There was an article in Model Railroader in the December 1995 issue.

I wish "train19572003" were correct, but the prototype drawing in that issue was a PRR caboose. I can't find any record of our publishing a drawing of a CP D-10 4-6-0.

Sorry,

Andy

Depending on how critical it is for you, you might consider this:

It is up for auction by Lark Spur Line, a local (for me) train shop in Merrickville, Ontario. Jeff has an excellent store, and is very professional and polite to deal with.

Contact the Canadian Museum of Science and Technology. They have the most complete collection of CPR drawings avalible (though a great number were accidentaly destroyed). I'm not sure if they have any D10 drawings but a quick email will provide the answer. They are used to having people like us contacting them for drawing information.

Hope this helps.

In HO , Pacific Fast Mail (Van's Hobbies) made brass models of D-10's . I have modeled CPR and DAR for over 50 years and can not remember a set of plans for a D-10, ever being published. Also, the D-10's, run quite a range of sub-classifications. The D-10 h seems to have been the most commom. The PFM model is quite accurate and they do show up on the market from time to time. Someplace I have a book of CPR loco drawings and if there is anything usable on D-10's in it I'll come back on this forum in a day or so and let you know.

Sorry for the wrong info. What I gave was in my database. CP Sig's magazine CP Tracks has 2 articles on D10's. The first appeared in issue Vol 6 No. 2 which has some photos and gives the roster of D10 class locomotives for the CPR. The second appeared in Vol 8 No.1 and was entitled "A Photo Study of CPR D-10h 999. Neither article gives measurements.

Canadian Railway Modeller reprinted the O Sho Me D-10 drawings in the Nov/Dec 1995 issue. These are crude drawings but useful nonetheless. The D-10 class had over 500 locos in which were all based on the same boiler and frame. The differences show up in the type of valve motion, running board arrangment, piping and tender style. There have been several runs of brass D-10s over the years, I have seen pictures of an early United model that does not have the cylinders sloping in at the top, later United models are correct and perhaps the best model of the lot, the mid 70s Van Hobbies/ Samhongsa model was one of Sam's first and suffers from poor build also the tender is noticably to wide. Hope this helps.

Omer Lavallee's book "Canadian Pacific Steam Locomotives" has have drawings with dimensions. I borrowed the book from my local library. If you are unable to locate the book, I can try to email you the sheet with drawings.
