Totally unfair, Loyd. You obviously have not seen my photos from Hooters in Roanoke. Not sure what was more fun that weekend..

Walter keeps pretty close tabs on his girlfriend and doesn't let her wander too far.

I see stuff like that all the time. Idiots.

I personally have had a problem with those trying to tell us to turn railroad photography into an "art form." It's fine for them to do so, I welcome it in fact, but what I do have a problem with is that the practitioners of the more "arty" shots, I have found, tend to look down their nose's at others who are shooting more "mundane" shots.
Railroad photography is what you make of it, but one way is not "better" than another, IMHO. Unless you have a pole right thought the nose of the engine! -SG

I've met Chase. My prediction, RP will not lose a thing, Chase will have plenty of time and will be posting shots by the hundreds.

Unless someone feels sorry for him...

Ha ha ha ha...I actually enjoy the commentary from xtremepadrefan even though it seems like he's trying to channel Reed Timmer from Stormchasers...too bad trains aren't nearly as enthralling as a severe storm chase.

Maybe we should get that guy Ted Williams with the golden voice to railfan some trains and see what it sounds like.

I think Loyd summed it up. No desire to visit Candyland here.

You're correct, Ben. Candyland is quite the metropolian, consuming a large portion of Pennsylvania and neighboring states.

You can't fix stupid, but it is dumbasses like this that help thin the herd.

Fullerton is one of the heaviest action railfan spots, I would guess in the country. There is a snack bar. There are plenty of places to sit. There is a bridge to shoot from. There are restrooms. There are restaurants (two in old train stations). There is free parking.

I actually don't know most of those guys, but the guys I do know who hang with them are good people.

And while I would never personally shout at a train or get overly excited about a GP60M meeting a stacker, I still have to say, let he who is without nerdiness cast the first chunk of ballast.

As an aside, that is not the only group of railfans that hang out there even. On Friday evenings, I believe you can find multiple groups... and if you are discerning, choose the group that matches your own level of social awkwardness.

Personally, I'm probably too socially awkward for any of them to accept me.

I have to admitt that thinking about the first time I saw a UP SD70MAC with flags and flares, I had to have looked like a moron. I couldn't sleep, so I went for a late night/early morning drive and just happened to spot it, so I got up ahead of it and got out of the car to watch it speed by and think I may have given it an ovation.

Yeah, I know, stupid. Thank God no cell phones back then had video cameras. Of course, it was 3 or 4 a.m. at the time, too.

Was it Steven Wright who joked that he had an imaginary friend who wouldn't have anything to do with him? That's how I feel sometimes. Plus, shooting alone means I don't have to speed back to the house or hotel and load my shots onto RP before the other guys. Not that Ive ever done that.

Actually, that's my line (seriously... I've used it for more than a decade.)

Steven Wright's line was "I'm somebody else's imaginary friend."

That first video is so dorky and true it's hilarious. I love trains just as much as the next guy, but he pretty much verbalizes what the allure is like.
