CN G16a Ten Wheeler
An order of (50) 4-6-0s numbered 1110-1160 was built by between 1912 and 1913 the Montreal Locomotive Works and delivered to the Canadian Northern Railway. They were classified as G16a and were assigned lighter branch line duties of shorter local mix freight and commuter service. They weighed in at 77 tons and sat on 57″ drivers. Having smaller drivers and (4) pilot wheels provided a much higher tolerance of the rougher track conditions found along the prairie branchlines they ran on. These engines ran at 180psi and were hand fired; producing 25,990lb of tractive effort. The G16a’s could be found all across the Canadian National System and lasted until the end of the steam era in the early 1960s.
Today: Only (2) of the original (50) G16a’s survive:
#1112 is on display at the Railway Museum of Eastern Ontario in Smiths Falls, Ontario, Canada
#1158 is on display at the Western Development Museum in North Battleford, Saskatchewan, Canada
CN G16a Ten Wheeler set includes: Engine, Tender, CN Coach and CN Wood Caboose
