TORONTO - The Grey Cup is going on the road.

The CFL has announced the historic trophy will tour Canada by train as part of the Grey Cup's 100th anniversary celebration.

The tour will make 100 stops across Canada, including all eight CFL cities.

It will also appear in Ottawa, Quebec City, Moncton and Halifax.

The Grey Cup will be aboard a specially retrofitted train that includes a car showcasing the trophy, a special museum car capturing its storied history, as well as a team car.
