Crown Metal Products Locomotive Roster

The creation of this roster (and indeed the entire site) would not have been possible without Dennis Larrick's excellent article, A Short History of the 36" Gauge Crown Metal Products Locomotives. If you know of an engine that is not listed, especially in the smaller gauges, please send an e-mail to share your information. If you have more info about any of the existing entries, please send that as well.

The roster is devided into two parts:

Engine # CN # Date Built Built for Coaches Current location Notes
1 ? ~1980 Canada's Wonderland
Toronto, Ontario
8 thirty passenger coaches Dorney Park
Allentown, PA
#593 on cab
? ? ~1980 Canada's Wonderland
Toronto, Ontario
8 thirty passenger coaches Valleyfair
Shakopee, MN
Possibly 2 different engines, Extra coaches sold to Omaha Zoo
Canada's Wonderland originally ordered two trains with eight cars a piece. The railroad was never installed and at some point the trains were sold to Valleyfair. Since both Valleyfair and Dorney Park are owned by the Cederfair Corporation, it would be logical to assume that the Dorney engine is one of these two and that Valleyfair has the other. Supposedly, six of the coaches are now owned by the Omaha Zoo, so the Valleyfair and Dorney trains most likely have five cars each. Another possibility is that there are two trains at Valleyfair and the Dorney train was built new around 1990.
