What is the holiday train?
  by FL9AC
 
Metro-North operates a "holiday train" that makes stops at all the outlying points/yards to thank all the employees for their hard work and dedication. It's a nice gesture to the workers with all the big wigs coming out to say thanks and shake hands and such. Consist is the three inspection cars and a P32AC-DM or two depending where it goes.

The three cars with a BL20 south and a Gennie north went to GCT, I hear it is going to Poughkeepsie and New Haven on Wednesday 12/8
