Holiday Train

(viewed 970 times)
Bookmark and Share
This year, Canadian Pacific's Holiday Train made a stop at the Montreal West station. Although the Montreal West Junction was once a busy station, giving the small town its name, it been a long time since anything more exciting than a commuter train passed through the centre of town. It was fun to watch the illuminated train coming down the tracks and pulling into the station. The last box car opened up into an outdoor stage for a short concert of Christmas songs such as Run, Run Rudolph. Then the stage was folded back up into the train, and it disappeared into the night!

Wow, Love this. I am a lover of the old locomotives. In the UK it is the old steam trains that are brought out to run the christmas specials.

I was intrigued by this. It's like for a short moment, it changed the rules of what trains should do. Beautiful.

Love the little story! As with Helen's post, this is what an Advent Calendar is all about! Each picture and story is a doorway for us to peek into another world we'd never know about.
