    The Canadian Pacific Holiday Train has hit the rails again and will be visiting over 150 communities across our network. 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 its inception in 1999, we’ve raised more than $6.4 million and over 2.6 million pounds of food in the U.S. and Canada. — cpr.ca

    The illuminated lettering on the side of the train is based on Mandate, a script typeface that was designed by Robert Hunter Middleton for Ludlow in 1934. It is digitally available as Freehand 521.
