The Canadian Pacific Railway’s Royal Hudson has been rightly described as one of the most successful locomotive designs of all time. These sleek machines were perhaps Canadian Pacific’s most well know and visually impressive steam locomotives and this, together with their dependable performance over extraordinary distances, has ensured a lasting regard for these locomotives. Thanks to their smooth operating characteristics, engine crews considered these engines the most popular steam power the CPR ever had. To many railfans, the Royal Hudsons (along with the Selkirks) were a fitting closure to CP’s long and glorious steam era.
