  1. While you may be right – the best way to go about this is to write a polite letter to CPR PR and talk about 2816′s ambassadorship of history and how it touched the public in it’s prior visits, and how it benefits the CPR

    Convince them to give it another tour of duty.

    That’s how I’d go about it.

  2. Like CPR is strapped for cash? Yeah, I don’t think so; eh?

  3. Do you want to pay for it PRR? :)

    It costs $$ buddy.

  4. CPR, bring her back into regular service – NOW! Are you listening? Hello?
