But if you know this, you can obviously crop in advance and hope that the screeners are happy..



I agree with you on the cropping issue. To me there is a lot times where there is more to view and in the view that just the train. I personally look at everything in all the pics on RP and not just the focal point. I have taken numerous shots wider than planned just because there was more to the surroundings that appealed to me. Unfortunately RP's preferences is what it is and I just chalk those pics up to "RP's lose" and move on.
