mark1447 685 Posted January 19, 2009 Share #1 Posted January 19, 2009 Well, yesterday (Saturday), I went rail fanning, as I do every Saturdays as a special. So I'm at Queens, IRT Main street, taking shots, when I took a shot of the C/R cab. A worker comes behind me, and tells me: "You cant take shots of the cab". People were looking And I said, " Its allowed" . He says: As a matter a fact you cant take any pictures of any part of the train, we dont want people knowing how to use the controls (Im like wtf?) I stay quiet and take out my SPECIAL "MTA RULES OF CONDUCT" he says: Whats this? I says: Its the rules, just in case im stopped by a T/A worker or NYPD. I fire up the page [1050.9] he reads. Like 10 times lol I say to him: I know its cuz of terrorism, but its allowed, im also becomding a conductor as well as i took the test.. He says: Hmm 1050.9 while taking a pen out. He says, its ok go right a head, Thanks tho for showing me , didnt know tho. I say your welcome man i felt good, cuz hes the FIRST T/A worker to not t disrespect me, unlike most T/A / NYPD personals Thats why if you are Rail fanning with pictures! TAKE THE CONDUCT WITH YOU!!! http://www.mta.info/nyct/rules/rules.htm # Photography, filming or video recording in any facility or conveyance is permitted except that ancillary equipment such as lights, reflectors or tripods may not be used.
