Masked man makes third rail shortcut
OK, here's one you won't see every day....
Quincy stop, 7:12 AM. One side's the Brown Line, the other side serves Orange and Purple.
I'm sitting on one of the benches, trying to stay awake. Out of the corner of my eye, I see motion in a place I don't normally expect to see motion. I look over.
Across the platform, on the Brown Line side, a man clambers down off the platform and ONTO THE TRACKS. As casually as though he were crossing Jackson against traffic, he crosses over to the Orange/Purple side and boosts himself up.
The weirdness is only enhanced by the fact that the man is WEARING A SKI MASK. On the second-to-last day of July.
He strolls back and forth along the platform, apparently holding a monologue under his ski mask, and he boards the next Orange Line train when it pulls in.
Needless to say, I've never been quite so glad that I was waiting for the Purple Line!!
