took the photos above, please notify the proper authorities.
 Of course, if you go to Flickr and search for photos of

    They’ve been falling all over themselves in the UK over this. Police make threats & (false) arrests. Police get reprimanded (sort of). Home office makes new fuzzy rules. The terrorists have won indeed.

    Man is [wrongly] told it is illegal to photograph trains.

    Fixed for you.
