This left-side view of Canadian Pacific class H1a Hudson 2808 shows the partial concealment of the air pumps under the enlarged number display in the running board skirting, a nice touch adding to the elegant appearance of this class. The steaming capacity of these fine 4-6-4s stemmed from an 81-square-foot grate area, together with an evaporative heating surface of 3791 square feet augmented with 1542 square feet of superheater surface. This image, photographer and date unspecified, comes to us from the collection of Tom Rock of Rock on Trains, Cleveland, Tennessee. Information from Ray Verdone's CPR Steam Locomotives Database indicates that No. 2808 was retired in May 1957 after little more that a quarter-century of service.
