The CP Holiday Train was the staple of many winters during the holiday season in years past, having to be held virtually due to the pandemic.

Now they're on the tracks once again, with stops across the US and Canada from the middle of November to December.

They'll be doing a Canadian tour that'll stretch from coast to coast, while the other tour starts down in Missouri and ends here in the southeast.

The CP Holiday Train will be in Estevan at 3:15 PM on December 18th, with performers Alan Doyle & Kelly Prescott attending.

Salem Woodrow, a spokesperson for Candian Pacific, says that the return is exciting for the company.

"Canadian Pacific is very excited and proud to be bringing back the CP Holiday Train to more than 160 communities in Canada and the United States for the 24th year to raise money, food, and awareness for local food banks and hunger issues."

Over the years, the CP Holiday Train has gathered up a lot of money and food that's going to families in need.

"We are proud to say since 1999 when the program started, we have raised more than $21 million dollars and 5 million pounds of food," said Woodrow, "So you can expect to see our beautiful train of light as always rolling into the community to raise money and food for the local food bank."

Woodrow says that while the virtual show they put on was great, being back in person will be even better.

"We were very happy to be able to bring our virtual concert to people's homes during the pandemic because we wanted to keep people safe and respect all of the local rules and regulations around COVID prevention, but we are happy to be back out on the rails this year to bring our beautiful train of light to more than 160 communities across our network."
