Note:
From: "Kyle Wyatt" kylekwyatt@gmail.com
CP 4-4-0 #173 is listed as built by Norris in 1864. CP #173 was wrecked at Alameda Jct. in November 1869, and was so extensively rebuilt in 1872 that the CP records listed it as built by CPRR ever after. The photo is of #173 as it appeared in 1883 (apparently taken on the same day and in the same spot as newly rebuilt CP #48). By this time #173 was already modified with air brakes and an 1880s style paint scheme. Also the original CP #173 was built by Norris-Lancaster – not to be confused by the Norris Loco Works in Philadelphia. The Lancaster shop was operated by Norris brothers of the Norrises of Philadelphia.
