The Canadian Pacific Holiday Train will once again be making its way through Illinois and Wisconsin in hopes of raising spirits during the holiday season.

But, according to CPR.CA the Holiday Train "raised more than spirits across North America" last year "with donations of $1.2 million and 250,000 pounds of food."
