I just got back this past Thursday from being in the Los Angles area. LAX security very tight but down on the South side of Imperial Highway in El Segundo, on a hill top was a railed lookout area complete with a telescope to observe the LAX action.

I had time to spend part of a day at Cajon Pass summit. Once, the railroad security police pickup truck passed me on the opposite side of the tracks. The officer looked at me with my camera in hand, waved and kept on going down the dirt. He drove by several times and just waved.

Is the East Coast hyperventilating and the West Coast more laid back and reasonable towards railfans and picture taking? Go figure.
