An 1886 product of the Canadian Pacific's shops in Montréal, 4-4-0 No. 144 was originally numbered 351, then 230, then assumed her final number in 1914. Engines of the A2 class had 63-inch drivers, 17x24-inch cylinders and 160 p.s.i. of boiler pressure; they weighed 104,000 pounds and delivered about 15,000 pounds of tractive effort. Not originally superheated, they were rebuilt early in the twentieth century with piston valves and carried 951 square feet of evaporative heating surface and 215 square feet of superheating surface. Noel Giffin supplied this CPR publicity photo of No. 144 from the collection of his father Kenneth Levi Giffin. For an later view of No. 144 in excursion service, click here.
