2816 Shakedown Ride

Unfortunately, it appears that I will not be chasing 2816 on her shakedown run to Carseland and back to Calgary. I will however be going along for the ride! A friend of mine asked if I wanted to join him as he is allowed to bring along a guest...

...I did not refuse.

In the words of Balki Bartokomous:
"Now we are so happy, we do the Dance of Joy! HEY! Dia, dia, dia, dia, da-dia, da-da-da-dia! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!"

2816 Shakedown Run

Two little birdies told me that CPR's 2816 steam train will be coming out for a shakedown run on May the 14th. She will leave the CPR Pavilion in downtown Calgary at about 11:00 and will most likely make her way to Carseland and back to Calgary after turning around on the wye. I'm not 100% on the trip destination but it is the most logical.

That is the word so far!
