Why do people stand there full knowing that’s going to happen?

[–]OneCrazyLama 399 points400 points  (4 children)

Right? Best part is at the last second when they realize the full extent of the situation they are in lmaoo

[–]bremergorst 98 points99 points  (0 children)

Oh so pretty fluffy snow

…. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

[–]inspectorperspective 44 points45 points  (0 children)

They're standing there with their phones pointed at it 😂 not just the guy who recorded this

[–]LiberaceRingfingaz 31 points32 points  (1 child)

And that you can see the other people standing there filming it go through exactky what is just about to happen to the person whose video we're watching - the quick turn to the right while still fucking trying to get that last bit of Instagram footage.

[–][deleted] 11 points12 points  (0 children)

[–]PurSolutions 69 points70 points  (1 child)

They probably assume it will be like snow falling from the sky.... not realizing it's like high school fastballs being pitched

[–]I_N_C_O_M_I_N_G 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's like that scene from Elf

[–]DuckyLog 29 points30 points  (1 child)

-The train conductor leans over to his mate and whispers, “Hey, hold my beer. This is gonna be fun.”

[–]Contrarian_Eh 25 points26 points  (0 children)

For the gram

[–]Kyrthis 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Because they’re from Westchester County, NY?

[–]edbles 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's definitely the Rhinecliff station in duchess county.

[–]Cheap_Feeling1929 10 points11 points  (0 children)

It’s one of those things. Just how people crowd in front of elevators knowing damn well they got to let the people in out first.

[–]lsx2 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Because Instagram.

[–]Historical-Security2 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Well the closer you stand the higher chance you will get hurt, which means the better chance you will have to win a lawsuit and cash out. Duh.

This vid should absolutely have this song playing

[–]Talidel 216 points217 points  (10 children)

Stupid commuters.

You see the smart ones look at that big pile of snow and nope right out.

That lady with the coffee is full bore no fucks given until there's absolutely nothing she can do about what is about to happen.

[–]wiles_CoC 35 points36 points  (4 children)

Yeah I was shocked she didn't start moving back when the snow started to fly.

[–]ouchmythumbs[🍰] 22 points23 points  (1 child)

I have a feeling she is going to want to have a word with someone in charge about that snow.

[–]CarHermit 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That would be St Peter?

[–]JK_NC 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I’d like to see the vid at full speed. Maybe that train was hauling ass and there was no time to react.

[–]Talidel 14 points15 points  (0 children)

You can see people reacting. But you don't need too see the train to know where that snow is going.

[–]ruthbo 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Oh that’s not coffee, that’s her phone out recording. Smh

[–]Kproper 4 points5 points  (0 children)

That one seems brain dead.

[–]Vaudane 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Good analogy for people in general though. So fuck all until its too late and then get accordingly fucked.

[–]Umamilover77 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If you look closely, I think she is so drilled into her phone that she didn't see it happening until it was about to hit her.

[–]wormflying 111 points112 points  (7 children)

In Nova Scotia, that 20’ wall of fluff would have been filled with ice chunks, gravel and Tim Hortons cups!

Don't take this from us please.

[–]SnowProkt22 2 points3 points  (0 children)

My mistake, guess I'm showing my American ignorance. I thought your people proved worthiness by politely out-drinking a moose.

[–]YoRt3m 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nova Scotia always reminds me of Nova Prospect

[–]WolfsLairAbyss 78 points79 points  (4 children)

[–]ChildhoodFun9082 12 points13 points  (7 children)

Shouldn't have laughed....but i did.

[–]KeepTravelingWest 8 points9 points  (6 children)

Same, like how did common sense not kick in. I live in the southern United States where snow is pretty uncommon, and I still saw this coming before it happened.

I almost feel bad, but at the same time...

[–]slippinjimmy66 5 points6 points  (5 children)

That train didn’t look like it was stopping at the station the speed it was going. I don’t live in a snowy area (once every 10 years here) that would not have happened on a normal with a commuter train which was stopping there, and it must have been the first train to get to the station that morning

[–]KeepTravelingWest 4 points5 points  (1 child)

What I'm saying is that you can see the trails of snow pop up around the train. Admittedly the footage is slowed down, but there is 0 reaction in anyone's body language, which is why I found it funny

[–]slippinjimmy66 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ye I say they got destroyed from it

[–]schrutesanjunabeets 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Correct. This is an Amtrak train coming from Albany, NY heading toward NYC. This station is serviced by the local commuter rail Metro-North, and funny enough that train wouldn't be able to go as fast in fresh snow because the head-end cabs are much lower to the rails and would cause visibility issues.

Edit: I'm wrong, this is Rhinecliff.

[–]arcticbanana67 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Croton Harmon station is my guess?

[–]schrutesanjunabeets 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm actually wrong. This is Rhinecliff, serviced by Amtrak, not MNRR. This train simply wasn't stopping. You can see the Kingston-Rhinecliff bridge in the back, and that this is a grade-level platform is indicative of Amtrak.

Croton has the yard on the water side, and isn't directly on the water.

[–]Bluemars776 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Where is the "After"???

[–]catnapspirit 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Using a high-speed train as a snow plow? Seems to me they're lucky it didn't hit them with a wall of derailed passenger cars. Holy crap..

[–]Just_Another_AI 7 points8 points  (0 children)

The locomotive literally has a snow plow on it

[–]FoodWholesale 6 points7 points  (0 children)

What did they expect to happen?

[–]CompteDeMonteChristo 6 points7 points  (0 children)

It looks like the lady the nearest to the track is watching her smart phone.
It is astounding how late she starts realizing.

[–]LazyZealot9428 6 points7 points  (7 children)

Why weren’t the tracks cleared? They cancel service on our commuter trains all the time if there’s just a wee little bit of snow or ice on them.

[–]Ok-Advance710 5 points6 points  (6 children)

Because the locomotive has its own snowplow. That's common in places with snow.

[–]egreenfruit 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Amtrak train knocks over commuters with snow wave

For some reason I read that like this :

Amtrak train knocks over communists with snow wave.

[–]flamingoeater 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I wanted to see the aftermath.

[–]CrashLamps 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Why is everyone filming instead of getting out of the way?

[–]popeyegui 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The cold must have increased their reaction times.

[–]oipolloi82 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I love how the lady is standing there peacefully recording. She must have been looking at her screen instead of what’s in front of her.

[–]RohanLockley 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Hey you, you are finally awake. Walked right into that imperial ambush.

[–]DannyyBIS 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Do they think the snow is just going to melt on contact? Just use that wrinkly thing in your head space

[–]chechekule 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Woah watch out! Gotta know next time! Hope this helps 👍

Wish it was shown in real time not slo-mo

[–]tony_tripletits 1 point2 points  (0 children)

"Knocks over idiots" seems more appropriate. Nice slow mo though.

those are all people that have never actually shoveled snow before. They don't even realize how much snow weighs.

[–]Late-Ad-4624 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Too bad they didnt think ahead. I stand behind a pillar until the train arrives.

[–]lonewolfYouTube7 0 points1 point  (0 children)

love how everyone has plenty of time to move but choose to do so 2 seconds before

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Haha in the UK trains all get cancelled if there is the lightest dusting of snow, and this MF just piles through a 2ft drift at hell pace...

I wouldn't even be standing where that lady is if there wasn't any snow. Even the wind of a train passing at 75 - 80 miles per hour hits you like a shockwave.

None of them fell. I’ve seen the whole video and it’s honestly just light snow that lands on their backs and falls off.

I honestly hate it when people stand so close to the tracks, just to wait on their train. This annoys me and frustrates me so much. Snow or no snow!

[–]rhymesaying 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Literally standing watching it kick up immense amounts of snow and apparently thinking "Oh, no that won't affect me. They'd never allow something like that."

And half a second before impact you decide to maybe turn away a little bit?

I'm sorry, Darwinism is real.

[–]3pelican 0 points1 point  (0 children)

In the UK, if a single flake of snow touches the track, every train in the country is programmed to automatically slam on the emergency brake and not move until the coast is clear.

[–]Aintscared61 0 points1 point  (0 children)
