Fulfilling the needs of a growing population and ever-increasing trade, the Canadian Pacific D10 Locomotive (No. 926) is typical of the extremely versatile and highly successful "Ten Wheeler" locomotives used by Canadian Pacific from 1905 through World War II.
The Toronto was the first steam locomotive built in Canada, and probably the first anywhere in the British Empire outside of Great Britain. For almost sixty years, freight service across Canada relied heavily on Canadian Pacific's powerful D-10 4-6-0 locomotive. 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.
