Assuming they actually stole it and considering where they potentially stole it from, they could have found a better photo at the alleged site.

What makes me suspicious is the quality of their copy. It's not very good, suggesting they took the small version of RP and upsampled it. Probably going to contact the photog and see if he's aware...

I must totally suck, no one has stolen any of my stuff, that seems to be the signal that you have "arrived"

Either that, or you get named "resident of the decade" of your town like our boy Chase has :lol:

Harder to do when you come from the home of Gary Sheffield and Billy Mays.

I'd guess he does know since that photo is not the one on RP, but does appear to be a photo from the next frame captured. It's a few feet ahead. Note the trees above the train and the white line (snow or lake) by the cab to the left).

Odd, however, both seem a bit blurry (note the number board).

So - wonder how much if anything?

The photographer stated that the photo was actually in one of BNSF's calendars and therefore they did have permission to use it.
