The CPR Holiday Train Visits Southern Ontario Once Again!

Click on each picture for a closer look!.
Continuing their tradition of operating Holiday Trains which visit communities throughout the CP railway system, the CP announces the following at their webiste:
"The Canadian Pacific Holiday Train hits the rails again this November, visiting over 130 communities in eight states and six provinces. In the last decade, the Holiday Train has helped raise $4 million and 2 million pounds of food for local food banks.
In these tough economic times, 20% more Canadians are turning to food banks for support this year and 30% m
ore Americans are at risk of hunger. Hunger continues to be a problem and food banks need our help now more than ever. Bring a cash or food donation to the Holiday Train event in your community and help feed the need. Click here to donate online to the CP Holiday Train through Food Banks Canada."
