This was published a few months before the incident reported above, so I don't think it was this filmmaker... Check out his other films, they are amazing.

I'm staggered that they were even stupid enough to stay and have their photo taken, the old guy looks as though he's posing for it too, unbelievable  :o :thumbsdown:

Who took their photo?  Another trespasser?

It was credited to British Transport Police, so I guess, British Transport Police?

As reported by the camera man ( a railway modeller) on another railway modelling site, he was the driver of the train in shot and should have been going past at 100mph+ He took the Photo as a report as to why he had stopped..
