The popular Holiday Train is rolling into the Milwaukee area on Monday, December 5, according to the 2016 schedule.

Every year, the Canadian Pacific train travels more than 100,000 miles, raising money and collecting food for local food banks in North America.

Last year, the train made its first stop in Southeastern Wisconsin as the result of two Girl Scouts petitioning to get the train to stop in Wauwatosa. This year, there's another Tosa stop, plus some others in the area.

Here is the regional schedule for this year. The times are when the train will arrive. Each stop is about 30 minutes and features a performance and seasonal festivities. A local nonprofit will collect food and financial donations. All donations stay within that community.

Monday, December 5 at 6:50 p.m. -- Milwaukee downtown Amtrak Depot

Tuesday, December 6 at 4:45 p.m. -- Wauwatosa Harwood Avenue crossing

Tuesday, December 6 at 6:15 p.m. -- Hartland at Cottonwood Ave. and Pawling Ave.

Tuesday, December 6 at 7:45 p.m. -- Watertown at Brandt Quirt Park
