    I saw it last night in Woodstock. This was my first time seeing it up close. I put my pictures in the weekly photo thread. I tell ya, CPR has some real class, putting on a show like this and making a donation to the local Salvation Army for their work with the local food bank.

    I hadn't heard about it this year -- one sighting reported in Coburg and then Parry Sound. Whereto from Woodstock?
    Is there a link to a schedule? I already have the hat (and it doesn't say "Lion Tamer")

    I'd heard about this -- there is a schedule on the CP website. I wanted to go to see it but it was in the Distillery District of Toronto around 7pm last Monday night. We didn't go because it was a school night and because it was extremely cold, around -10ÂșC! :eek: Rob

    There are a lot of pictures of it on Railpictures.net. The train is headed by engine 9824 so if you do a search for that, you will find the pictures.

    There are actually 2 different trains. 1 goes through Canada, and the other (that I saw) goes through southern Ontario and the US.
