CPR Brass Steam Locomotive

Bell #5765

This locomotive was built by Canadian Pacific Railway Company, Angus Shops, Montreal, Quebec, February 1918. It was not given a builder's plate number. It entered CPR service as a brand new locomotive on that date (February 1918). It was scrapped January 1955 after 36 years and 11 months of service. Locomotive CP5765 was of class R3c.

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. It was installed on this locomotive when built in February 1918 and stayed with it until it was scrapped in January 1955.

#5765 was a Decapod (2-10-0), class R3c.  CPR built hundreds of Consolidations, Ten Wheelers and Pacifics, but only 35 of this class locomotive were built by the railway in their Angus Shops. An extremely rare bell.

This bell was purchased directly from Canadian Pacific Railway in 1976.  

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.
