Alberni Pacific's CPR RS-3 8427

This unit is the last surviving CP RS-3 and was purchased from CP by Crown Forest Ltd in 1979 for use on their logging railroad near Ladysmith B.C. Canada. However in 1984 the line was closed forever when one of it's main trestles was burned out.

The unit then sat in Ladysmith for some ten years until it was donated to the Alberni Pacific Tourist railway in Port Alberni B.C. The vintage loco is now used on summertime tourist trains along the city's waterfront with hopes of one day restoring the unit to it's former CP tuscan and grey livery.
