Tuesday Ten-Wheelers “Mystery” Streamlined Cab

January 5, 2011

Anybody astute enough of an observer to determine where and what railroad owned this handsome Vauclain compound 4-6-0 with a most unique streamlined cab and note the nameplate (!) on the locomotive, makes me suspect it was a Canadian railroad due to that being a classic British practice.

    Hey there,

    I got out Omar Lavalle’s “Canadian Pacific Steam Locomotives” and your mystery 10 -wheeler, #504 is listed as being build at Schenectady in Nov 1902, where it was assigned builders number 25751. Previously had road number 930. Class D6A and has 63″ drivers.

    In May, 1937 it was transfered to the Dominion Atlantic Railway, where it acquired the name “HALIFAX”. It was scraped in December, 1945.

    If you hadn’t mentioned the Canadian connection I wouldn’t have dragged out the books! Great site, btw!
