CP Holiday Train coming to Montreal West and Beaconsfield

CP-Holiday-Train-2019-min

Rolling down the tracks this season, the CP Holiday train will once again arrive in the Montreal area with stops at the Montreal West and Beaconsfield Exo train stations. With its magical, brightly decorated rail cars, the train will slowly pull in to a full stop and the stage doors will then be lowered – much to the delight of the young and young at heart. A brief presentation will first take place with local food bank officials and other guests. It is all for free – but they are asking people to bring food or a monetary donation for the local food banks, whose representatives will be there to collect the donations.

Right after, the fun begins! The crowd will be entertained with a mix of traditional and modern holiday-themed songs performed by Scott Helman, Madeline Merlo and Acadian folk-music group Vishtèn. The whole event lasts about 30-45 minutes so make sure you get there on time.

When is the CP Holiday Train

This year’s Holiday Train is expected to first arrive at the MONTREAL WEST Station on TUESDAY NOVEMBER 26TH at 6:45PM, with the show between 7:00 PM – 7:30 PM. It will then move on to the BEACONSFIELD station and expected to arrive by 8:20PM with the shows between 8:30 PM – 9:00 PM. Once the band plays its farewell song, the stage door closes and the train heads off across Canada.

“The CP Holiday Train is a program that our 13,000-strong CP family has immense pride in bringing to communities every year. Access to nutritious food is a basic necessity, and food bank usage is on the rise across North America. The CP Holiday Train program is our way to help in the fight against hunger by growing awareness of this issue and providing a fun and engaging way for the public to show their support, states Keith Creel, CP’s President and Chief Executive Officer. The program has raised over $15.8 million and collected more than 4.5 million pounds of food since first began 20 years ago.
