Trouble for Trainspotters

Lynn talks to Richard Whitenight about his hobby of watching and taking pictures of trains, and how it got him in trouble. Redoubled security fears have law enforcement officials looking out for suspicious activity, especially around railroads. Whitenight and friends in Texas were questioned for more than four hours for pursuing their hobby. Whitenight says he understands the concern and is not angry.
