I mean if I’m going to be completely honest, If I was a crew member, I wouldn’t be too thrilled seeing people chase the train for 8-12 hours straight, every crossing, etc. I mean I think “no photos/videos” is extreme, but if someone is doing that for 12+ hours, I can see how the wrong crew could get a little grumpy. Anyway, I think we’ve been pretty lucky with friendly crews for the past few years though!
Although, I must say chasing is a fun and a unique experience, but I doubt a lot of grumpy crews view it that way. And like tanker said, you mess up once, it’s likely going to be on the internet!
It doesn't matter which side of the tracks you're from, the train still rolls the same
