 It's Steamy Sunday here on the Blog! today's image is of the beautiful CPKC locomotive 2816 also known as the Empress.  It is on it's Final Spike railway tour that is taking it from Canada to Mexico.  It stopped in Kansas City for an event at Union Station there and many people came out to see the beautifully restored locomotive.  It was really great to be able to see it in person.  I knew of the locomotive due to it starring in the Imax type movie Rocky Mountain Express.


  1. Looks like it was all buffed up for the event
