By all means please continue to wave when you see a railfan, and encourage your fellow rails to do the same. Most of us like it a lot I think.

We are your friends and your allies, and I personally am always pleased if I get a wave and/or a couple short blasts of the horn. I think capturing a friendly wave from the cab adds a bit of human touch to the shot.

Also, as Andrew mentioned earlier, people in the picture can help capture the times as they are now. As I was taking the shot shown here I could hear the engineer saying something to the old timer nearest to me. The train was crawling along due to a 10 mph slow order at the time.

I was happy to see (and hear) these three older gentlemen having such a good time railfanning and I just felt I needed to include them.
