CP Holiday Train derailed due to COVID-19

A Christmas tradition across  Canada won’t be happening this year.

CP Rail is announcing its popular “Holiday Train” won’t be running due to COVID-19.  While the train won’t be stopping in many communities, it doesn’t mean the initiative will stop as food banks will still be a beneficiary with CP making donations to food banks across the railway network this year while hosting virtual concerts in lieu of the annual event.  Details on those concerts will be released at a later date.

Over its 21 years of operation, the holiday train has raised $17.8 million while collecting 4.8 million pounds of food for local food banks.
