CP Holiday Train standard imageThis year the CP Holiday Train arrives in Port Moody on Tuesday, December 18th and the festivities kick off at 8pm at its NEW LOCATION, on the tracks behind the Port Moody Recreation Complex, 300 Ioco Road.

Canadian Pacific is proud to announce that the 2012 Holiday Train program will be riding the rails to raise money and awareness about hunger issues in Canada and the US, one stop at a time. Again this year, the two trains will visit over 150 communities - beginning their journeys in Beaconsfield, QC, and Scranton, PA. The 2012 Holiday Train schedule is now available online and Facebook.

Since 1999, the Holiday Train program has raised close to C$6.4 million and about 2.6 million pounds of food for North American food banks. With families continuing to turn to food banks, the need is always present. Items such as infant formula, canned meats, and spaghetti sauce are in popular demand. Bring a non-perishable food item or money to your local event to support your local food bank.

Each Holiday Train has 14 brightly decorated rail cars, including a modified box car that has been turned into a traveling stage for performers. They are each decorated with hundreds of thousands of technology-leading LED Christmas lights.
