Let me say this....... the video does not give away ALL the secrets on how the BOYZ operated, and im not about to either! Watching this brings back memories for shure.I watched the 3 You-tube segments of the "Boyz"........while I understand the need to be in top shape to be able jump moving trains, I don't understand how ANYONE can get on trains moving 25-30 MPH. It just can't happen........A healthy Bo Jackson or a young Rickey Henderson couldn't even do that.
I'm no railroader and never have been..........I'm certainly not privy to any of it but I can't help but think---did the "Boyz" get some inside help? A "quid-pro-quo" type of thing?**
