Thursday, February 5, 2015, 11:13 AM - New Brunswick's recent historic snowfall proved no match for Canadian National Railway locomotive 2304 (ES44DC).

On Feb. 3, a video uploaded to YouTube showed the red train plowing through giant snow drifts at lightning speed as it lead the daily CN manifest train 406 West (Moncton, N.B. to Saint John, N.B.) at Salisbury, N.B. 

"I'm not sure how the train crew can even see with all that snow on the locomotive's nose!," wrote the uploader on Live Leak.
