It’s free to participate in any of the festive events that accompany the Christmas Train 2019. But, anyone attending is asked to bring food for a local food bank, or donate whatever they can afford.

Taking part in the fight against hunger is important to Canadian railways. Their aim is to help those less fortunate at this time of the year.

Catch the train as it leaves Montreal’s EXO station, or an event down the line somewhere. Whatever the case, you’re guaranteed to have a blast.

The Beautiful Band, along with musician and actor Alan Doyle are just two of the well-known names entertaining the crowds along the train’s route.

Performing in Montreal West, and at the train’s next stop — the Beaconsfield commuter station in Quebec, are several other big stars.

You might catch a performance by singer-songwriters Madeline Merlo or Scott Helman, or perhaps Vishten, with their Acadian folk music. Artists even perform as the train is moving, on an open boxcar that doubles as a stage.


No matter how exciting the Christmas Train can be, you can’t buy tickets to ride it. It’s not open to the public. This one is reserved only for CP employees and their families, along with invited guests and people who work closely with the railway.

Tens of thousands of Christmas lights decorate the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train. And for many Canadians seeing it speeding through the countryside is a highlight of the festive season.
