Mostly I do not go to PF to take images (atleast now I don't)
Yes once it happened, one LP came and said not to take pics, but since I arrived late, starter was already given to the train, so he quickly went after saying this.
Few loco pilots gaze at me very curiously :p
And once a loco pilot approached and asked ''सिर्फ
फोटो ही लिए हैं या विडिओ भी बनाए हैं , हा हा " and then he simply went

BTW .. see this click here

Seems like taking images is fine according to the document. But still, I was once accosted by an LP of Manwar Sangam Express out of all trains for taking images. In either cases, I don't think you have ever had RPF question you for near an hour because you were photographing late at evening in the yards :p.

The LP bothering thing made me remembered when I stupidly went into the yard at late evening. Got some good images but really had an issue with RPF personnel. The original half decade old post is here

yes I mostly go in morning and evening time only
Mau, not having a very big yard, I can rarely spot any RPF there, even at PFs they are not so many
Mau also handles freight on daily basis (yes, almost daily a new rake gets placed, so I can always spot various freight locos :) ), beside line number 8 (goods handeling area) there are always trucks + men in huge number, so no-one (neither RPFs nor pax) could get from Platform that someone is taking pics.

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake. These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
