Tune in to the sights and sounds of the Holiday Train
New CD/DVD release and revved website just in time for the holidays
CALGARY, Nov. 27 /CNW/ - This week the CPR Holiday Train program officially launches its eighth season and plans to enrich the experience of fans across Canada, the Northeastern and Midwestern United States with a few
extra treats: a Holiday Train CD/DVD and an interactive website that will track the Train's journey through diary entries, pictures and video.
The Story of the Holiday Train is a two-disk set. Produced by Randall Prescott, one of Canada's most awarded producers, the DVD features footage from the trains as they traveled through cities, towns and communities. Get a behind the scenes look at what goes into getting these trains out on the tracks for North America's largest rolling food bank fundraiser. From the CPR employees who volunteer countless hours to decorate the trains, to those who make sure the shows run seamlessly, from poignant interviews with food banks,
coordinators and entertainers, to touching stories and magical moments from communities across North America, the DVD is a documentary beautifully underscored by the songs of Holiday Train performers past and present.
The performers singing on the DVD, the likes of Duane Steele and Tracey Brown, are also found on the 12 song CD, which makes up The Story of the Holiday Train. Other artists contributing to this compilation of original
music and holiday classics from the Holiday Train include performers from this year's entertainment line-up; singer/songwriter Pat Flynn, folk-rocker Willy
Porter, Lisa Brokop and rock group Wide Mouth Mason. The Story of the Holiday Train CD and DVD set will be for sale at all Holiday Train events and online through the CPR store.
When heading online to www.cpr.ca to check out The Story of the Holiday Train CD, be sure to explore all the exciting new features on the Holiday Train website which had more than 120,000 visits in 2005. This year, follow
both the Canadian and the U.S Holiday Train through an on-line diary and share your own comments. Updated regularly, the Holiday Train diary will include pictures and short stories as it attempts to capture a handful out of the thousands of magical moments from both trains on their two-week journey.
Use the website to get up-to-date Holiday Train event schedules, see clips from the new DVD, hear some tunes from the new CD, download posters, try the train simulator, track how much money has been raised for the food banks and even view video of some of the performances.
