Word comes from Calgary that Canadian Pacific Railroad has ended its steam locomotive program.  The recent trip to Vancouver and return turns out to have the locomotive’s last trip. After being winterized, the steam crew was notified that their jobs were being eliminated.

Other changes in CPR’s specialty programs, such as the Royal Canadian Pacific excursions and the Holiday Trains, appear to be in the offing as well.
