The chase is on! Canadian Pacific 4-6-4 No. 2816 is on an epic journey from Canada to the U.S. to Mexico – all to celebrate the one-year anniversary of the CPKC railroad! After the vintage locomotive steamed crossed the U.S. border, Trains.com staff members (Lucas Iverson, Bryson Sleppy, Sean Kirby, and others) were there to capture the action at various locations in North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Illinois. Enjoy this quick compilation from the Upper Midwest segment of the CPKC Final Spike Steam Tour!
