Today is my first trip out to see steam i have been looking forward to this since christmas. I have wanted to see black 5 at Copy Pit armed with my new camara & a sunny day i thought it was going to be perfect. I set up for the perfect shot great spot itwas all going well until i i got back home & looked at it.
The photo is below & look what has happened that inconsiderate idiot has spoilt not only my photo but everyone elses too because of his ignoarance towards others. I am close to a 1000 degrees im that angry. I dont usually get like this but something i have built up to all month & looked forward to so much spoilt. That idiot could have gone to the second coach to get his footage rather than spoil everyones photo. Copy pit was absolutly packed with steam fans waiting to make full use of the great sunny weather & i bet im not the only one who is going to be spitting fire.

Notwithstanding the fact that if he carries on like that he's going to get very well acquainted with a bridge abutment sooner or later, maybe he was just as annoyed at all the lineside photographers getting in the way of the scenery ? It works both ways.
QUOTE Indeed - in any case how soon before the H & S police look at this whole aspect - will we then have grilles fitted to the insides of rolling sock ?

It's been considered before - ICSTU considered fitting the maroon BN91 set with bars after that bloke got decapitated on the N Wales Coast in the early 90s (?), I can't remember whether they were actually fitted or not though. It only needs a stroke of the pen for someone at Network Rail to make it mandatory.
