About the C.P.R. Locomotive #2018

The Canadian Pacific Railway 0-6-0 class U3c switch engine was built in 1905 at C.P.R. Angus Shops in Montreal. Originally assigned the road number 2144, it was renumbered in 1912 as 6144. Much of its career with the C.P.R. was spent in the rail yards at Fort William, Ontario.

In 1934, this locomotive was scrapped by the C.P.R. and sold to the Canmore Mines Limited. As Canmore Mines #4, it was used to haul coal cars from the mine tipple to the C.P.R. main line at Canmore, Alberta. Over time, this little engine became affectionately known as the “Old Goat”.

When Canmore Mines Limited switched its train operations from steam to diesel power in 1964, this locomotive again became surplus and was donated to Heritage Park. The unused C.P.R. number 2018 was assigned in 1992 when the locomotive underwent partial restoration.
