I feel your pain. I had a lot of shots with the train not quite perfectly placed (in my eye) when I used to shoot with a 5D. The 60D is faster, but I still wish I had a camera in the 7-10 fps range. That would alleviate me from experiencing the nagging "if only the train were perfectly placed" emotion.

I agree 100%. But that's what being OCD about some things in life does to you. You know that leveling obsession I have? Well, it also applies to train placement on bridges.
Rhymes with slice, rice and mice, and probably should be spelled like "Tice."
