    Unfortunatly whilst travelling through a crowd in Mexico yesterday 2816 hit and killed a woman who got too close whilst trying to take a selfy. There are videos and links if you care to look. Official statement from CPKC awaited as to what next. Thoughts and prayers are with the crew and womans family

    Having seen some of the photos and videos of its passage through Mexico, I'm not surprised. Thousands of people everywhere, standing on the opposite line as the train passes, climbing on the front of the loco when it stops.

    So 2816 is now back in Canada - thus ends an epic journey by steam in 2024. Picture by Byron Fichter in Estevan Saskatchewan.....
