I'm with you Kevin. While an occasional nose-on shot adds variety, I don't get the guys who live on a steady diet of that perspective, because they generally all look alike. Worse yet is the photo with a caption that references a spectacular five paint scheme lash-up when only the lead unit's nose is visible.

I learned long ago that to avoid getting closer to the tracks when I arrive at a location. Instead I look for chances to get farther away.
