History and details about locomotive CP 5774, courtesy Ray Verdone of cprsteam.org

This locomotive was built by Canadian Pacific Railway Company, Angus Shops, Montreal, Quebec, April 1918. It was not given a builder's plate number. It entered CPR service as a brand new locomotive on that date (April 1918). It was scrapped May 1952 after 34 years and 1 months of service.

#5774 was a Decapod (2-10-0), class R3c.  Only 35 of this class locomotive were built by the CPR in their Angus Shops. An extremely rare bell.

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. In this case there is not too much of a history to be told. It appears the bell was installed when the locomotive was built in April 1918 where it remained until the locomotive was scrapped in May 1952.

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.
