The only ones getting harassed by the authorities.

Apparently bus spotters are too.

Train and subway spotters and especially photographers are getting a great deal of harrassment too. A particularly Kakfa-esque situation has arisen on the New York subway; while Transit Authority rules explicitly allow personal-use photography so long as no flash or tripods are used, most transit workers and even cops don't know that.

File not found thestar/Layout/Article_Type1 is all I get when I click on the link. I'd love to see the article though.

Soko, you could try going through the front door.



I think the article was on the Canada page.

FSPilot747,

Yes they do, and we even get the bus spotters at LHR !!!. The plane spotters are around the perimeter watching planes and the bus spotters stand around the central bus station !!!. It's quite amusing really that people travel to the airport to spot busses !!.

People will spot anything. There's no accounting for taste.

I know one group of bus-spotter types who weren't happy with their local bus company, and started their own; "classic" (ancient, unreliable) buses staffed mostly by unpaid volunteers.

Even more so with trains - there's a restored steam railway near where I used to live, running a regular timetable... old diesel and steam trains, maintained & staffed by enthusiast spotter-types.

I'm just grateful that we haven't got many airlines like that  Big grin
