Most crews don't mind railfans...a few might make fun of us at times, but that comes with the territory ("Why are you out here chasing trains when you could be out chasing women?"). Calling the cops on us is an extreme that most of them won't go to, at least if you're not doing something blatantly stupid like standing in the gauge of an active mainline. For stuff like this (calling the cops when you're well away from the tracks on public property), most railroaders view it as pretty low...I wouldn't be surprised if the engineer was shaking his head the entire time while the conductor went about this crap. Just like our hobby though, there are all kinds working for the railroad...
