ALEXANDRIA — Canadian Pacific Railroad is excited to bring the Holiday Train to back to communities across its network.

This year is especially important, as it is the first year since COVID-19 began that the CP Holiday Train returns in person to collect food donations directly from communities along our network.

The CP Holiday Train is scheduled to arrive in Alexandria on Dec. 15 at 11:30 a.m. The show will be at the Eighth Avenue East crossing by the Hubbard Feed Mill, from 11:45 a.m.-12:15 p.m.

The Holiday Train is about 1,000 feet in length with 14 brightly decorated rail cars. Each car is decorated with hundreds of thousands of LED lights and holiday designs celebrating the spirit of the giving season. Visitors can enjoy free musical performances by Alan Doyle and Kelly Prescott and share food or cash donations to benefit our local community.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
