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.
