Default Al Qaeda to Derail Trains

Stumbled across this article this morning while catching up on the daily news. Lets hope this new threat does not affect us photographers who are out for the pure pleasure and enjoyment of photographing and watching trains.

Great. I can't wait to get harassed by some small town cop when I visit the US next to photograph trains. Being a middle aged white dude with a camera trackside makes me an obvious terror suspect.

Lame.

I think I'll move this to the photography thread since it pertains to railroad photography.

I disagree. This may pertain loosely to rail photography, but this is Off-topic. Remember, even after that excuse was pulled on the OBL - Dead thread, it still got moved. As an aside, I doubt you can move it, and even if you could, someone beat you by three minutes to posting it in that forum. It belongs here, in OT, period.

Alright, well it is posted in both areas. I'll let the administrators decide which they prefer and remove the other.

All I know is if I hear some guy yelling ''Allah Akbar'' while I'm trackside, I'm going to get the heck out of Dodge.

I will keep that in mind the next time I run into some railfan who shows up at a spot where I was at first and gets in my way or starts acting like an idiot. Maybe if I whip out my koran and start shouting islamic sounding stuff, they will haul ass.

I closed the link too long ago, but there's been a proposal by some senator to have the no-fly list apply to trains, too.

I agree. People should not fly on trains.

Could somebody please go back in time 45 years and talk to the NYC about how that's a poor idea?

Thanks.
