Lets apply the reasonable person test to your scenario.

Would a reasonable person believe they are entering a restricted area? By the way you described, I believe any officer would be very hard pressed to arrest anyone for trespassing just for taking pictures from the road.

Now were a problem could occur is if you wonder off maybe next to the mill in a place obviously that is not on a public road, (or what you thought was a public road) next to the locos, or any other area that you obviously have no business being. Unless you have permission to be were you are at, or have business at the plant, then it can be considered trespassing.

I do believe most state laws require someone to be warned first to not be on the property before an arrest can be made.
