The CP Rail Holiday Train stopped in the Shuswap Wednesday night.



The CP Rail Holiday train entertained hundreds of delighted Shuswap residents as it made stops in Sicamous and Salmon Arm – including the special first-ever stop in Canoe.

Canoe residents went all out for their stop, gathering the largest crowd of the night, and filling a canoe with food for local food banks. There were fireworks, bonfires and kids hockey.

It was also one of the coldest Holiday Train nights in recent memory, with temperatures below -10 C. Dressing warmly was especially important, as the train was delayed and was more than an hour past the scheduled start time when it arrived in downtown Salmon Arm.
