A videotape released Monday by Metrorail, Washington's mass transit system, shows a deer running through a train station as startled passengers watch.

"We've named him Rudolph the Blue Line Reindeer," Metro spokeswoman Lisa Farbstein said.

The video shows the deer walking around the mezzanine at the Addison Road-Seat Pleasant station in Maryland, running down an escalator, then darting down the platform past a waiting train. The animal then jumped onto the tracks, avoiding the electrified third rail, and headed off into the woods surrounding the aboveground station, Farbstein said.
