CP2398:

This locomotive was built by Canadian Locomotive Company, Kingston, Ontario, August 1942. Its builder's plate number was 2002.

_____________

CPR 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. In this case, the bell appears to have a very straight forward history in that it only has number 2399. The tag packed with this bell ambiguously identified it as 2398. However, upon closer examination, though marred, the last number is a 9 and not an 8. Since both locomotives were scrapped within three months of each other, it is quite possible that bell 2398 was also kept and the tags were accidentally switched.

The bell was installed on this locomotive when built in September 1942 and stayed with it until it was scrapped in September 1961.

#2399 was a Pacific type locomotive (4-6-2), Class G3g and was built for the CPR by the Canadian Locomotive Co. in Sept. 1942.

Bell dimensions: 12" high & 16" diameter at the rim.
