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.

QUOTE (Brian Considine @ 31 Jan 2009, 14:45) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>I have to admit that he's far more obtrusive than the "head-sticker-outers", but there is another way of looking at this (& it has been pointed out before by the organisers of steam runs) - the people on the train have paid for the train to run, whereas those at the trackside generally have not.

I can see the disappointment though from those waiting to get the perfect shot - maybe an even better one would have been of the video equipment halfway to the ballast after the cameraman lost his grip.

Still, with technology it's easy to get rid of unwanted bits.
Shortly followed by the cameraman!
OOOH, Get me!
From seeing the behaviour of some of the "Yoof" on Deal station that would be a good idea!
