Year Information: The fifth locomotive in the Class, 'Canadian Pacific' left Eastleigh Works in December 1941 but did not enter traffic until January 1942 continuing in service until the end of 1964. Rebuilt in 1959 and rescued for preservation in 1973, this superb example of its class can now be seen, liveried in blue, hauling special steam excursions on the mainline. The Hornby model powered by a 5 pole motor depicts 'Canadian Pacific' in its modern-day livery and can quite legitimately appear on a modern image railway layout.
