Oneonta, N.Y. (WBNG Binghamton) -- The Canadian Pacific Holiday Train of Lights is again hitting the rails to raise food, money and awareness in the fight against hunger, and it will make its annual stop in Oneonta on Sunday, Nov. 27. 

The event is scheduled to take place at 1:20 p.m. near the Neahwa Park railway crossing in Oneonta. 

Spectators will enjoy the sites of a freight train decorated with hundreds of thousands of festive lights and the sounds of great musical talent.
