CALGARY, Alberta — Canadian Pacific 4-6-4 No. 2816 is making a one-time-only return to steam to pull a “virtual” edition of Canadian Pacific’s Holiday Train, returning to operation after nearly a decade of dormancy. The locomotive will pull the train later this month in the yard at Calgary and will not operate on the main line. The locomotive was steamed up and moved around the yard in Calgary Nov. 13.
Trains magazine offers railroad news, railroad industry insight, commentary on today's freight railroads, passenger service (Amtrak), locomotive technology, railroad preservation and history, railfan opportunities (tourist railroads, fan trips), and great railroad photography.
