The Canadian Pacific Holiday Train has hit the rails again and will be visiting more than 150 communities across this region.

Each event features a boxcar stage, a lineup of great musical talent and a contribution to the local food bank.

Everyone who attends is encouraged to donate food and money, which stays in their community.Since it's inception in 1999, the festive campaign has raised more than $6.4 million and more 2.6 million pounds of food in the U.S. and Canada.Details of the Canadian Holiday Train schedule and entertainers are below:

The Canadian Holiday Train will began its three-week journey on Nov. 28 from Beaconsfield, Que., finishing up in Port Moody, B.C., on Dec. 18. Entertainers on the Canadian train include Doc Walker, Miss Emily, and the Brothers Dube.

The train will make several stops in Northwestern Ontario Tuesday. It will be in Marathon at 1 p.m., Schreiber at 3:45 p.m., and Nipigon at 6:30 p.m..

It will then roll into Thunder Bay's CP Rail station on Syndicate Avenue at 9:45 p.m.

It will then carry on to stops in Ignace, Dryden, Vermilion Bay and Kenora on Wednesday.

Well then Nanoo, drive to Nipigon at see it at 6:30pm then. I can't believe how selfish you are to say this is a shame. This is a train that is going cross country, obviously they are not going to make it to every town or city at a time that pleases everyone.

a great way to contribute to the local food bank, good thing the train's arrival is not dependent on city council, like the way they brought us a visit from the CFL 100th. Grey Cup across Canada train tour

It should really be scheduled to get here earlier. Anything after 8:30 is too late for the kids.
