As the train stopped shortly after dark on Saturday, Dec. 14, the crowd numbering in the hundreds was treated to roaring bonfires and live music from Terri Clark and Dallas Smith as they took in the festive lighting on the train. The Eagle Valley Community Support Society’s food bank was treated to a $5,500 donation from the railway.
