Online Auction Description
Canada 1985 issue, Scott's Cat. # 1072. This is a great stamp for topical collectors, who are interested in trains, steam engines, locomotives, or the history of the Canadian rail system. Even more importantly, for those specialist collectors who love small town cancels.
On this stamp: Series of CP Mikes that were enlargements of the P1a/b engines. They had larger-diameter cylinders, bigger grates, and higher boiler pressure. As usual, weight grew as the locomotives were re-boilered. In the 1947 book, the P2 appeared in two forms; this version had less superheat surface and thus more evaporative surface.
If you are a collector who specializes in town cancellations this is a good example of a local small town. Espanola (population 5,314) is a small town in Northern Ontario, Canada. It is situated on the Spanish River, and is the seat of Sudbury District, approximately 70 kilometers west of downtown Sudbury, and just south of the junction of Highway 6 and Highway 17. Altho the Canadian Pacific Railway, provided passenger service to this area, it is not known if this locomotive was ever used on that line.
