Our train (#50) whacked a deer a mile or so north of Salisbury Mills this morning, got it stuck in the cow-catcher, and dragged it all the way into the station. The whole time it was trapped there, it was kicking up ballast that was making a gods-awful racket on the underside of the train! We ended up getting on our way eventually, but lost HEP, so no lights and heat. nasty bit of business. Props to the conductor who had to go unstuck the poor beast.
