CN S1b Mikado
An order of (56) 2-8-2’s, designated “S1b” was built by the Canadian Locomotive Company for the Canadian Government Railways between 1917 & 1918. They were not considered “heavy” Mikados, but a larger boiler operated at 180psi, 63″ drivers, a max speed of 60mph & a total of 53,115 lb of tractive effort combined to make the S1b a very versatile locomotive. Because of the harsh sub-zero weather conditions they operated in, they were equipped with an All-Weather Enclosed cab. Their tenders included a coal bunker extension; bringing the total capacities to 17 tons of coal and 7200 gallons of water. In 1918, they merged into the Canadian National. All were retired by 1958.
