The brightly lit-up and decorated train raises money and collects food for local food banks every year on its journey across most of the country.

The Canadian train, which leaves Beaconsfield, Que., on Nov. 25, carries performers Melanie Doane, Crystal Shawanda, Jim Cuddy, Brothers Dube, Doc Walker and Matt Dusk, although not all performers will be at every stop.

The train is expected to stop in Winnipeg on the evening of Dec. 2 before passing through Portage la Prairie on its way to an evening stop in Minnedosa on Dec. 3. It'll stop west of the Minnedosa rail station on the north side of the yard, at about 7:45 p.m.

The next day, the train will make its final Manitoba stop in Shoal Lake, at 9 a.m.

Westman residents have a chance this year to also see the U.S. version of the Holiday Train. This year's American train will pass through North Dakota in mid-December, and is scheduled to stop in Minot at 7:30 p.m. on Dec. 18, at the Main Street railroad crossing.

The American train carries performers The Claytones, Willy Porter and Tracey Brown, and will finish its run in Weyburn, Sask., on Dec. 19.
