The imposing silhouette of the powerful D-10 locomotive, its engine number clearly visible on the front of the boiler and on its distinctiveCPR half-moon headlight. Moving people and goods across Canada has been a challenge from the moment the first Europeans began settling on its eastern shore.
Those who chose to venture west disappeared into the wilderness for months, if not years. Even as rugged settlements gave way to cities and towns, traveling between them remained a time-consuming and arduous task-until the19th century when iron tracks began weaving their way across the continent. They lifted the isolation that plagued countless communities and revolutionized everyday life for Canadians. Never had it been easier to get a passenger or merchandise from here to there.
For three decades, more than one in seven locomotives was a D-10until they were gradually retired from revenue service between 1938 and 1960. The D-10 was a star for its uncomplicated and reliable design. It offered features that were typical of 19th-century engines while incorporating the latest innovations such as piston valves and simplified valve gear.The D-10 was also central to the research and development of CanadianPacific's superheater, an energy-saving device that became integral to railways across North America. A preserved D-10 (engine 999) can be seen at theCanadian Railway Museum (Exporail) in Saint-Constant (Quebec). It's easily identified by its distinctive CPR-designed half-moon headlight and is the final locomotive to be showcased in the popular Great Canadian Locomotives Series.
