D-Day 80th Anniversary, June 6th, 2024. Where is CPKC 6644?
Author: cpr4744

Thursday is the 80th Anniversary of D-Day. On June 6th 1944, 150,000 Allied forces landed in Normandy, France. Amongst them were more than 14,000 Canadians who landed at Juno Beach.
Given the significance of the day, where is CPKC 6644, the military heritage unit commemorating D-Day?
The Western Railroad Discussion Group indicated the unit was in Corpus Christ, TX on May 29th. 
Where's the unit now? Has it made it back to Canada? Has it been cleaned up?
CPKC has done a remarkable job with their current 2816/Empress 3 country tour. It would be nice if they would recognize this significant historical event as well.
Thoughts?
Thanks
Stephen
