Train hopping in America
A good article about the hobo subculture in America today
. The old hobos from the Great Depression are gone, but there is a new generation of outsiders, ranging from anarchist punks and ferals to migrant workers to train-obsessed dot-com yuppies (and the odd neo-Nazi psycho killer, or so the authorities say);
all brought together by disenchantment with mainstream American life and/or a desire for something else.

(I wonder if they have a similar subculture in Australia. There aren't as many train lines these days, so maybe not. Perhaps the local equivalent is the
Cave Clan or something?)
