    With discussion of the exReading 2100 strutting her stuff in the states, lets not forget about Canadian steam.
    ExCN 6060 (4-8-2) was out doing what she was meant to do in pulling heavy-weight varnish in the black, yellow and green classic colours this past weekend in Alberta.
    I see that the schedule is for her to do it again in late August for a few more trips.
    They may not be the 60mph trips she used to pull between Toronto and Niagra Falls in the 70's but she's still looking and sounding great!!! :thumb:

    Wouldn't she make a great trial train for an Edmonton-Calgary passenger run?
    I used to ride those runs to Niagara Falls.
