I’ve seen the trains parked on these tracks for months now. I finally got out there today for photos (I love long weekends).
The trains intrigue me, and I began to do a little googling and came up with some interesting stories on freighthopping, or hitching rides on freight trains.
Our good friend Wiki tells the story of times past and the hobo of yesteryear.
It wasn’t an easy life, by any means, but it was freedom.
I found this great (what I think is fascinating) YouTube on the subject. I hope you find it fun to watch; it’s eight minutes, but sit back and enjoy the ride.
