The first order of (20) locomotives were not streamlined, but the second order of (10), & third order of (6), both were designated for passenger service & were streamlined; matching the appearance of the 4-4-4 Jubilee & infamous 4-6-4 Royal Hudson. The final order of (6), classified T1c & numbered #5930-#5935, was received in 1949. These were the final standard gauge steam locomotives built for any Canadian Railway.
