It's been done to me many times, and I frankly don't railfan the same line ever enough to have anyone who has a personal dislike for me. First time I saw the MoPac unit it was moving very slowing toward me. I had a great shot lined up. Saw the engineer and conductor both point at me, then the conductor ran down and opened the front door.

I've also had lights turned on high beam (on the Long Island Railroad) and light turned off (to make it appear it's static train). All of these are common.
