Austin Light Rail Prototype Car

I saw two of these cars at the Capital Metro building near the train tracks.  The guy in the orange vest yelled out to me to stop taking pictures. I smiled and waved at him. Click here to see more pictures.

EDIT: I originally misidentified these cars as "light rail." doinky corrected me, saying that "These aren't light rail vehicles; they're diesel multiple units (commuter rail vehicles)." I've edited the title of this post to reflect [info]doinky's correction.

How silly of them

Why on earth would he want you to take no pictures from that distance???

I asked, in England, if I could take a picture of the interior of the engineer's car, and was told no, but that was quite understandable as they'd just had that bombing in London...and that's why I asked first, explaining my reason for wanting one. And said to the guard that I quite understood, when he said no. Didn't try to photograph behind his back, either.

But just a picture like these is not something they can prevent, once the trains are running...it might provide a tiny bit of info to a terrorist but so would any picture of any car, bus, airplane, train.
