A great photo inspires. It creates a feeling. More often than not railroad pictures create a sense of peace, calmness, or fun and adventure. This inspires the trickle down effect. An effect that causes new photographers, students, and shutterbugs to head out to the tracks, rail yards, and trestles (train bridges) to get that amazing shot... but these photos also give the misconception that the tracks are a safe place. So people go for walks, kids play, teenagers party... all while somewhere on those rails there is a 6,000 ton train speeding at over 55 mph.
