Caltrain, in partnership with Silicon Valley Community Foundation, was excited to bring back the 2013 Holiday Train, spreading joy and the community spirit of giving throughout the Bay Area. The dazzling show train, with more than 60,000 glittering lights, visited nine stations between San Francisco and San José on December 7 and 8.

This free family event facilitated the collection of over 2,000 toys for local children who might otherwise have been forgotten at this time of year. The toys were distributed after the event by The Salvation Army and Toys for Tots. The event also raised over $100,000.
