Nice photo.  
I didn't know that CP (or anyone for that matter) did a lighted train.

Beautiful Photo Grant..

I just joined Freerails, so I'm a little late with this since it's the middle of March! But we go to the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train show every year when it stops in a nearby city...got a video this year that isn't too awful bad...

Here is the train arriving In Dubuque Iowa....this was December 6th, 2012 at 8:30 pm.

For those that don't know about the CP Holiday train, it rolls into towns, collects food & donations for the local food pantries, it even matches the first 250,000 donated I believe it was. And they roll down the side on one of the boxcars and put on a fantastic mini concert that lasts about a half hour...super cool thing to do that supports a great cause...

Next year I'll be more timely with this!
