Vintage Canadian Pacific Steam Locomotives
The construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway in the 1880s is inextricably linked with the settlement and development of Western Canada. Glenbow Museum has an extensive collection of more than 6,000 railway-related historic photographs, which document the building and operation of the Canadian Pacific Railway as well as other railways in the West. The locomotives in these photographs, many of which can be identified by their numbers, were photographed in Alberta and British Columbia. The photographs show the engines on the prairies and in the Rocky Mountains, in roundhouses, at stations, with their crews, and plowing their way through immense amounts of snow.
