0204.0005: CPR Locomotive #1279

Locomotive #1279 - One of the Kettle-Valley Railway locomotives photographed at Lethbridge, AB. Kettle Valley Railway historian Joe Smuin writes: This information is completely incorrect. Neither this locomotive nor any of its type was ever assigned to either the KVR or the subsequent Kettle Valley Division. Locomotives of this specific class did work from Nelson east, but nowhere near KV territory. Please remember that the Kettle Valley Railway ran from Midway, B.C. west to either Spence's Bridge or Odlum, B.C. The KVR was absorbed into the BC District of the CPR in 1931. Except for a few miles at Grand Forks, B.C., no territory east of Midway was ever part of the KVR or subsequent KV Division.
