Lord Strathcona’s Horse (Royal Canadians)
On behalf of all Strathconas it gives us great pleasure to announce that Canadian Pacific Railways has dedicated one of their locomotives to Lord Strathcona’s Horse (Royal Canadians).
We thank CP for their support to our Regiment throughout the years, most particularly for their support during Remembrance Day and their Spin for a Veteran initiatives. Our shared history defines us, and nothing says that better than Locomotive 7030:  “Strathcona’s"

History of a Regiment
Scottish-born Canadian businessman Donald Smith, 1st Baron Strathcona and Mount Royal, was co-founder of the Canadian Pacific Railway and the man who drove CP's last spike. A man of many interests and talents, in 1900 at his own expense he raised and equipped "Strathcona's Horse" for service in the South African War. CP has a continuing connection with the regiment.
