That is an amazing picture and a truly unique catch. Nice work Jon!

I've seen this fellow at Prescott Park. Not sure if he's a real Hobo, but he sure looks the part

May he ride our rails in safety and know the schedule of moves in the Portsmouth Yard!

Thanks. Yes, from what I heard on the scanner it seems he was known to the local police. Haha he probably has better luck than I do seeing trains!
