Some interesting stuff there Shane.The Harassment ( if you can call it that ) of Railroad photographers seems to have eased up a good deal in the last couple of years.Seems like there was a post here every other day of someone being detained by police or RR authorities for pointing a camera at a train.Of course,some  behaviour displayed by  Rail enthusiasts warrents some scrutiny at times.

Based on some of those calls, all of which were interesying, some people just have too much time on their hands.

Apparently just enough time to teach their pet turkey how to ride a bike.
