" Coal-Powered Cookie Train Album Release" was an animated video (1 minute, 40 seconds in length) originally posted to YouTube by FiMFlamFilosophy on September 22, 2012. It was created to promote the release of FiMFlamFilosophy's "Coal-Powered Cookie Train" album, and features characters from the TV show "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic."
It was still listed on the creator's website as an Animated Short up until the website was redesigned, but trying to play it simply returns the message "The uploader has not made this video available." Based on the comments on the same page, it may have initially became unavailable sometime between August 17, 2013, and October 14, 2013. The reason for its removal is unknown, as it is one of only two entirely original fan animations that seem to have been removed from FiMFlamFilosophy's YouTube channel (the other is the Mentally Advanced Series Redirect Animation).
Other removed videos that did not feature original animations, such as the non-negatively-numbered episodes of the Mentally Advanced Series itself (which were caught by YouTube's Content ID system due to using scenes from MLP:FIM, despite the fact that this was done for the purpose of parody), have been preserved and re-uploaded by fans and/or are available on the creator's website, but this does not seem to be the case for this video or the animation used in the Redirect Animation videos. Thus, no additional copies of the video appear to exist, and the only records of its animated content that still remain are six screenshots from the animator's DeviantArt page (links are provided in the "External links" section of this article) and this thumbnail-sized screenshot from YouTube itself.
