When it comes to speed and strength, very few things rival the power of the train. While we might love the freedom of driving around in our own cars, in extreme weather conditions they are pretty much useless. Even just some light rain can keep other means of transportation like bicycles off the road.

It takes a lot to stop a train. Usually, the only thing that causes delays are objects sitting on the tracks or broken down pieces of an engine. Even these are dealt with pretty quickly.

While cars might have a hard time handling blizzard conditions, it’s no problem for trains. They’ve got a special technique for making sure they get to their destination on time. How they handle snow will make you reconsider the way you commute.

In Canada, extreme winter weather is nothing extraordinary. Trains like this one often have to make their way through piles of accumulation to get to their destination on time.

As the train leaving New Brunswick, Canada picks up speed it creates its own personal avalanche! As it approaches a train crossing you can barely make out the locomotive hidden int he storm of snow.

As the train picks up speed, it vanishes entirely in a massive pile of snow. But that doesn’t seem to slow it down in the least…

It approaches the train crossing without slowing down. There is a huge wall of snow blocking its path. Can the driver not see what’s right in front of him?

It would appear that his eyes are working just fine! The conductor leads the train through the huge snowy buildup at top speed leaving an eruption of snow in its wake.

How on Earth does the driver even see what he’s doing in situations like this? It’s crazy that they caught this moment on film.
