I shall! I shall!

Honestly just got a bit of a laugh from it - thought I would share. 99.99% sure it was just a mistake (even if the second sentence is problematic).

Considering all the stupids comments they let in...

I personally have had a problem with those trying to tell us to turn railroad photography into an "art form." It's fine for them to do so, I welcome it in fact, but what I do have a problem with is that the practitioners of the more "arty" shots, I have found, tend to look down their nose's at others who are shooting more "mundane" shots.
Railroad photography is what you make of it, but one way is not "better" than another, IMHO. Unless you have a pole right thought the nose of the engine! -SG

I'm sure what a "sentace" is.

I like how your comment on a comment missing a subject and verb is also missing a subject and a verb.

It took a lot of thought to stricture an interesting, as well as hamorous reply to something so simplastic and mundane.

I am glad that you recognize, and appriciate my efforets.

Maybe post it in some other language so they can legitimately reject it? Must be a slow news day

I notice they reject comments with 2 many sentences and 2 much punctuation.

I suspect this is an automated function, however someone posted the "shit" word on one of my photos in a comment, so who knows.

I've got at least a dozen comments that are direct questions to me like, "Is that spot easy to get to?"

Funny thing is, I "got" (and appreciated) Billy Bob's intentional mistake, but you didn't. What the heck, man?

Um - no I did - evident by my response praising him.

Funny that, huh?

Dude is too close if an engineer could hit him with a water bottle.

Doesn't matter if you are at a grade crossing, standing too close while the crossing is occupied by a train is illegal.

funny, some engineers stick their head out and wave, others flip you the finger.

Not numerous, but glaring! Close, but no cigar. The word you were struggling for is supposed. Surprised Jim didn't beat me to it!
BTW, in these parts it is not unheard of for an engineer (or conductor) to toss a bottle of cold water to a railfan. Only thing is they generally do it in the middle of summer when the temperature is 100 degrees in the shade!

Looking at the photo, I agree... he was way too close to the tracks (and standing way inside the closed gates there). Now, I know that spot well and there is a wide area on the south side of the crossing, but even still - how close to the train do you need to get?

I was thinking he could have used a telephoto for the shot, but getting hit by the bottle is dispositive of where he was.

It is not like someone in the cab can wind up and huck a bottle a significant distance like they could if they were outside on the landings.

Were I to be malicious from the cab, I would have opened it and sprayed the guy with water.
