Winnipeg, Manitoba July 1, 2003

Only fitting, with Canada's history related to the railway, that on Canada Day that Canadian Pacific Railway steam locomotive #2816, The Empress travelled from Kenora, Ontario to Winnipeg and Portage La Prairie, Manitoba on its return to Calgary, Alberta. Tickets were sold on an excursion from Winnipeg to Portage La Prairie by the committee to preserve the CPR Station in Portage and by all reports the event was a huge success.
