Over the railway's life the rolling stock consisted of three locomotives and a few cars. The first locomotive, named Ottawa, was constructed by Kinmond Brother of Montreal and was bought new.Other locomotive (old and used) were acquired over the years. It must have been hard to find broad gauge euipment! In 1895 locomotive number 1, Ottawa, was destroyed in an engine shed fire. Locomotive number 3 was renamed Ottawa at this time. I'm not sure which one this is.
The line had no turn-around facilities and the locomotive always pointed uphill- toward Ottawa.
