Train moving faster than usual plus fresh snow from Stella resulted in a more spectacular arrival than expected.

Wow. A platform full of nitwits. The snow on the tracks has to go somehere and that will most likely be off to the sides... Du'oh.
On the other hand the train engineers driving the train (does one drive a train?) must have had a very good laugh.

It's like cars & taxis that purposely hit large curbside puddles to drench any pedestrians walking too close to the street.

#3 In the UK if you do that now the police will charge you and it is a hefty fine and penalty points 8-)

I saw this in one of the newspapers over here ( UK ), I said then that it amazed me that people can't make the connection between a train with a bloody big snow plough coming towards them at a high rate of knots...and getting blasted with snow. Its the same when you're waiting to cross the road after its been raining ...and there's a big puddle of water at the kerb....I see that and step back and to one side, while a lot of sheep wait until a bus or truck goes through it and they get soaked.

Look at the snow on the pillars of the roof: track 1 has already received the same treatment.

Imagine another human-shaped silhouette there :)
