CN K1d Pacific
Built in 1905, the K1d 4-6-2 light pacific was the early 20th Century answer to Canada’s growing passenger service needs. They we’re built by the Locomotive and Machine Works of Montreal Limited, which was the Canadian branch of ALCO. They were originally built to pull very fast passenger trains for the Intercolonial Railway, but in 1915 became apart of the CN Roster when the Canadian National absorbed the Intercolonial Railway. The K1d sat on 72″ drivers, weighed in at 346,000 lbs and produced 29155 lbs of tractive effort. They were utilized into the 1950s and were eventually phased out by newer diesels. All were retired by 1955.
