This was many years ago, I think probably in the 90's. If you recall, there was some kid who really loved subways and "stole" the A train. He operated it so well the passengers didn't even know that the train was taken over by a kid. I just remembered this story all of a sudden and wondered what happened to him and what he's doing now. I tried googling it but didn't get any useful information.

I was in HS when this happened. I remember all of us talking about it and saying instead of putting him in jail, the MTA should've given him a job. lol

What year was that? I think I may have been in HS too. Did they really put him in jail?

Thanks! That's the one. I can't believe it was that long ago. Feels like it was just yesterday.
