great so much fun. with two hours to go before new year passengers on the moscow st petersburg train up eagerly on packing their bags bringing out the food and starting to see out the old year. i'm not actually. meant to be here just sing us softly a lot of this is my big mama she isn't supposed to be here. had planned to celebrate in moscow decorated a tree prepared salads and invited the neighbors but before the party she went to the railway station to see off her daughter and friend but when bidding the two farewell the door closed and she was aboard when the train pulled off. the train was going to stop but it kept going and going under a very chair without her mom but here's a. lifelong dream has been of a new year's adventure but only now as
4:33 pm
a pensioner is that dream finally coming true yes and i wanted to hit the emergency stop but they talked me out of it but i didn't want to spoil their adventure trying to get something out of it mom has made friends of the conductor and he's promised her a free return ticket. eager eager we hope he'll be our father in law in the future so we can travel this of petersburg for free. unfortunately it turns out that uncle eagle already has a wife and a patient one train conductor doesn't get to celebrate the big holiday with her until january the second. usually rings in the new year with his passengers. i'm the conductor father for us asked me to give this to you even though you're on the train so remember as you. are sure. everyone is happy to celebrate new year on the train. celebrating at home means t.v. salads and so forth people have these same things every year people want to
4:34 pm
celebrate new year on the train because i don't know what do they say it's cool it's different. just go over has also become tired of t.v. and festive salads so she decided to go at the very last moment. hasn't paid for this new year's train ride to st petersburg. it's been years i had nowhere to go and no one to celebrate new year with all my friends are far from moscow and my family doesn't celebrate new year so i ended up alone i went to red square but there was nothing special there just a bunch of tourists and so i decided simply to catch a train because you know there's always something interesting on a train ran a couple groups of friends get on so there's never a dull moment so i was sent down in the vestibule between the two doors there was four minutes before departure but when the conductor source me and the other girl
4:35 pm
it was me who brought her here she also had no one to celebrate new year with my main mosque. because of the holiday the conductor didn't kick the girls off and there was yet another new year miracle for the two friends when moscow resident nikolai let them travel with him nicholas going to st petersburg to meet his girlfriend they've known each other through an online game for a year now maybe even had a virtual online wedding recently but they haven't actually seen each other yet the confirmed bachelor has decided on new year's day to shift from the virtual world and proposed to his internet girlfriend in the real one. the other i'm a fool but why. twenty one and i'm forty three but as fun i thought it would be a good idea. girls everything ok. sunshine here you go champaign it cost seven hundred fifty rubles if you will send it. waitress angela always celebrates new year with her passengers.
4:36 pm
the passengers on new year's eve are just fabulous. i really like the way it has all turned out there's a very festive atmosphere in carriage number nine i was surprised at how interesting those people are they had prepared so well. well after all they knew that they were going to see the new year on a train there's a tree animals in every table and the decorations and some incredible house on their heads and they're even children too these are not just traveling they're doing it with all their part having found themselves on a train this new year's eve they made up their minds to make the best of a situation. who wants this useless stuff who wants some ten jury and. who wants a noble though a tendering again happy new year i'll give this useful thing to you to.
4:37 pm
the new year i wish you all happiness and be happy. here. petersburg native alexei and expected to be drinking champagne with his girlfriend diana in moscow but he ended up drinking beer on his own they arrived in the morning so the two could celebrate new year together but that evening she dumped him for a nothing. like they bought a ticket for the next train and headed home. for some new year makes dreams come true while for others it's just a fact of life now it so happened that i'm celebrating on the train and she chose another i can't do anything about it. but alexei continues to believe and to wait he keeps his cell phone close by. if she calls to

4:39 pm
a life i hope that this woman mid-south to your expectations was most likely she will turn out to be quite different than you've imagined like but look here is age isn't important what is important is that most likely turn out to be a completely different person than you imagine her to be when you play games on line with your girls i guess we'll meet again. there's a look at his phone remains silent. it's no good if someone's on their own it shouldn't be like this where the new year is a holiday and people shouldn't be alone. and many find a partner young men and women and not only the young. the senior citizens and all kinds of people travel with us. and many get acquainted on the train you board the
4:40 pm
train brings people together. what i mean to say is that when people are in the metro or when walking down the street or stand in line at a store they're less likely to say hello i like you while on the train in a pleasant atmosphere with a friendly conductor and a bunch of other factors it brings people together and for many it turns out to be . very good. people start families and give birth to children this is very good that's what happiness is about. all good and legal matter a year ago this very train. look honest we met at the dining car in fact to accord each others i went into was trying to figure something out with the train conductor and i asked him where the dining car was which well swore there wasn't any music on the train yeah that was it and there's none today either they still haven't sorted that out and then i headed to the dining car to find there he asked if i could sit at my table i was traveling
4:41 pm
alone i simply decided to go to st petersburg at new year so that was how we met it was all searching who began talking at first i didn't think that it could lead to a relationship that you listed but i hope that i couldn't see equal in january first to be honest but it so happened that we've been together for three hundred sixty seven days now which makes eight thousand eight hundred eighty four hours together and you lost them last year they travelled with us yes we remember them and they remember me at the time i did not know they were a couple they didn't look like a couple yet then the girl was not as close to him as she is now this year she positively radiates war. i had little side story of my trip had the code name drowning in the gulf of finland with a camera it was found that this was a pretty interesting ideas so we decided to do it together she said you could spend a day later met my mother in four days after that he proposed to me. i just don't.
4:42 pm
think us because we even brought them together so to say you moved the goal was not us but rather the railroad that became their matchmaker if they met on our train perhaps it was destiny do you have a big family no not big only three father mother me now you. going to marry in russia where in china is that a question our proposal. just a few minutes a left before new year nicholas going to congratulate his future wife. picking up both of us have lives a row we'll sort it out it's not a big deal. is that even the little more you know on this night i'm not exactly waiting for a miracle i just want people to experience something that's well like watching people coming together people are traveling it would be with us maybe for the first
4:43 pm
time they're meeting each other this is a huge there's a man from egypt and a guy from china. they've got food and because our people are treating them to russian champagne. and will keep us money probably don't understand any russian but they see this atmosphere and it's very interesting for them. do you like our traditions yes i like have a fun yes we're going to live in china russia and russia must go on for a long one year and that are you enjoying it. it's very cold. here today we have people who want to be here they love this holiday and they decided to celebrate new year on the train even older people said it's romantic it's simply great it's cool. to. play means to new.

4:50 pm
the fact that the city's failed well for a good new year whether it's raining. but a year ago it was completely different and the colors were different the sky was blue that was the single cloud in the sky despite being so relieved. so the love was a determined to retrace last year's routes to the r.h. coverage where they first cast. will remember how it was last year but i wouldn't say that the emotions are the same they are different this time. but we definitely have positive emotions i love my husband i hope he loves me of course i do. like the model we stuck to the bridge because it offered a magnificent view. of what the weather was cloudless like wasn't the delights reflecting in the water because unlike. all the loves taking photos with so she
4:51 pm
began to face grow up the reflection of the lights but at that moment i just. thought it was really it's a miracle i'm an older. than you so yeah i guess i believe in miracles. knickers and so i think we all believe in marathons some people simply forget about it but in their heart of hearts they never stop believing and then suddenly in miracle happens and it comes from somewhere deep inside it revives again and as long as we believe in something wonderful can something beautiful miracles happen quickly. first and i'm already going to work.
4:52 pm
but a miracle would come his way and in the morning he made up with his girlfriend on his way to work he received a message saying simply i was wrong i love you. when i got home i saw a message on the line my girlfriend had changed her mind and wanted to make up another she said she was wrong and i hope we won't argue again. i won't just let her go like this after all we've been together for two and a half years and i believe we are made for each other. immediately drop everything and head straight back to moscow. a ticket to moscow place. me or business economy class. difficulties make a relationship stronger if there were no problems it would be life it would be
4:53 pm
boring it was the first time i celebrated new year on the train at first i was very sad because i had to leave and i thought it would be my worst new year ever but once i got back things turned around like in a fairy tale. the overnight festivities the rest of the group visits the. this is simply great all the more so because i am an art teacher alan artist i'm just well it's not exactly a dream come true that's an exaggeration but it came quite unexpectedly kind of a surprise. we communicated with the artists we chose three rooms that focused on them just like with focus on people that we don't squander our energies but we choose and today we give greeting cards to people on the street who write.
4:54 pm
