A week’s worth of snow is no match for a powerful locomotive, as one Salisbury, New Brunswick man found out. After patiently filming a Canadian Railway locomotive plow through the snow, he got a cold, wet surprise as the train crossed the road.

When the locomotive reached the road, the pile of snow built up from road plows exploded into the air, covering the train and also the photographer. “I’m not sure how the train crew can even see with all that snow on the locomotive’s nose!” he writes.

A few storms have coated New Brunswick with snow since late January, including the Blizzard of 2015 which brought three feet of snow to southern New England, and then tracked north into the Canadian Maritimes.
