Canadian Pacific Kansas announced the 2816 Empress steam locomotive will travel from Canada, through the U.S. and into Mexico departing Calgary, Alta. on April 14, 2024, the one-year anniversary of CPKC’s creation.

“Our unique, unrivaled railway network connects a continent and links Canada, the U.S. and Mexico,” said Keith Creel, CPKC President and Chief Executive Officer. “On April 14, 2023, we drove a ceremonial Final Spike completing that continental connection. We look forward to proudly celebrating that historic railway moment with a special tour starring the 2816, honoring our history and looking forward to an exciting future filled with opportunities for our railroaders, customers and communities.”

Following a special anniversary event in Calgary on April 13, 2024, the 2816 will depart Calgary on April 14, 2024, traveling to stops in the following cities:
Moose Jaw, Sask., Minot, N.D., St. Paul, Minn., Bensenville, Ill., Davenport, Iowa , Kansas City, Mo. , Shreveport, La. , Laredo, Texas, and Mexico City, Mexico.

The 2816 Steam Locomotive will be in Minot, ND on Tuesday, April 30th from 4-7pm. The train will stop at the north end of Main Street in Downtown Minot.

The 2816, a 4-6-4 Hudson-type steam locomotive, was built in 1930 by Montreal Locomotive Works. It served as a roving steam-powered ambassador for Canadian Pacific throughout Canada and the U.S. before being placed in storage in 2012. Now, after a decade of slumber, the engine has been carefully prepared to once again travel the rails.
