I love trains and I love photographing them in our area. Walking on the tracks is the stupidest thing I have seen people do, especially with headphones. Unfortunately I see it all the time. A few months ago I saw a near miss with Amtrak and a girl with headphones. Missed by mere inches. They will sneak up on you even without headphones on if your back is to them.Please people STAY OFF THE TRACKS you'll make your friends happy your parents happy the train crews happy. Don't do it. Sorry for every ones loss.
