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 even being restored to operation
on tourist railways in the United States.

Note: For legal reasons lines and equipment in the United States could not be owned by Canadian National Railways which was a Canadian government entity. Therefore, the name Grand Trunk continued in use there. Grand Trunk Western Railroad for lines in Michigan etc.and simply Grand Trunk (unofficially Grand Trunk Eastern) for lines in New England and New York. Central Vermont and Duluth, Winnipeg & Pacific were two additional U.S. subsidiaries.
