Is Miss Flying Yankee 1936 "blue flagged" to be standing there?  —  If nothing else, pictures like this set a bad moral example.

 

Sorry.

 

I removed the offending photograph (s).

 

Cheers, Ed

Having this person pose for this photo is what I considered a "bad moral example."  I didn't mean to be critical of the picture appearing here as in there being federal laws about the mere possession of pictures of young women standing in front of a train.

I was asked to pose for a photo standing on the WSOR tracks, and I flat out refused, and I think it would be a good practice to not pose for such pictures and not take such pictures -- I think we had another thread on the hazards of this practice.  

But that you took the picture down, I thank you for that.  Anything we can do in the rail enthusiast community to promote train safety is a great thing.

If GM "killed the electric car", what am I doing standing next to an EV-1, a half a block from the WSOR tracks?
