting them in storage on this track that they called the 'emergency track'. G2 2500 had come up here from the
DAR in Nova Scotia and was a hand-bomber.
The 4 or so G5's behind all had stokers. 2500 left here for scrap on Wedneesday, December 9th, 1959 behind
RS-18 8734 on #74, the 'east wayfreight'.
All the G5's were returned to service later in December due to a diesel power shortage, and heavy snowfalls requiring snowplows.

The first "Mikado" type locomotives on the
Canadian Pacific Railway arrived in 1909 and were
built by the Montreal Locomotive Works. These
locomotives designated as Class P1n were given road numbers in the 5200 series. Between 1909 and 1914 the Montreal Locomotive Works, the Canadian Locomotives Company and the Canadian Foundry Company built 
sixty-five "Mikados" for the Canadian Pacific. 
They were designated as Class P1n and carried road numbers 5200 through 5264. They had 63" diameter
drivers, 22" x 32" cylinders, a 215 psi boiler pressure,
they exerted 44,927 pounds of tractive effort and each weighed 271,000 pounds. The firebox was 214 square 
feet and included 25 square feet of arch tubes . The evaporative heating surface was 3,116 square feet and 
with the superheater the combined heating surface 
was 3,976 square feet.

The following pictures are a series of the DAR (Dominion Atlantic Railway
that was a subsidiary of the CPR and ran in parts of Nova Scotia until 
it operated its last four trains on Friday, August 26, 1994, just 36 days 
short of one hundred years. These pictures are a sampling of the locomotives that were operated by the DAR.
These pictures were posted on the facebook page"Hants Count and Beyond"

 
There were times when the CPR would run it's own 
locomotives on the DAR line.

The Royal Hudson

When King George visited Canada in 1939 he traveled on CPR and CNR trains. 
When he traveled on CP track his train was headed by CP Hudson class engines. 
When his train traveled on CN tracks it was headed by a streamlined Northern class.There is a photo on my CNR web site of one of them. It's trimmed with a lovely
blue color with a crown on the front. # 6400. The Hudsons where sort of a wimpy engine compared to the Northerns, but they where a bit faster. The Northerns where restricted
to a speed of 85 MPH, where as the Hudsons where allowed to travel at 90 MPH. CP in the days of steam always had sort of small power compared to other North American 
railways. The Hudsons got there name because the where designed for the New York Central RR.The Hudson river you know. I don't know why the CNs Northerns aren't
named Royal Notherns?

Canada Jim took this pictures of CPR 927 on the
Lac Du Bonnett sub:
He stuck his head up thru the cab vent and took pics of 
coming and going... note the water hose spraying the coal in
the tender to keep down the dust. Looking back along the boxcars,
the combine coach and caboose are approximately at the elevator. 
The forward view shows the smokestack ( they called me
clearstack Shep ) Or I called me clearstack Shep.

 
 
 
 

 

The following was submitted by Kevin C. Dawson.
Tyndall, Manitoba. 
 It adds a nice bit of history to the pictures that were submitted
by Jim Sheppard in Dec, 2007.

These pictures were taken a little over ½ a mile east of the elevator
and road crossing in Tyndall, Manitoba.
CPR 927 is heading west through Tyndall  towards East Selkirk. 
The track to the left is a mile long passing siding and the loco is 
beside the switch allowing access to the siding.
The Tyndall elevator was built in 1920 with an annex added to 
the west side of the structure in 1960. A siding comes off the 
passing track to service the elevator.
  I don't know if you are aware of the history of this stretch of track. 
It was part of the CPR main line until 1907 when the 
CPR built a track east of Winnipeg
To Molson, Manitoba. ( Twelve miles east from where this
photo was taken.) The newly built track cut out eight miles to 
Winnipeg from Molson.
The track was laid from East Selkirk, Man. going east to
Fort William/Port Arthur. At Port Arthur the track was working
its way west. The track was laid starting In 1874 as a public works
project by the Mackenzie government following the defeat of
MacDonald in 1873 from the Pacific Scandal. This track is mentioned 
in   Either "The National Dream" or "The Great Railway"
written by Pierre Berton. I believe the Chapter was called
"A Railroad to Nowhere". The rail was to cross the 
Red River at Selkirk and run in a Northwest direction to 
Dauphin, Manitoba and on to the Yellowhead Pass. It was the 
preferred route of Fleming, who wanted to avoid Winnipeg because
of springtime flooding. Long story short, the track 
did not cross to Selkirk and went south from East Selkirk to
cross the Red via the Louise Bridge in Winnipeg. The sub was 
abandoned in 1982 and the rails were ripped up in 1987. 
This was a particularly sad moment in Tyndall's history for me.
My father lived two miles east of Tyndall and walked down the
tracks to school every day starting in 1935. The school was a 
couple of hundred feet north of the grade crossing. He had to
walk four miles a day there and back but said it was easy in
comparison to other kids. He said that he never had to walk in
the mud and the track was always clear of snow from passing
trains in the winter time. 

  I grew up in Tyndall and when I saw this photo I recognized the
location immediately. It brought back many memories. I was born in
'59 so I missed the closing of steam on the sub. My first memories 
of the yard in Tyndall involve SW units. The geeps took over in the 
70's. Scroll down from CPR 927 to the picture of Jim taking a picture
through the cab vent over the front of the locomotive and smokestack.
The locomotive is facing west at the west end of the passing
siding in Tyndall.
The little shed on the left side of the locomotive housed the
gas car and trailer plus track tools.
My Uncle was a section man and this is where he came to work 
everyday. He lived a quarter mile from this location. He didn't burn
any fuel going to work like I do now. One mile west from this 
location was another mile long passing siding and a spur servicing
a limestone quarry that provided the limestone for the 
Parliament Buildings in Ottawa. (Tyndall Stone)
The picture to the right, taken by Jim through the cab vent facing 
the rear of the train, shows the west side of the Tyndall elevator
before the annex was built in 1960.  To the left near the back of the 
train, through the coal dust you can barely make out the station 
and freight shed. I don't remember seeing the station (through my
eyes before it was dismantled) but I do remember the freight shed. 
It was taken down sometime around 1970.
  I hope that you find this as interesting as I do. The yard has been
turned into a park. The right of way west to the next mile crossing is
now a road and the right of way east of the elevator and road
crossing has all grown in and is a quad/sled trail.  Sadly, only
the elevator remains.

This picture of CPR 78 was submitted by David L. Spargo, Honolulu,
HI, David had the following to say about this picture.
"I would like to share a picture that my wife came across whilst 
doing family genealogy. The picture is of old CPR engine # 78. 
Pictured are her Grandfather, Clarence Wilson, his wife 
Jennie Phalen Wilson, and Stuart Wilson, aged two. 
The picture was taken at Winnipeg about 1906. 
Clarence was an engineer for CPR from about 1902 to 1939. 
His usual run was freights from Winnipeg to Brandon, and return.
 A train buff located the following information about engine # 78: 
The engine was built in May, 1882, at the 
Rhode Island Locomotive Works. The engine number was 
changed to # 173 in 1907, and again to # 118 in 1913.
The engine was scrapped in 
Winnipeg in 1930."
