The Canadian Pacific Railroad has been running these trains since 1999 and generated $5.6 million and 2.5 million pounds of food for community food shelves. They have two trains-one in the U.S. that will rumble through 8 states and the other through six Canadian provinces. Our little town is home to a Canadian Pacific depot and maintenance center.
Here is the train coming into town. See the US and Canadian flags.
It was cold and windy and I had to walk a long way down the track to get these pictures. Most of the time the sun was shining right in my eyes.
The train has14 cars decorated with the lights. A modified boxcar opens into a stage for entertainers. I had to get right up close to the cars in order to see the lights.
A look at a passenger car and the modified box car.
Once they opened the door I couldn't get very close as all the little kids were standing right up front.
It was too cold to stand there any longer. I hope you enjoyed seeing the Holiday Train.
