The 5935 is preserved in Delson (Delson, Quebec), Quebec. The 5931 (which was repainted and intentionally renumbered incorrectly as 5934 upon initial public display near downtown Calgary) was eventually repainted and renumbered again, this time with its correct original number; 5931.

Some of the original '''T1a''' class Selkirks also received this paint scheme (but with narrower panels along the sides of the running boards that "widened in the middle" to carry the locomotive's road number). All of the 36 Selkirk locomotives (5900 through 5935) were initially assigned to handle both freight as well as passenger trains between the major division points of Calgary and Revelstoke (Revelstoke, British Columbia) a distance of commons:Calgary
