Dec 02, 2005 — It's not your typical train. It's decorated with thousands of twinkling lights. And at each stop, local residents will be treated to concerts with musicians performing on a boxcar stage. It's the Holiday Train - with a mission of helping cash-strapped food banks -- on track for several stops in the US and Canada. Canadian Pacific Railway sponsors the annual train ride. The train will be in the Eastern Adirondacks tonight, with stops in Ticonderoga, Port Henry and Plattsburgh. Michel Spinard called us from the train yesterday evening. He spoke to Gregory Warner.
