CP Stevens stacks


I've recently seen two photographs of engines ordered during the construction era in what is clearly the original builder's paint but with the Stevens large diamond stack. When did the large diamond replace the CP designed (and other) balloon stacks? Was in 1870-71, 72?

I'm trying to figure out a series of dates for various stacks used on the CP/SP to date photographs – and paint jobs – by.
