Copyright Canadian Pacific Railway

You have found the CPR Steam Locomotive database. Though this site has been "up and running" since 2002 it is still a very much a "Work in Progress". The database currently holds some 8000 records which document the history and lifecycle, from construction to disposal, of all 3,257 steam locomotives the Canadian Pacific Railway operated since 1881. The site also contains over 1,100 photographs, and stories associated with many of the locomotives, as well as the location and the current status of locomotives still in preserved.

Since this site is built on a database, you can see many different views of the data. For example,lists of locomotives by year and month built or scrapped, by type or class, by builder, by owner and much more. This site intends to be a research tool and is available free of charge This is a "Not for Profit" website.
