Canadian National 4-8-2 No. 6055 rests in the engine terminal at Winnipeg in this August 24, 1956 view attributed to Alan Bardal of Vancouver, British Columbia. Until the 1944 delivery of the "bullet-nose" class U-1-f Mountains, the U-1-e group from Montreal Locomotive Works in 1930 represented the high point of 4-8-2 development on the CNR. Although they shared many specifications with earlier U-1 classes, they had 24x30-inch cylinders and 260 p.s.i. of boiler pressure, resulting in a tractive effort of 52,315 pounds. They weighed 352,720 pounds, and had 3900 square feet of evaporative heating surface and 1040 square feet of superheater surface. Additionally, alone among CNR 4-8-2s these Montreal products of class U-1-e had the Baker valve gear, in the standard (not "reversed") configuration. They also had a multiple-bearing crosshead similar to that employed on the 1944 U-1-f class. Sources indicate that some of these engines of class U-1-e were oil-fired and most had smoke deflectors, but as this image (acquired via eBay) reveals No. 6055 was a coal-burner and lacked the deflectors when photographed. No members of this subclass survive.
