If this turns out well, I'll submit it to the moderation staff, that we try to do this once a month about current events...... http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/wireStory?id=1920740 Click the above link and read the story about "Videotaping European subway stations" You don't have to read the entire article, just get the idea behind what is happening as compaired to us as railfans taking pictures. Questions for comments: ~~ Do we as a group of railfans (Weilding cameras and video cams) feel that we have to "tone down" our trackside picture taking? ~~ Since 9/11 have you changed your habits --- i.e. Places that you take pics, times of the day (or night) you take your pics... ~~ Do you use "lesser value equipment" - just in case you do get questioned by law enforcement, because you think that you might have your "good" camera confiscated??? ~~ Are you even more vigilant of your surroundings, when railfanning, now???
