The View From Above
Many railfans are beginning to supplement their trackside photos with aerial views shot from drones. "Neilybobmojo" has been one of my favorites for quite some time. He's located in the Northwest US and has lots of video of UP.

You'll really get the feeling of the trains length when seen from this angle.
See you at the next meeting, gs
