Description
With 65 engines, Canadian Pacific owned the second largest North American fleet. The first, delivered in 1929, were standard engines, but beginning in 1937 they were streamlined and used primarily for freight. Also referred to as 4-6-4 or Hudson locomotives, they had a stable riding engine. This was the locomotive used to carry King George VI across Canada in 1951. Thereafter, they became known as the Royal Hudsons.
