Rats aboard the train?!

Recommended Posts

We've all seen them. Rats/mice...they scurry along the tracks, you even see them on the platform. What I'd like to know is have any of you seen the board the trains themselves?

Rats are wary of the trains because trains = death. I've seen mice in the waiting area of penn station though....... :cool::eek:

I saw one once on a R-40M/42 cosist on the (J) and it got off in Brooklyn and fell into the streets (heard screaming), ;)...

 

That's Hilarious!

Yuck! I've seen them on R32s and R40Ms in the mid 90s. I remember clutching my mom's hand extremely tightly. The C and the J were so filthy back then...

Well when doors open people move in and out, plus there's a gap, plus the rats would have to be on the platform to begin with. As an owner of 2 rats, and a care taker of several more when i was growing up and in the recent past, i can tell you that these sewer rats would not go near the people unless they were sick and out of it, or starving and looking for food.

I have seen mice on trains, twice, on trains I took into Livonia Yard. Where, or how they got on I don't know. There are times when I have seen rats scurrying next to trains, especially at the 138th St ((4),(5)) and 149th St Grand Concourse ((2),(5)) stations.

Me too, but with a twist. One time they had to take a (C) train to Concourse Yard from 145th Street (way back before they made the (;)(C) switch) because a rat found his (or her, I ain't looking between the legs) way into the overhead air conditioning ducts. It was quite weird listening to the rat scurrying above and listening to the rat's nails scraping along.

Well since they are from Brooklyn, they probably carried around knives and stabbed people while going "YO!".;)

I saw that, really sad.

 

Pigeons are common in Center City Stations and Rats are common in the northern most stations on the BSL.

I saw a video on youtube once of a pigeon getting the (A) in the Rockaways and taking in for one stop then getting off lol. It's like it was too lazy to fly it decided to take the train instead.
