If you let them know it bothered you, you are giving them what they wanted.

I recall the issue in Niles with Amtrak a few years ago. The cars I spotted in Google Maps look to be different than the ballast cars Amtrak uses. These cars are on a spur that is basically next to the Amtrak yard, but the loading area is next to Paragon Tempered Glass, although this doesn't appear to be the customer loading the cars. It almost looks like it is dirt of some sort. Were they loading dirty dirt from Niles recently? It's basically at the corner of Terminal Rd and Renaissance Dr.

A little. :lol:
I was more worried about the spread of false information.

Because that false railfain information would affect the lives of people how?

The hopper cars in question in Niles were empty old woodchip gons being loaded with shredded tires. I don’t know if they still load there or not.
I save lives. What do you do?

Because nothing makes a foamer/railfan happier than roomers (or in this case a joke turned into a roomer)
