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 3,300 photographs, and stories associated with many of the locomotives, as well as the location and the current status of locomotives still in preserved.

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 and is a Not for Profit by any means.
