Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Canadian Pacific 2816, named the Empress, is a 4-6-4 H1b Hudson used by the Canadian Pacific Railway in occasional excursion service. The 2816 is the only non-streamlined H1 Hudson remaining. Locomotive 2816 was one of ten H1b-class 4-6-4 Hudson built by the Montreal Locomotive Works in 1930. It was first assigned to the line between Winnipeg and Fort William, Ontario. Later, it was transferred to service between Windsor, Ontario and Quebec City, and finally it ran a commuter train between Montreal and Rigaud, Quebec. It made its last run on May 26, 1960. In 1963, the locomotive was sold to Monadnock, Steamtown & Northern Amusements Corp., Inc which evolved into the newly formed Steamtown in 1964.show more
