Man in sombrero and poncho accused of 'surfing' on top of MBTA commuter train

A Massachusetts man who was drinking during a Saturday afternoon pub crawl in Boston was allegedly found “surfing” on top of an MBTA commuter train while wearing a sombrero and poncho that night. The train's engineer stopped the train between Southborough and Ashland after being told someone was on top of the train while it was traveling 40 mph.

The engineer saw the man on top of a ladder, “like a child clinging over a shopping cart,” according to a MBTA Transit Police report. “The engineer said the man climbed down on his own power and was brought to Southborough MBTA Station where the police removed him.”

The 28-year-old man delayed the Worcester-bound train by 24 minutes.

"The man admitted to drinking a large quantity of alcoholic beverages during a pub crawl in Boston," the MBTA report said. "He said he and his friends had been drinking since 3 p.m. in the afternoon."

It is expected that he will be charged with trespassing.

He’s just an undocumented passenger. Asking him for a ticket would be racist.

Riding on the roof is an accepted method of rail travel in some parts of the world.

OMG they even ride on the sides. I hope the BART trains in Northern California do not become like that.
