Manitoulin & North Shore Railway (1888-1911)
Algoma Eastern Railway (1911-1931)
Canadian Pacific Railway (1931-1938)

Background

Although physically separate, the Algoma Central and Algoma Eastern were run by common management until the leasing of the latter for 999 years to the Canadian Pacific in 1931. CP renumbered the equipment during the next several years, with the last AE equipment being retired by early 1938. The AE was dissolved in 1958.

Data has been taken from the following ORERs (MM/YY): 1/1915, 3/1915-5/1915, 8/1915-4/1916, 9/1916, 1/1917, 5/1917-2/1918, 1/1919, 11/1919-12/1919, 4/1920-5/1920, 12/1920-1/1921, 7/1921, 10/1921, 1/1922-5/1922, 8/1922, 11/1922-2/1923, 4/1923-10/1923, 12/1923-8/1928, 10/1928-12/1928, 2/1929-5/1929, 7/1929-7/1933 & 7/1935-4/1938.
