Canadian Pacific Railway '8000' - This multipressure locomotive was designed in Montreal at Montreal Locomotive works in 1928. These locomotives were assigned road numbers 5900 through 5919. These were part of the Selkirks, a name chosen for then range of Rockies they travelled and crossed. Exhaust steam was mixed with 250 psi pressure steam from the main boiler to feed two outside cylinders. High maintenance costs offset benefits and was scrapped in late 1930's.

The 1930s was a decade known for "streamlining," or what we now refer to as #aerodynamics. Until then, steam engines were purely functional in design, with little or no attention paid to the effects of aerodynamic drag. Eventually #locomotive builders began enveloping their giant machines in bodywork that not only smoothed the flow of air but resulted in handsome #designs that could be used in advertising to attract passengers.
