So yes i would would feel important. Train service people are the railroads eyes on the rail, thats why they ask us to be on the look out.
you have got to be kidding me
this is wrong on so many levels
for starters, why dont you think for yourself
the president is trying to scare you so he can legitimize his agenda of fear to keep control of the populous
his ratings are heading down and he is really losing control
there is no reason to fear a couple railfans
when was the last time someone terrorized a train in a yard?
seriously, you must be either a greenhorn or completely detatched from reality...
people shouldnt be tresspassing, but you are making a fool of yourself if you think you are helping anyone by reporting railfans as terrorists
vigilance is a great term to spread fear of the unknown
vigilance + stupidity = the cops are too busy being playing terror-cop to do their real jobs (IE: fighting real crime)
