Right. That's the reason why charter operators strictly control the use of drones. They make noise, which really tees off the video guys. Still guys like me generally don't care, as long as they keep their toys out of the shot. Many of the more sophisticated video guys now use remote, directional microphones, which help suppress the sound of the cameras clicking away during the run-bys. My D4 camera was not popular with video guys. It shoots 10-11 fps and sounds like an automatic weapon with a silencer.

Honestly, I couldn't tell you if there's a concerted effort against them here. I had to go look, but only one of my dark horse leaders was an SC. Starnes grew up on a diet of the Black Horse, but Kilroy is from the Westside. Chase could certainly be partial to NS, as it ran by his house growing up. Maybe they could chime in?

I do not SC Norfolk Southern between the months of January and April. I SC CSXT power year-round, but only if the power AND number boards match. I only SC Union Pacific between May 12 and June 8. The Canadian railroads have a SC pass in recognition of Canada Day-only on July 1. BNSF gets a free pass only if the power is silhouetted or backlit, or otherwise unrecognizable.

As for Amtrak, they're not eligible for the SC if it's the post-F40 era.

It's strict criteria here at RP.......


But seriously, if I look at the photo and am 'wow'd' by its content, it gets a SC. It can be in the middle of a Kansas cornfield, the NEC, an obscure railroad in Hungary, or a combination of all of the above, if it looks good, it's getting homepage love.

I am partial to a clean and classic looking, red, white, and blue Metra 40. It doesn't look (and sound) any better than that.

Hah! Nice.

I guess I stand corrected. While a clean Metra F40 is nice, it's tough to top this, Robert.

Glad you fix yours. The "earth is round" barrel distortion from the drone's widest lens and shooting too high is a bit unappealing.

The effect is best when shooting in areas devoid of elevation change.

If only that dude were a few inches taller. I probably would have piled up some branches or maybe found a rock to stand on.
