Friday Foto Friends & Skywatch ~ CP Holiday Train 2018

The CP Holiday Train program launched in 1999 and has since raised more than $14.5 million and gathered 4.3 million pounds of food for communities along CP’s network in Canada and the U.S. "The Holiday Train program is all about local food banks and food shelves and the critical role they play in our communities," said Keith Creel, CP's President and Chief Executive Officer. "People come for the beautifully-lit train and stay for the incredible show – all in the name of community. The holiday season is the best time of the year, and we look forward to bringing together thousands of Canadians and Americans this season for this incredibly important cause and a great time." ~ Here are two CP trains and a great video with the train rolling through both countries. If I'm not mistaken they also have holiday trains rolling out overseas.

  7. Love these pictures. Trains always fascinate me, I think it's because one of my grandfathers was an engineer and the other was a mechanic on these huge beauties!
