For the first time in seven years, 2816's firebox has a flame in it, and hot water in the boiler.  In an unexpected twist to the end of 2020, the locomotive made a surprise return to steam as part of CP's "Holiday Train at Home" virtual concert.

  1. Awesome shot!
    When you say unexpected was it sort of last minute to put it on the holiday train?

  2. I don’t think anyone foresaw a pandemic causing the Holiday Train to not be able to run across North America this year. Which is how 2816 came to be. Hence the unexpected comment.

  3. This image warms me up immensely on this very cold day. Nice composition too.

  4. This is what the system needed to heal in 2020. Many thanks, CPR. Let’s stretch her legs in 2021!
