It isn't Christmas until the train comes to town!

Greeting the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train ( has become one of our families' Christmas Traditions.

The CP Holiday Train travels across Canada stopping at many communities along the way to share a short Christmas program and to collect money and non perishable food items for local food banks.

This year the weather cooperated--it was a night without wind, rain, and snow.

These are some of the pictures I took of the decorated rail cars.

One of the boxcars holds the entertainers. This year's entertainment was provided by, The Odds.

Even the jolly red guy made an appearance!

How did I miss this post? I love the pictures of the lights! How interesting to display them on the passing train. No wonder you were in a hurry to get out to see it.
