Early talk from people associated with the CP Holiday train indicates that this colorful train will return for the 2012 season.  Her display and performance in Scranton will actually be earlier than usual.  Wednesday, November 21, the day before Thanksgiving is when this train will appear.
 
As always, there are no tickets to ride or for the performance.  Cash and food donations are the suggested "payment" to help out area food banks.  
 
See you then.

If I'm viewing the map correctly, it looks like this year's route will begin south of Scranton.

Thanks for the head's up.  I was hoping it would be the Saturday after Thanksgiving as that worked for me to be able to get up there.  I also heard several people say that they had their larger crowds the past few years, when the train visited on Saturday.

Thanks for the heads-up. Missed it last year, hoping to see it this year.

Canadian Pacific has posted their schedule for the 2012 Holiday Train.  Unfortunately for me, I will be unable to attend this year as it's Wednesday, November 28th.  I was fortunate to attend the past few years when the train came in on a Saturday.

Thank you for the correct date, OCtrainguy.  November 28 is the date.
With the changes in Canadian Pacific's upper management, it is good to see this tradition continue.
