MEDIA RELEASE
For Immediate Release – December 2nd, 2016

North Bay, ON – The Christmas Train, an Ontario Northland freight train decked with holiday decorations and lights will be travelling through the North departing from North Bay on Sunday, December 4th, 2016.

Thanks to the support from community organizations throughout the North, we are able to coordinate another successful tour of our Christmas Train,” says Corina Moore, President and CEO of the Ontario Northland Transportation Commission.  “It’s wonderful to be able to visit each community throughout the north and meet families, passengers and rail freight customer that continue to support Ontario Northland.”

The Christmas Train is in its 6th year and includes a new stop this year in Rouyn-Noranda, Québec.  “This new stop is exciting because we are partnering with our freight customer Glencore to celebrate the holidays and the 90th anniversary of Rouyn-Noranda’s Founderie Horne,” said Moore.
