“I had received a call from someone who thought somebody had launched a rock that hit the window of a crew cab. At the time, the caller didn’t realize it was bullets breaking the windows.”
As Union Pacific Special Agent Kevin Wells strides through the dusty San Antonio heat, he peers through shadows cast by two empty box cars. “They’re usually tucked down where you can’t see them, but if you look closely at most containers, there are little cut outs,” Wells said about his process for spotting trespassers hiding in trains. “You can usually see their feet or their bags… just something that doesn’t belong there. They sometimes have w...

Nathaniel Smith took his senior photos with Taco Bell tacos while lying on railroad tracks. The photos caught the attention of the producers of ABC's Good Morning America.

Railroad tracks may seem like a cool backdrop for a photo, but imagine a massive locomotive coming at you, with momentum so great it’s unable to stop. You’re certain you’ll be able to hear it and get off the tracks in time — but chances are you won’t. Why take that chance?

Tracks are for trains. Not your senior photos. Find out more at UP.com/photosafety
