Winter 2015 has been particularly harsh to the northeastern United States and southeastern Canada. But no matter how much snow blanketed the ground from recent weather activity, it’s nothing compared to a charging train. 

In a video by YouTube user containerman2, we see the bright red engine barreling through the double snowbank on each side of the tracks. It crescendos by crashing through an additional snowbank at a railroad crossing, passing through it as if it was just air, and covering containerman2’s camera in snow.

The video was filmed in Salisbury, New Brunswick. So being Canadian, we’re sure that the train later apologized to the snow.
