It’s a glorious beast (Picture: YouTube)
This is the Holiday Train.
Forget the Coca-Cola truck – this marvelous locomotive has to be the most festive vehicle imaginable.
With its massively over the top, bright decorations, it looks like a child’s design come to life.
It’s also a majestic sight at night, so it’s no surprise that people stayed up late to catch a glimpse of it going past.
But, because this is 2016 and we can’t have nice things, this happened:
Life is unfair
We love that they kept filming, though
It’s just so crushingly inevitable.
Huge respect though to all the determined trainspotters that turned up, and kept filming the moment even as it was ruined by a normal, boring passenger train.
The clip was posted on Reddit, where one person wrote: ‘Well that passenger train got a hell of a view.’
It is believed to have been shot in Canada, but the spectacular train is also running through the US.
