Railfans and Police Don't Mix - YouTube
I finally had the guts to catch one of our 'encounters' on camera. The camera was hanging around my neck, hence the odd angle and shakiness.
I don't think the police realised that the camera was running. In case of arrest, they can tell him to erase it anyway, can't they?
BTW, do you think too that the policeman's 25-foot rule for demarcating RR right-of-way was made up?
One whose delusions are out of fashion.
The bar of unreasonable doubt applied. Standard practise when cops are accused as far as I can tell.

In rural areas of the U.S., the ROW can be pretty wide--400' (about 100 meters) is typical. In urban areas it's narrower, I think they normally want about 50' (15 m) just because that's what is needed for clearance and maintenance. And obviously when the ROW crosses a road, it effectively becomes 0' in width.
But in practice, people go onto the railroad ROW all the time.
