All Aboard!

Choo-choo…chugga-chugga-chugga…choo-choo!

What’s that you ask? Well that is the sound of the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train and it’s coming to London!

The Holiday Train will be making its London stop at the Richmond St. railway crossing between Oxford St. and Central Ave at 8:30 p.m. tonight – December 1st.

This is the 12th year that the Holiday Train will be making its trek across Canada and the United States, all in the name of fighting hunger.

Since 1999, the train has traveled 85,764 miles, has raised 4.8 million dollars and generated almost 2.3 million pounds of food donations for local food shelves. If you do attend, be sure to bring along some non-perishable food items and/or a cash donation to contribute to this worthy cause . Every dollar donated gives Food Banks 4 dollars in purchasing power.

Look for this year’s train to arrive with 14 decorated rail cars and a modified box car that has been turned into a traveling stage for performers like Juno-award winner Melanie Doane.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to get into the holiday spirit and to contribute to a good cause. And if you’re not from London be sure to check out the Holiday Train schedule to find out if it will be making a stop in your city!

Happy Holidays! 🙂
