Netizens were in for a pleasant surprise when stunning videos of a train standing at the Taradevi Station in the Shimla-Kalka heritage — completely covered in snow — went viral. This is the perfect amount of snow one needs to see to smile through the day.
Social media users soon began to compare the train to the ‘Hogwarts Express’ we have seen in the Harry Potter movies.

Parked at a snow-covered station, the train and its surroundings look like a scene straight out of Harry Potter.
India's Hogwarts 😊😊
