One of the most popular wheel arrangements was the 4-6-0 Ten Wheeler of which hundreds were built for many railways. The CPR had hundreds of D6, D9 and D10 class built by many builders including CLC, MLW, and their own Angus shops in Canada along with Schenectady Locomotive Works, Richmond Locomotive & Machine Works in the United States but, not the famous Baldwin Locomotive Works, although CPR did have other classes built by them. North British Locomotive Company in Glasgow, Scotland and Saxon Locomotive Building Company in Chemnity, Germany also built engines at a time when North American builders were busy. Specifications were very similar for all of them including 63" drivers that were capable of 60 miles per hour or higher and a good 33,300 pounds of tractive effort and a total weight in working order of 155 tons. D9's were used on passenger trains in the early part of the 20th. Century while large numbers of D-10's worked branchline way freights and yard switching late in the steam era.

These engines and many other CNR ones retained their Stephenson valve gear to the end, unlike CPR which standardized on Walschaerts.
One of 25 Mogul type 2-6-0's delivered in 1910, nineteen of which were
later modernized with superheating and eventually other features that
drastically altered their appearance. They were equipped with a Casey-Cavin
power reverser. Very capable little engines some of these survived into
the last years of steam and became familiar sights on Ontario branchlines,
many being saved from scrap to be displayed
and some (89, 91, and 92) even being restored to
operation on tourist railways in the United
