History and details about locomotive CP 2335, courtesy Ray Verdone of cprsteam.org

CPR stamped every bell with the locomotive number in which it was installed. One can often observe the renumbering history of locomotives reflected on the bell. In this case, the bell appears to have a very straight forward history. The bell was installed on this locomotive in September 1926 and stayed with it until it was scrapped in October 1957.

This locomotive was built by ALCO - The Locomotive & Machine Company of Montreal, later Montreal Locomotive Works (MLW), Montreal, Quebec, September 1926. Its builder's plate number was 66773. It entered CPR service as a brand new locomotive on that date (September 1926). It was scrapped October 1957 after 31 years and 1 months of service. Locomotive CP2335 was of class G3d.

Locomotive #2335 was one of a very few in that CPR experimented in the 1930's with installing "smoke deflectors" (see first photo). They tried them on 4 types of locos but only a few in each of the four classes. The theory according to Omer Lavallee's book 'Canadian Pacific Steam Locomotives' (courtesy of Railfare Enterprises) was: "...to direct air currents upward around the stack, when the locomotive was running at high speed, in order to lift the smoke and steam well above the engineer's line of vision". However the trains seldom achieved sufficient speed to be effective. Thus they were removed the next time the locos were shopped in the 1940's.

Bell dimensions: 12" high & 16" diameter at the rim, stem is 3" long and is 2 3/8" wide. Bell weighs approximately 110 lbs and the crate weighs approximately 45 pounds. Please contact for shipping estimate.

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.
