The CP Holiday Train chugged into Salmon Arm to the joy of hundreds who had gathered next to the tracks.

The 21st annual holiday train featured extravagantly decorated cars and a performance from musicians Terri Clark and Dallas Smith.

Following speeches from Shuswap MP Mel Arnold, MLA for the Shuswap Greg Kyllo and Salmon Arm mayor Alan Harrison, a CP worker presented a $7,000 cheque to the Salvation Army.

Attendees were asked to bring donations of food and/or money for local food banks.
