I think everyone realizes it takes hard working people to run the trains and those people want/deserve time off. Maybe it's time to give the high horse a break for a bit...
With no offense intended, I don't. Most railfans I have met have no idea the hard work it takes.

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

They, the Railroads are saving OT and no one there to unload the cars, Not a big deal they haven't run much for years on the holidays.
