Canadian Pacific's Holiday Train

MILWAUKEE — Officials with Canadian Pacific (CP) Railway just announced the Holiday Train will soon set out once again to entertain thousands of people — and celebrate 20 years of collecting food and raising funds for food banks across North America.

The U.S.-bound train will depart from Montreal on Nov. 25 and head south.
