Some travelers to Amtrak's wing of Union Station in Washington, DC, have been prevented from taking photos of the station from the inside. A Fox TV news crew recently went down to the station to interview a top Amtrak spokesman. In this video, as the spokesman tries to explain that photography is allowed, a guard comes up and tries to stop them from filming, saying it's not allowed.
