Canadian Pacific No. 371 to 378
Canada | 1886 | 8 produced

The Locomotives numbered 371 through 378 were built in 1886 by the CPR's own Montreal workshops. Their area of application was the transcontinental railroad opened in 1887 on the section to the Pacific coast near Vancouver. Originally they had 69 inch drivers which were later reduced to 62 inches. It was number 374 that brought the first passenger train to Vancouver on May 23, 1887. While the rest of the class was retired between 1915 and 1929, the 374 was rebuilt in 1914 and served until 1945. It was then restored to its original condition, with modern components removed and the locomotive no longer operational. Today, the 374 resides in a pavilion in Vancouver.
