Pictures of the CP 2024
by Chris Jacks
The Heritage Park in Calgary is a large collection of restored historic buildings, similar to Greenfield Village in Dearborn, MI. It has a trolley line from the park entrance to the parking lot and has a steam train running on a loop inside the park. The power is CP 2024, which is actually a U.S. Army engine built in 1944. The park also has a 1942-built U.S. Army engine painted up as CP 2023. In the train is an ex-CN open observation car, which is a veteran of many CN steam excursions in the 1960s.
The 2024 rounds a curve on the steam train loop.
