Local police say the Cadillac was reported on the tracks around 4:00 a.m. The railway is a scenic route and the tracks have been closed for the season, meaning no one was in harm’s way during the removal operation. Police found footprints leading away from the Cadillac, but could not locate whoever was driving the car.
The owner of the vehicle was contacted about the incident, but it’s unclear whether the vehicle was stolen and abandoned on the tracks. Police stated an investigation as to what occurred is underway.
