	I see this in front of the RR museum in Elkhart, IN all the time. 
There's no talking to these people and they will continue doing it 
until they get hurt, killed or arrested.  I relate them to having the 
same mentality as someone who will drive around a crossing gate, 
something I also see all the time as well. They have no compunction 
when it comes to trespassing either. We've had to resort to locking 
our gate as a result, something that we have avoided until now an 
unfortunate event to say the least. It has been, and will always be 
the few who will ruin things for the many.

What killed the railfaning in my town, Porter/Chesterton IN a few 
years back a Division Superintendent saw " a railfan standing on 
track 2 while videotaping a freight on track 1, while a Van train was 
coming up behind the railfan." The railfan did not even know that 
the van was there let alone it was traveling at 60 MPH. I do not see 
why people have to be right next to the tracks and taking pictures or 
video taping. That is why there are such items as telephoto lenses 
and zoom in camcorders.
