Record Year for Holiday Train

Posted: Updated:

It was a record setting year for one of North America's most iconic rolling holiday traditions.

Organizers announced that Canadian Pacific's Holiday Train had it's most successful trek, raising over $2 million and collecting more than 150 tons of non-perishable food from over 150 communities along their railways in the United States and Canada.  Everything collected was gathered and distributed back into the local communities the train made stops in.

Over 3,500 pounds of food items were collected during the train's stop in Minot on December 18th.  The Minot Area Homeless Coalition was also given a check for $6,000 from Canadian Pacific representatives.
