History and details about locomotive CP 2200, courtesy Ray Verdone of cprsteam.org

This locomotive was built by Canadian Pacific Railway Company, Angus Shops, Montreal, Quebec, April 1906. Its builder's plate number was 1434.

CP2200 was originally built as number CP1100. It entered CPR service as a brand new locomotive on that date (April 1906).

CP1100 was changed December 1910: - CP1100 was renumbered to CP1000.

CP1000 was changed September 1913: - CP1000 was renumbered to CP2200.

CP2200 was changed July 1927: - Cylinder dimensions were changed from 21x28 to 21.25x28 inches. - The locomotive was reclassified from G1a to G1p. It was scrapped May 1961 after 55 years and 1 months of service. Locomotive CP2200 was of class G1a.

#2200 was a Pacific type locomotive (4-6-2), Class G1a and was built for the CPR by the Canadian Locomotive Co. in April 1906.  This bell was mounted on the very first Pacific type locomotive built by CPR.

Bell not numbered, but from CP2200.

_____________

CPR usually stamped every bell with the locomotive number on which it was installed. One can often observe the renumbering history of locomotives reflected on the bell. Unfortunately this bell has NO NUMBER anywhere stamped on it. This is very odd and one can only imagine what circumstances led to this oddity. Both the included packing tag and crate stencil named this bell as coming from CP2200. This bell would appear to have come from the very first Pacific locomotive built or acquired by the CPR.

Although the locomotive was built much earlier (April 1906 as CP1100), it is possible the bell was never stamped at that time. Neither was it stamped when the engine was renumbered to CP2200. This bell went unstamped until the locomotive was scrapped in May 1961.

Bell dimensions: 12" high & 16" diameter at the rim. Bell will be shipped in original wooden crate as delivered by CPR in the 1970's. Second box will contain the yoke assembly, photos of locomotive (if available), history sheet together with an assembly DVD. . Please contact for shipping estimate. Extra charges for customs will apply if a US buyer.

Please note that these bells have been lightly polished but most may have some nicks etc. due to decades of use especially around the bottom rims of the bells.
