Remarks & Notes 
The photo that wasn't ... after busting through several snowbanks at track speed, the engineer of CN's 2008 Santa Train was forced to put the train in emergency to avoid an idiot stuck on the tracks. The train was unable to get back up to speed before getting to the next snowbank. To watch a video shot by Ian Papp of the idiot on the tracks and the train going into emergency, click here. Video contains adult language.
