I 've seen this portrayed in movies


That is, the undercover cop camouflaged as a bum, but I've never seen it in real life. I do not doubt that police detectives occasionally do this sort of thing on narcotics stake-outs or sex-crime stake outs, or even vice squad stake outs, but unless the raiilroad yard is handling some very expensive cargo, it's hard for me to imagine.


Tex, Stretch and I got accused of being cops one time at Bellaire Junction by an old homeless woman. She pointed her finger at Tex (who has been riding trains for 31 years) and screeched "You ain't no train rider!" I think Tex was offended, LOL. Like his credentials as a bona fide hobo were being challenged by some toothless old crone. We didnm't stay long, it was a pretty hopeless jungle---garbage everywhere, discarded, wet, dirty clothes, trash in every corner.


Not every homeless person is a tramp. There is a difference.
