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.

I went to school with him, he later started his own trucking company. But he passed away due to heart failure in 2013.

I thought this was about Darius McCollum at first, Who was in the news this week for another transit related offense similar to Keron's.

There are people who have an obsession with transportation service like trains. it's a powerful feeling i imagine conducting such a large piece of machinery. i guess its overwhelming for some with certain mental health factors in play.
