Canadian Pacific Steam Locomotives - more than a third of a century in the making - is a book that's a "must" for the railway steam locomotive specialist. A factual rather than a nostalgic treatment, it pursues its goal with a no-nonsense approach, primarily as a genealogical record of every steam locomotive used by the CPR from its inception in 1881 until the demise of this form of motive power in 1960. While works on this scale dealing with North American steam motive power devote scant -if any - attention to the individuals who initiated and carried out locomotive policy, Omer Lavanadopts the European approach by identifying and discussing the individual mechanical department officers under whose direction these programs were carried out, and to whose innovative skill the management of this appealing, high-profile branch of railway technology must be attributed.
Almost half of the book's 464 pages are occupied by a fully-illustrated narrative text. The remainder of the book is divided into eleven appendices, led off by a 110-page detailed locomotive roster which covers every configuration of each of more than 3,250 units in nearly 7,600 separate line entries. Other appendices augment the main data and deal with topics as diversified as detailed mechanical specifications; particulars and dates of rebuildings, conversion and auxiliary equipment; assigned locations of individual locomotives at four different periods; and particulars of graphics and livery. Three summaries of corporate development, interspersed in the text, provide a background against which the CPR's motive power policy can be assessed.
There are more than 400 photographs (more than a dozen in full colour), one hundred locomotive diagrams and many maps and other graphics. Canadian Pacific Steam Locomotives is the largest book ever published by Railfare. Few more detailed and meticulously-compiled accounts of the steam motive power of a major rail carrier have ever been published. This book will turn anyone who possesses a copy into an "instant" CPR steam locomotive specialist.
