CP Empress #2816



The Canadian Pacific #2816 "Empress" was refitted a number of years a go as a heritage project. The steamer is still in service to some degree for private charters and the odd road trip open to the public.


The "Empress" chugged past my back yard on it's way to the Crowsnest Pass of The Rocky Mountains, crossing the continental divide into Alberta. Although the "Empress" was in the lead of the consist, additional power was provided by an F7a unit to assist with the long climb ahead.
