2010 $20 Great Canadian Locomotives - The Selkirk Fine Silver (No Tax)

In 1929, the Montreal Locomotive Works built a new series of large 2-10-4 engines for Canadian Pacific Railway to handle the heavy grades between Calgary (Alberta) and Revelstoke (British Columbia). Named for the Selkirk Mountains that they crossed, these non-articulated locomotives tackled the Spiral Tunnels, the Field Hill and the Connaught Tunnel; marvels of railway engineering that continue to astound to this day.

The Selkirks carried freight and passengers. They burned oil rather than coal to reduce their weight and to eliminate the sparks from coal-burning engines that could potentially ignite the heavily forested route.

To learn more about this great locomotive, purchase yours today and get aboard the Selkirk's memory!
