Question: Canadian Pacific Locomotive #4744 [also SP corporate organization, taxes, credit mobilier, robber barons, Ames tools, panic of 1873]

From: "Clifford Harwood"

I have a question about the final disposition of Central Pacific [sic] #4744, a Montreal Locomotive Works, M640, diesel locomotive, built in February of 1971.

Rated at 4000 HP, I believe this was a Canadian version of an ALCo. My list does not distinguish between Central Pacific and Canadian Pacific.

If it was, in fact, Canadian Pacific, then my hunt will go on.

If I am barking up the wrong tree, let me know. ...
