The GWR 2800 Class is a class of steam locomotives first built in 1903. The oldest one that survives was built in October 1905 and can be found on the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Steam Railway.

[Actually I made the post for 2800, but it may have been mistaken for the post for 2799, so I've deleted it to remove confusion and keep the sequence going.]

[Could you include the number 2803 in the post please? Thanks.]

Here's a 2010 thread from the chess.com site, in which a poster wants to identify a game, but the only information available is the FIDE rankings of the players, which are 2666 and 2804. Amazingly, someone manages to identify it as this game between Francisco Vallejo Pons vs Veselin Topalov from 2006. Impressive, eh?

As referred to in xcooler123's post for 2800, GWR No.2807 is the oldest survivor of the Great Western Railway's 2800 Class of 2-8-0 steam locomotives. In 1981 it was saved and moved to Toddington railway station on the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway. It was restored to steam in 2010.

The 2810 is an exclusive private resort five minutes away from the Las Vegas Strip. Facilities include 10 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms, custom heated swimming pools, jacuzzis, maid service (on request), a putting green, ice machine, a separate game house with bar and pool table, and "over 300 exotic palm trees ensuring maximum privacy". The one detail I can't find on the website is how much it costs to hire.

The Cisco 2811 is an integrated services router, useful for small and medium businesses. Not that you can still easily get a new one; apparently it's discontinued.

In December 2014, the sitting Nigerian president Goodluck Jonathan received all 2812 votes at his party's convention to become candidate for the 2015 presidential election. However he lost the subsequent election to his rival Muhammadu Buhari. Perhaps he should have been renamed Badluck Jonathan :)
