True, but sometimes they do work:

I think if you're going to go for that angle, you need to get a little different angle on the curve to include more of the train back of it. I WOULD have gotten a shot earlier with the train in the background on the right as you suggest, but there is an ugly utility tower on the inside of the curve that I was able to hide behind the train by getting low enough.
