CALGARY, Alberta – Canadian Pacific has announced the schedule for its 2013 Holiday Train. The full schedule is available on CP’s website at www.cpr.ca.

The 2013 CP Holiday Train program launches on Nov. 25 in Kahnawake, Quebec, formally kicking off the three-week journey of two brightly decorated trains across Canada and the U.S. The first U.S stop is in Scranton, Pa.

The Canadian train will wrap up its journey December 16 in Port Coquitlam, British Columbia, while the U.S. train will journey across the U.S. Northeast and Midwest before its final show Dec. 19 in Weyburn, Saskatchewan.

Since the Holiday Train program first launched in 1999, it has raised $7.4 million and 3 million pounds of food for local communities.

Musicians traveling aboard the trains will play more than 150 free concerts from their boxcar stage.
CP asks that attendees bring a non-perishable food or cash donation, and all donations stay with the food shelf in the community where they’re donated.

Each Holiday Train consists of 14 brightly decorated railcars, including a modified boxcar that has been turned into a traveling stage for performers. For the 15th year, CP’s elves have updated the thousands of LED lights that adorn the sides of both trains with new holiday designs.

For additional information, photos, a route map, and downloadable pictures of the two trains, visit: www.cpr.ca. Supporters can also follow the two trains on Twitter @CPHolidaytrain. #CPHolidayTrain
