CP's old steam engine 2816 is seen crossing the Parry Sound trestle on its' way back to the North and west after a tour of Southern Ontario much to the delight of the fans. One can see the railfans' "photo-line" to the right of the white van.  It is understood that the 2816 may never run again on CP, and is up for sale.

  1. It used to be at Parry CP station (now a Gallery). But directional running killed that off, so I mostly wander somewhere down along the docks. James Bay Jct Rd N, about 4 KM south of town is another great location. In town I like Isabella St, just N of the CN station for southbounds. Cascade St, over by the dam, is nice as well. I haven’t done much in Parry the past few years, so I would image the foliage has taken over some of the spots I used to enjoy. Hope this helps.

  2. Can you tell me your best place for trains photos in Parry Sound?

  3. Thanks, guys, for the comments. I liked my images of the 2816 travelling Southbound so much that I made another trip up to the Sound to catch it going back North. As far as this engine being for sale, Troy, it is what I understand, not what I know for sure. Somewhere I heard it had developed mechanical problems and CP decided against the expense of making it operable again and were looking at ‘unloading’ it. Sell, trade, who knows? But with the new CEO and the Boy Toy at his side, I cannot imagine this old classic roaming the rails of CP again.

  4. fantastic photograph!

    I must ask though, how did you find out about the sale of 2816? I’ve been searching the CPR website and other train forums and even news articles related to CP, and i haven’t found anything.

  5. Great shot!
