Remarks & Notes 
CP 1098 at Port Clinton. CP 1098, a Canadian Pacific 10-wheeler, now sits in the RBMN Yard at Port Clinton, PA. Built by the Canadian Locomotive Company in 1913 for the Canadian Pacific Railway, this engine weighs roughly 100 tons and has about 33,000 lbs of tractive effort. She served her owner for decades before coming into the "Steamtown" collection of F. Nelson Blount when Canadian steam operations ended. She later became part of the Steamtown Foundation Collection when Steamtown moved from Bellows Falls, Vt. to Scranton, PA. In 1987, she was purchased by Railtours operator George Hart, who ran her in excursion service for about 10 years. Last steamed in the late 1990s, she is now in the custody of the Reading & Northern. She is seen here just outside the engine house at Port Clinton. This engine has a reputation for being an excursion workhorse, and is currently stored awaiting her turn as a possible restoration candidate.
