Meet the Little General and Puffer Belly Express – CP’s mini-train fleet!
The Community Outreach and Mini-Train team visits communities across the CP network to share the message of rail safety, reminding everyone to stay clear of tracks and trains. Some events may include one of our ¼ scale trains, the Little General and the Puffer Belly Express.
CP employees and their families are the backbone of the Community Outreach and Mini Train program. Our volunteers undergo specific training on maintenance and operation of the mini trains to make sure that events run safely.
The safety and security of residents and our employees in the communities where we operate is our top priority. Safe behaviour around tracks and trains prevents injuries and fatalities. For more information on our rail safety program, visit
