The Holiday Train in Plattsburg was a much bigger deal than I
expected (not having read the newspaper, but only CP's schedule web
page, which indicated no public event). There was quite a crowd at
the handsome old station (my photograph from trackside was taken 20
minutes before the train arrived), a large multiple of the number
who've been there for Amtrak I'm sure. Flashing emergency vehicles
lining the streets on parade duty....

My photograph of mid-train (from streetside) gives an idea of the
scene, but the newspaper has a better photo of the locomotive than I
Today see
