Canada's magical Christmas train confirms it will return to Calgary this year

Oct 20 2017, 2:08 pm

The 19th edition of the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train will travel across Canada this holiday season and will be making a stop in Calgary on Saturday, December 9.

Two trains will be travelling through the US and Canada to bring holiday cheer to 182 communities and collect donations for food banks.

“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 CEO, in a release. “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.”

The 2017 edition of the Holiday Train also concludes CP’s Canada 150 celebrations and the Canadian train will feature the Spirit of Tomorrow car, which was part of the Canada 150 Train this past summer.

Come down and kick off the holidays with the coolest locomotive in the country and be sure to bring donations for the local food bank to help those in need.
