Canadian Pacific Power & the PVR - Hoods and FM's

Morning gang - this time we bore you with some hood units and the FM ( Fairbanks Morse) units that plyed the rails of the CPR.....


Mfg: Kato paint: Kato
Prototype: Builder: EMD/ HP: 2250/ Built: 1949
The CPR owned only 3 E8's and they spent the majority of their lives in eastern Canada and the northeastern US. The E's headed some of the most famous northeastern passenger trains but were deemed unsuitable for transcontinental service. This model is in the as delivered paint scheme in 1949


Mfg: Life Like Paint: Mike-O-Trains
Prototype: Builder: EMD/ HP: 2250/ Built: 1949
Only two of the 3 units received the Action Red paint as one was wrecked before painting. ( It's missing the back truck frame.. opps !)



Mfg: Model Power Paint: Model Power
Prototype: Builder: GMD/ HP: 1500/ Built: 1953
Model Power is the only one who makes an FP7A - and they were a very common unit for almost every passenger carrying road. The FP was slightly longer than the F units as they had the steam generators in them for heating the consist.


Mfg: Kato Paint: Mike-O-Trains
Prototype: Builder: GMD/ HP: 1500/ Built: 1951
The "B" units used by the CPR were standard F7B's


Mfg: Life Like Paint: Life Like Canada
Prototype: Builder: Canadian General Electric/ HP: 1500/ Built 1949
This Alco designed FA1 was used in both freight and passenger service by the CPR until well into the 1980's. Rugged and reliable, the FA's were painted in both the original Roman font Tuscan and grey; the script font and the Action red schemes.


Mfg: Life Like Paint: Life Like Canada
Prototype: Builder: Canadian General Electric/ HP: 1500/ Built: 1949
The "B" units were usually assigned to a single F unit and stayed coupled to them for long periods of time.



Mfg: Life Like Paint: Life Like Canada
Prototype: Builder: Canadian Locomotive Corp./ HP: 1600/ Built: 1952
The CLC built under licence the Consolidation Liner or CPA 16-4. It became known as the "C-Liner". Built with an opposed piston engine, the locomotives were ahead of their time, but were maintenance intensive and uncomfortable for their crews. Most CPR C Liners were used in the west and lived until the early 1970's.


Mfg: Life Like Paint: Life Like Canada
Prototype: builder: Canadian Locomotive Corp. / HP: 1600/ Built: 1952
B units were rare and they were perm. assigned to an A unit. Some C liners did receive Action red scheme paint in the early 1970's.


Mfg: Atlas paint: Atlas
Prorotype: Builder: Canadian Locomotive Corp/ HP: 3000/ Built: 1956
When delivered in 1956, the H 24-66 or "Trainmaster" was the single most powerful locomotive of its time. The Trainmaster was used as a mainline hauler and was designed by Fairbanks Morse to be a superior puller. The Trainmaster was used until the mid 1970's.

That's all for now - next we'll look at Road Freight units... the SD's !
