Brian, what on earth is TRAINS trying to do now?  Get us all sued?  Where at the TRAINS website are the “release forms” we can use?

In pondering the theme for Trackside #304 a neat photo that could be taken rather quickly was visualized.  But, then, it dawned on this one, “What exactly are passengers?”  Passengers to me are people already onboard a train, and not those walking to or from a train.  So, the photo possibility was abandoned.

It would be nice, therefore, if at the outset of a Trackside more information could be given, examples presented of what the Trains staff had in mind, and clearly stated so that there are no misinterpretations or energy wasted, especially since photo contributors much more than likely will end up in the red anyway.
