Description:
This multipressure locomotive was designed in Montreal at Montreal Locomotive works in 1928. These locomotives were assigned road numbers 5900 through 5919. These were part of the Selkirks, a name chosen for then range of Rockies they travelled and crossed. Exhaust steam was mixed with 250 psi pressure steam from the main boiler to feed two outside cylinders. High maintenance costs offset benefits and was scrapped in late 1930's.
