Oh deer oh deer
Author: hoggerdoug

June 15, 2007 somewhere on the former BC Rail Squamish sub, our track patrol gave a heads up of a deer and fawn near the tracks. We slowed in the area mentioned and crept past the doe and very young fawn. I got a few pictures and I would image the passengers riding behind got a good view as well. Sadly over my railroad career I have encountered a lot of wildlife on the tracks and it did not end well. TheĀ  deadly encounters with the young animals still bothers me to this day.

Further along that day, took the siding at Tisdall and brief wait for a northbound train.
Rocky Mountaineer is a beautiful train. BC Rail was a great railroad. The scenery is fantastic.
thanks for looking,

Hi Doug, Great to see some young life on the side of the tracks.
You are Right, the BC Rail is a great railroad and many thanks for the
Photos you put up from day to day. The wife and I both enjoyed the trip
over the BC Rail on the Rocky and hope to get back there some other day..
Cheers Brian in New Zealand..
