The units numbered in the CP 10 and 20 series were Canadian Locomotive Company built 44-ton D-T-C (Diesel Torque Converter) 44H44A1 type switchers, or commonly named DT-2. They were built between 1957 and 1960, and were powered by 2 250 Hp. Caterpillar D-337 engines. They were all retired or sold between 1968 and 1979.

CP #10 and #11 were originally constructed by CLC under serial numbers #2956 and #2957. CP rejected these units because of overweight. New units were constructed to become CP #10 and #11. Parts of the original #10 and #11 were used to construct DT-2's #17 and #18.
