Re: Respect the T/O's request not to film him

Posted by BMTLines on Tue Dec 11 10:00:25 2007, in response to Re: Respect the T/O's request not to film him, posted by RonInBayside on Tue Dec 11 01:38:33 2007.

What appears to have set off the train operator was the very fact that he was photographing. Its not like he was filming through one of the new cabs and distracting her. If she simply closed her cab door and operated the train like she should be doing there would have been no problem. It does appear that she has an issue with photography and that needs to be addressed.

Waiting for the another day may or may not be an option. What if you took a day off to photograph the system and were told you could not do it? You may have to take another day off this time with no pay if you have plans for the rest of your vacation time. That just cost you a days pay!!!

Waiting for the next train - perhaps - and depends on the line. What if there is only one Railfan Window trainset operating? The next suitable train may be 2 hours away....

There are too many anecdotal incidents of railfans being told by employees and cops that they cannot photograph in the system. I am sure that while MTA officials may not be directing them to say those things, they are nevertheless by their lack of action tacitly approving them.
