A CP Van among many other CP Vans! CP Van 434207 was sitting in the Revelstoke van maintenance area along with many others and it was the one I chose to photograph. Little did I know that the RY Vans would not be around much longer. Another piece of history gone!

  1. This wasn’t actually one of the modern Angus vans, this was an older riveted-side steel van that was rebuilt with a newer Angus-style cupola. There were a number of these done from older vans – the rivets and round end roof profile are tells.

    IIRC, the 434200-series were vans assigned to coal-train service out west.

  2. Jacob Being the eagle eyed retired military person that I am I should have noticed the wheel sets before I posted the photograph. Anyways thanks for pointing it out! It just shows that all of the newer vans looked exactly the same at first glance but they were not.

  3. Didn’t realize the Angus vans rode on journal bearing wheels. Guess they reused them off the retired wooden vans.
