Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) has operated a cross-country Christmas train for more than 10 years. It is an annual event. I took this video and photos on December 3, 2008 when it stopped for an hour outside of Barrie, Ontario.
The train helps raise money for local food banks. Santa is on board to greet children and parents can have their kids' pictures taken on the front of the locomotive while it's stopped at the small yard next to Anne Street and Highway 26.
Here's a short video I took during its stop.
I can't wait for my grandson, Knox, to be old enough to see this train. Probably in 2017 when he is almost 3 (although I doubt he'll remember it. But I will!)
