About the Holiday Train:

The Holiday Train is a freight train covered in hundreds of thousands of bright lights.  At 140 stops across Canada and United States, Canadian Pacific provides a box car stage, a line up of great musical talent and a corporate contribution to the local food bank.  Food banks provide collection bins for non-perishable food.  Communities, in turn, donate food and funds, all of which stays in the community.  The Holiday Train has raised over $5.6 million and 2.5 million pounds of food.
