This is the 24th year for the CP Holiday Train but it will be the first in-person shows in two years following virtual concerts due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In the coming weeks, the two trains will make stops in communities on CP's rail network in eight U.S. states and six Canadian provinces. 

Since its inception in 1999, the CP Holiday Train has raised more than $21 million and collected five-million pounds of food for community food banks along CP's network.
