CP Holiday Train 2012 Light Show
Author: GWHEN

Hello fellow Railfans
Yesterday I had the opportunity to go up to Scranton and the Tunkannock Viaduct to see the CP Holiday train for the first time. I must say it is a very impressive light show on rails.

All Pictures Except for the last picture are in Scranton.
Picture 2-3 Show DL power with the CP Holiday Train

The very last shot is on the Tunkannock Viaduct. A very impressive bridge with an even more impressive train on top of it.

Hope you all enjoyed.
Have a great day everybody.

Good stuff. This is the first time I "chased" it and it really is impressive to see. Just as impressive is the amount of people who came out to see it. I was at my parents eating dinner at 5:00 before heading back out and the local TV station's 5:00 PM news had a nice live shot and story about it from Steamtown.

We chased it as well a cpl yrs ago and it was very hard to chase it north on Rt 11 towards Binghamton with all the traffic following and pacing it!

Boxcars are rid of horrible spray paint

Nice photos. I was looking forward to seeing everyone's photos from the stop at Scranton this year as I couldn't go. I've gone the past two years, when the train came in on a Saturday and made a weekend trip out of it. I was also wondering how big the crowd would be. Here are some photos from last year. You couldn't get a clear shot of the engine due to the crowd walking around the train. Enjoy!

Very nice, especially the viaduct shot. I'd nominate that one for IOTD!
