I just finished reading this post and laughed my ass off. But I agree you need to back your waves up with pictures. Always have your camer/phone at the ready.

I was too busy calling everyone I know to tell them the news. I couldn't be bothered with such silly things as taking pictures... did you guys not read what I wrote? TWO PEOPLE WAVED AT ME!

Oh...and had a guy with a ZR1 waved at me yesterday...just to kind of keep things on topic.
Well, I do have an "Ask a Railroad Conductor" thread in the Off-Topic section if you guys have any questions. (I do the N-Scale thing, too... I don't have anything set up, but I have a large 45 gallon bin filled with locomotives, rolling stock, track and buildings for when I can find the time to get started... I'm doing it mostly to get my nephews interested in trains, and maybe my incoming mini-me, too)

I get a lot of one-finger waves...

But in all seriousness, I love waving back to the little kids that stand there wide eyed, mouths hanging open... I always make my hogger give them a little horn toot to help make their day... I remember one trip, I was re-crewing a train about 300 yards from a crossing; sitting up at the crossing, just off to the side of the road, was a man and his special needs son standing outside of their vehicle to watch the train pass by... I couldn't help it, I stepped out the rear cab door (behind the engineer's seat) and gave him a big wave as we passed by. I wish I would've had an extra safety vest or something to throw him, but he was super pumped... that kinda stuff can make your whole trip a good one.

I thought this thread was about getting waves in our Camaros, not bragging about choo choo trains....


Sorry, I'm just pissy I've been driving my Camaro all weekend and haven't got a single wave... I deserve to be waved at too! My Camaro is sweet!

Corvette owners wave at each other no matter what. Everyone just does it, it's like motorcycle riders.

I've tried it with the camaro and come up empty every time, they just look at me like I got a d**k growing out of my forehead, so I assumed it just wasn't done. Good to know this is a contentious issue
