2011 $20 Silver Coin - Great Canadian Locomotive - D10 (#4 in Series) (TAX Exempt)

Workhorse of Canada's freight service

For almost sixty years, freight service across Canada relied heavily on Canadian Pacific's powerful D-10 4-6-0* locomotive. A total 502 of these steam-powered workhorses were built between 1905 and 1913 to become the cornerstones of every freight terminal from Nova Scotia to British Columbia. For three decades, more than one in seven locomotives was a D-10 until they were gradually retired from revenue service between 1938 and 1960.

The D-10's success can be credited to its uncomplicated and reliable design. It embodied the evolution of locomotive engineering, featuring typical features of nineteenth-century engines while incorporating the latest innovations such as piston valves and simplified valve gear.

*These numbers designate the wheel configuration; in this case four leading wheels, six driving wheels and zero trailing wheels.
