I know it's wrong, but I'm sure he could feel the train coming, and could see the gates going down in the background. It's still trespassing regardless if you are deaf or not.

Nice shots from everyone! Glad to see this thread receiving some attention.

You may be making some untrue assumptions here. I doubt that he travels alone much, if at all.

Here is my Rare Catch..... Just Google it up and see how many other pics you can find............

Despite 28 years of flying airplanes, my hearing is still pretty good....but I always look both ways before crossing RR tracks. I'm guessing that David is even more careful about that.

A few come to mind:

Most recently my rejected Northern Pacific steam engine photos - other then NP #328, there is currently only one single NP steam engine in the database. And none that can be found searching "Northern Pacific". RP didn't like the fence in front of the displays. There's always Steamlocomotive.com.

Back to rare catches:

Perhaps rarest of the rarest -

Does this one count? An abandoned SP coach. I wish I'd had more time to tend to the composition of the shot, but I do like the addition of the sun rays that were captured. Also, if someone could enlighten me as to what exactly this car's purpose may have been, that'd be interesting.

I did the best I could with a cloudy day, and blown out skies, and just over all dark without the processing being worse than it is. Just read the description. And yes, I know it says "Norfolk Southern". I emailed the RP crew about fixing that, since you can't fix it with the photo management.

Nice little loco, it appears about as often as this

Only available on Maria Himmelfahrt (national holiday in Austria) and the lines "gala" weekend a month or so later.

I have quite a few pictures that could be termed unusual or "rare", I do like searching for the more oddball or quirky stuff off the beaten track; and UK tour operators tend to specialise in getting certain types of locos to places they would never have gone to in normal service.

I'll bet these two GM-engined locos would have rarely (if ever) met up if it was not for the special train which brought them together.

Almost certainly the first (and probably last) member of it's class to traverse the line to Serpins.

The only way somebody would have seen one of these in Scotland thirty years ago would be by partaking of too many "wee drams"!

Dennis - FYI, 4 of the CDOT P32ACs in New Haven paint exist - 228, 229, 230 & 231

Anyways, mine would be getting a train and a Los Angeles class sub in the same frame. Rare in that the Navy usually requests an opening of the drawbridge so there's no trains around...

Kevin,

Yeah, I always could more be careful about by myself and be positive!

I thought this to be rare. UP 2002 heading west on the BNSF Chillicothe Subdivision on point.

Yet another rare one. A passenger train on the I&M. I think the C&IM ran one in the early 70's on this line and before that it had been back in the 50's.

Oh and to top it off it's being pulled by a pair of SD18's
