Blogger in draft…

While reading through my Google Reader this morning, I spotted this item on Google Operating System, about the “new new Blogger”, called Blogger in draft. The first new feature is video uploading. So, here goes, with a clip of the CP2816, a steam engine, recorded two years ago from a public location.

Enjoy 🙂

In case the video doesn’t work, here’s a picture of the engine –

And now the video –

  1. Pretty cool – both the video embedding and its content. And that’s not an ordinary, garden-variety locomotive, is it? Looks like a retro/restored engine.

    In this part of Florida we see pretty much just Amtrak trains, always gray/silver, seldom dressed up.

    Have you taken many train rides over the years?

  2. From the Canadian Pacific website –

    “The resurrected CPR Empress locomotive 2816 re-entered active service in 2001 as a roving ambassador for Canadian Pacific Railway. The CPR Empress is now a significant component of the company’s program. CPR’s 2816 is a class H1b Hudson-type locomotive built by Montreal Locomotive Works in December 1930. CPR Empress is now the only surviving H1b Hudson and is one of only a handful of preserved and operating CPR steam locomotives in North America.”

    As far as train rides, I’ve done a few, all on good ol’ Amtrak, except for the two trips I’ve taken on the Washington Metro. This’ll make for a good blog post one time there 🙂
