Between 1972 and 1981, CP’s Angus Shops in Montreal built over 300 modern, wide-vision “vans”. Hence the “Angus Van” name that stuck with them throughout their careers. (For all you non-hose heads, that’s Canadian for “Caboose”.) They proved popular with crews and many are still on the road today, as shoving platforms or rider cars in MOW service. One of the more unique uses for a van was CP 422999, which was converted into a calibration car. The Angus Van is similar to the wide-vision caboose that is commonly seen throughout North America.
