Trackside Talks: What's the deal with train track photography?

I have always wondered why others are attracted to taking photos of or self photography on railroad tracks, whether it's an abandoned line or one that sees over seventy trains a day. Is it the appeal to aesthetics and timeless scenes or one to danger and risk taking?

As an avid railroad photographer, I personally love finding "perfect" areas for trackside photography. All sorts of objects, buildings, and animals litter areas that make for great photoshoots. Such as a deer crossing the tracks in the early morning fall or a lonesome flower growing up in the center of a well maintained mainline railroad track that's used daily, it all comes down to, in my opinion, what makes the tracks pop out the best while also flattering your surroundings.
