    Default A word of caution to railfans that work for railroads or railroad contractors

    I work for a railroad contractor and recently attended a safety class.

    If any of the members of this board are in the railroad industry and see an unusual load and take pics of it and post it on social media, like Facebook, beware.

    The instructor told us a person did that and was fired for it; it is considered by the railroad, as, for lack of a better term, a security violation.

    Some HR depts. look at employees social pages and see if they are making sensitive or offensive posts.

    Moderators feel free to move this to a better forum if needed.

    We were never told that. A photo of something out in the public view is hardly a "security concern".

    But someone could use the info to attempt to disrupt that movement.
