CPR Holiday Train seen from Mackle Road

It’s the best shot I could get from Mackle Road near Melling Avenue in Cote Saint-Luc, this evening.  The Canadian Pacific Railway Holiday Train is getting set to depart from its home base in the Saint-Luc Sortin Yards for a cross Canada tour.

The Canadian Pacific Holiday Train will be visiting over 150 communities across Canada. Each event features a boxcar stage, a lineup of great musical talent and a contribution to the local food bank. Everyone who attends is encouraged to donate food and money which stays in their community.

Since it’s inception in 1999, CP raised more than $6.4 million and over 2.6 million pounds of food in the U.S. and Canada.

The Canadian Holiday Train will embark on its three-week journey on November 28 from Beaconsfield, finishing up in Port Moody, BC, on December 18.
