Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. 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 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. While No. 371 was scrapped in 1915, No. 374 was completely rebuilt in 1914 and continued in service until 1945. It was then cosmetically restored to look similar to its original 1886 appearance and put on display at Kitsilano beach. It remained there until 1983 when it was moved to a warehouse on Granville Island and received a new round of restoration work. No. 374 was put on display on the turntable at the renovated CPR Drake Street roundhouse during Expo 86.
