Pedestrian train

train car graffiti

Stan enjoyed calling his transient life of riding the rails pedestrian. That a seemingly dirt-poor, nomad had a GRE vocabulary, and a finely honed sense of irony, was irreconcilable for many people he met.

He often tagged trains he frequented with a modern version of hobo hieroglyphics from the turn of the 20th century. Stan’s moveable art guided fellow travelers to safe food, shelter and work. Ofttimes it functioned as a treasure map to cash and clothing he hid inside rail cars.

Most men of his vast financial means are expected to travel extensively, but in luxury not in austerity.
