    Just wondering if anyone knows if CNR ever had small 0-4-0 switchers?

    I've done a little research on this and, so far, I haven't found any 0-4-0 examples.

    Thanks,
    Rob

    Thanks, Andrew! I'm interested in the tender version -- it appears that it was removed in 1924?

    If you haven't already guessed why I'm asking this question, it's this: I have an old AHM 0-4-0 Santa Fe switcher that I'm thinking of converting to CN! :eek:

    Canadian National Steam Power, by Clegg and Corley, shows a total of eight 0-4-0s, with number 2 being the only tender-type of the lot. Built in 1896 at Altoona, by the Pennsylvania RR, it was also the first of the eight to be scrapped, in July of 1922.
