Tonight at 9:10 pm Minneapolis citizens will be given rare
access to historic Shoreham Yards to see a troupe of musicians aboard
Canadian Pacific Railroad's Holiday Train put on a heck of a show and
raise food and funds for food shelves. For further information surf
to www.cpr.ca, pick your favorite language from the english and
french offered, and click on the Holiday Train logo.
My late friend, railroad fanatic, and Minneapolis musician
Laurie Dow and I always followed the Holiday Train, and in her honor
I continue to. Like many Minneapolis musicians Laurie often was too
broke after paying the rent to put food on the table, so I encourage
folks to dig deep and donate plenty of food (and $$$ too) to keep our
local musicians, artists, artisans, underpaid workers, and the
jobless fed and healthy.
And before I forget, thanks to the Canadian Pacific Railroad,
who donate the use of a two million dollar locomotive, their restored
passenger train, and thousands of hours of employee time into the
Holiday Train's annual tour. Today I saw them hold up several freight
trains in sidings and even delayed the Empire Builder a bit to keep
the Holiday Train on schedule.
