I’m not sure why this caught my attention this morning, but it did.
As my train just approached, I looked up at the front of the train as it went past me. The train operator and I almost made eye contact. Then I saw the frame around his windshield.
Someone had tagged (graffiti) the window frame with blue Sharpie marker. It was just around the left side of the window, probably within sight from inside the operators cab. That’s a bold move!
Imagine if someone walked up to your car at a red light and tagged their name on your hood. That’s what someone must have done to this train.
The only way someone could have done it is if the train was at platform level. If it was parked in the rail yard, there’s no way someone could have reached that high.
That means someone walked right up to the train operator, in full view, and tagged the train with blue marker.
Wow. I thought that only happened back in the 1970’s and 1980’s.
Live from the subway, back to you in studio…
Ok, there seems to be some confusion about where the trains was tagged. Here’s a little illustration I whipped up to demonstrate.
