A family photoshoot held along train tracks in Greencastle, Pennsylvania almost ended tragically when the members almost got killed by a freight train.
The group, which consisted of five children and their parents, wanted to create a memorable shoot and hired a photographer to capture some shots at the active train tracks.
In a video captured by High Line Train Station, via Virtual Railfan, Inc, the family is seen wandering along the tracks until one of them alerts the others about the incoming locomotive, prompting them to scramble away.
The uploader warns that there is “no better example why you should stay off the tracks.”
The event has become a talking point among photographers and trainspotters alike, who discourage from shooting on train tracks unless proper permission has been obtained.
Message to photographers: Not only are portraits/family photo shoots on train tracks incredibly dangerous they're also cliché and dumb. Don't be these people. https://t.co/zoMvkis1yH— Justin Franz (@jfranz88) February 25, 2020
