So if you lease your car, I can just come and ride in it at my discretion?
I think of it this way. If someone is renting a home and I am taking photos from their front lawn, and they request that I leave, I simply will not. However, if their landlord (the actual owner of the property) asks for me to leave, then obviously, I'm going to leave. This is what the "photographers right" clearly states.

I don't want to sound like a preacher sermonizing, but why do some believe that they are arrogantly entitled to do what they want for the sole purpose of their pleasure? Right or wrong, agree or disagree with Amtrak's policy, stupid as it may seem, but it is their right to protect their property, assets and employees as they see fit. When I was with CN, I don't recall in my rules instructions classes that my job was to include being a prop for someones trackside hobby photos.
Well said and I do see your point, although, it was clearly visible that no signs at or near the station platform stated that photography was strictly prohibited, therefore allowing me to capture my quick image. As I previously said, the property is leased and the owner of the property (I believe the City of Charleston owns it, and if that is the case, the station would be considered "public" property, therefore definitely providing me with the right to photograph there) has not stated that photography is restricted.

The only arguement presented was better range, gain and less interferrence. Really? Risk it all for that? And to Chase and Chris Paulhamus who are "confused", my opinion is simply that, my opinion. And Chris, the rape analogy is totally irrelevant to this, seriously. Just take a step back and analyize this from a different perspective, you may see it differently and understand that this is not an arguement or combative standing from me, I'm just trying to help some stay out of trouble.
Kevin, not quite understanding your logic on this one. Giving us the "right" to photograph where we please. You seem to be think us "railfans" are bad people thinking we have the right to take photos wherever we want and own CSX radios.

Your comment regarding the weed was quite irrelevant and there was no need to post it.
