Sweet. You should submit those. "The roof" is a killer location.

I've finally come to the conclusion that anyone that regularly visits and posts to this forum (myself included) has to have some screws loose.

I think he's concerned about your noggin' getting crushed like a pumpkin on All Saints' Day.

If I'm reading you right, I like your style. Dry and sarcastic. By the way, do you have a listing that explains in detail the reasons for your post edits? The last one was reason 227.

The part where you appear to be trespassing to get a photo. The consequences could range from a simple citation for trespassing to death by train.

Putting aside all sorts of questions here, like what is Tom trying to achieve and/or communicate by putting these shots here, and let's not forget about the first pair! But there are a number of rail reflection shots on the database, so RP is ok with that. There are lots of "trespassing" shots which do not involve trespassing because an employee shot them.

Here is one that was a PCA, some years ago.

I'll just touch on this, yes, employee shots like Jeff's appear here. Take note however, that with Jeff's shot, the photographer knows where the train is.....

Are you purposely playing naive?

Also, what is the purpose of posting your pics here? What is it you're expecting in return?
