Health and saftey gone mad if you're actually on tracks in UK.

Nice to see a bunch of normal railfans, all we have are freaks and geeks over here.

Hah, is there really such a thing as a normal railfan? Thanks for sharing, Alan.

Just to answer some of the questions: Vest, these are required on all Network Rail lines for anyone on or about active tracks, most of the heritage lines have the same requirements. it does let the train crew see where people are, so overall it's a good idea. Mitch, Foamers? nearest UK term is probably Gricer or it your a picture maker Photter, the general public would usually call them trainspotters. What are they waiting for? a couple of steamers to run by, a std 5 73129 and a 9F 92212. See: for the photo. Alan

It's allowed because they all hold PTS that allows them to be there. It's common on the GCR although that an uncommon amount of people.
