    Canadian Pacific Holiday Train to pass through metro Detroit

    A holiday delight across much of Canada and the northern United States will make an appearance in metro Detroit and Michigan later this week.

    Canadian Pacific’s Holiday Train will travel through Michigan on its trip through the United States on Thursday.

    While it won’t specifically make a stop in Michigan, you’ll still be able to see the bright train if you get a spot ahead of time and prepare.

    Check out the route below:

    According to the CP Holiday Train schedule, it will be in Windsor from 6-6:30 p.m. Thursday at the CP yard at Erie St. and Janette St.

    After that, it will cross the border and into the Detroit area. Then it will travel southwest and into Ohio and Indiana before its next stop in Gurnee, Ill.

    About 1,000 feet long, the train features 14 rail cars decked out in hundreds of thousands of LED lights and designs. The only time the lights are off is when it clears US Customs.

    According to MLive, the best places to see the train include Thunderbowl Lanes in Allen Park. MLive reports the train went through Lenawee County around 10:45 p.m. last year, but people lined up as early as 8 p.m.
