 Canadian Car & Foundry C-36 (HSR #90:2, 181-210:2)

Canadian Car & Foundry C-36 (HSR #90:2, 181-210:2)

The HSR’s CC&F C-36s were built in two batches. #90:2 and #181-200 were built in 1946 for the HSR. #201:2- 210:2 were built in 1946 for the Canada Coach Lines (CCL) as #1151-1169 (odd numbers), and were sold to the HSR in 1951. Several of the HSR's C-36s were in turn sold to the CCL sometime after 1960, and all remaining C-36s were retired or sold before 1972.
