into North Vancouver, BC to begin one of the most
extensive steam locomotive restorations ever accomplished.
five day inaugural run across the
American Rockies to Calgary was
both spectacular and flawless. From
the classic 8 car consist, a diesel
loco in CPR heritage paint to great
weather and the beauty of CP’s
route across the mountains, it all
added up to one incredible journey.
As Official Videographer of the
CPR 2816 project, RI was able to
capture it all. Trackside, aboard
the locomotive, in the air and with
the people. It’s a trip you
will never forget..
