"And you'd think railfans might know better, as someone mentioned, but I will tell you, there are a lot of "railfans" out there who don't even come close to knowing the first thing about safety, and they view the hobby as their playground, not another entity trying to conduct business."

Knowing better isn't confined to railfans. I've seen enough railroad employees who exhibit the exact same behavior. The reason they keep coming up with new rules on the railroad is because someone, somewhere does something ignorant and winds up losing a limb or a life or destroying some property. I've worked with pleanty who seriously have no business working around thousands of tons of rolling metal that doesn't stop on a dime. Fortunately, all I've seen is the property destruction part. Common sense goes a long way out here on either side of the lense.

And as Mr. Herndon said, if they were wearing signs, MAYBE someone could stop them.

Just my 2 cents.
