  Dangerous Ducks Crossing
by KristaB

On our way back from Snaefel Mountain, the Electric Tram stopped.
The driver went out. Everyone was patiently waiting, behaving properly and minding their manners. But I'm from another country, nosy tourist and a VT member, so I had to get out and check what's going on.

The driver was helping little ducklings to climb over railway tracks and catch up with their mom. Their little feet were too short to climb, so his help was necessary. I was wondering how he noticed them?!
Enlarge the picture and tell me - can you see that little duckling? And he stopped the train smoothly and just in time.

hmmm ... they have those Motorola things in their pockets, so I suspect drivers were informing each other about this extremely dangerous situation.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
