Two different examples of well-known Canadian Pacific steam power are shown in another photo of power displayed at CP's Lambton Yard during a NMRA Niagara chapter convention visit (after a ride up from Toronto to Lambton via Leaside). CP H1d Royal Hudson 2858 (built by MLW in 1937, formerly assigned out west in Calgary) sits parked facing D10h 1092 (built by CLC in 1913)in Lambton Yard.
The stylish semi-streamlined Royal Hudsons were built for hauling premier mainline passenger trains, but as the transition from steam to diesel progressed in the mid-1950's they were downgraded to hauling freight and commuter trains. CP's D10 class of 4-6-0's were well-known as jack-of-all-trades engines, useful in branchline, local, mainline and helper service hauling both freight and passenger trains.

  1. I don’t understand how a torch could be taken to a “Royal Hudson”.
