You can get a ticket if you walk on the train tracks. It is against the law to walk on train tracks. Enforced by CN or CP police mostly.

it is being discussed on another forum as well.  apparently last friday the cn rail police and rcmp were issuing tickets to people who were in fact crossing the tracks while leaving bars such as scale, seabird and pipeline.  the tickets were issued for trespassing on cn rail property, ie the tracks.

I have also heard that they are planning to put in a fence along the tracks to keep people from crossing them. All these problems are because of fishermen climbing over trains when they are parked on the tracks while there is a train coming on the other tracks. They do not want to wait until someone falls off of a parked train or worse under an on coming train. The only ones people can blame for this happening is other fishermen, dont blame the ones writing the ticket, they are just trying to keep people safe.

A rumour of course. It's totally ok to trespass and park illegally.

Follow the rules, don't get a ticket, simple.  Only thing fishy is people that break the law and complain about it after.

yeah i got to call a duck a duck on this one. i would be guilty of trespassing too at times if i were to cross a train bridge or tracks, but at the end of the day you can't get mad at the guy giving you the ticket as hes just doing his job...its like jaywalking, everyone does it but when you get caught it sucks

Hmmm..for people who frequent those fishing bars, could be a very expensive fishing trip. Add in the costs for gas, fishing rod and tackle, plus parking tickets, and trespassing fines - just for four fish.
