CP Holiday Train visits southern Ontario again this year!

Continuing their tradition of operating Holiday Trains which visit communities throughout the CP railway system, the CP speaks to the Holiday Train at their website as follows:

Making a difference, one stop at a time

The Canadian Pacific Holiday Train hits the rails again in November, visiting over 140 communities across our network.

Since the program's inception back in 1999, more than $5.6 million and over 2.45 million pounds of food has been collected in Canada and the United States.

The goal of the Holiday Train is to collect food and money for local food banks and to raise awareness in the fight against hunger. At each event, the Holiday Train provides a box car stage, a line up of great musical talents and a corporate contribution to the local food bank. The community, in turn, is encouraged to donate food and funds, all of which stays in the community.
