Vandals Trespass to Tag Disabled Caltrains in South San Francisco

South San Francisco, CA July 1, 2022

 

Vandals have left their mark on disabled trains located in South San Francisco, with graffiti ‘art’ which calls into question the security of this area that is nestled between San Bruno Mountains and the San Francisco Bay.

 

The trains, pictured below, appear to be the same ones that were involved in the March 10th crash that happened in San Bruno in the mid-morning. At that time, according to the NTSB (National Transportation Safety Board), the southbound Caltrain train 506 struck three stationary on-track (or hi-rail) maintenance vehicles at milepost (MP) 11.6 on main track 2 near San Bruno. The commuter train is send to have been carrying 75 passengers, of which 12 passengers were injured with additional injuries to one train crew member, and one maintenance contractor.

Years ago there were trains staged insecurely in the area that were clearly marked ‘hazardous’ causing security concerns back then as well.

 

 

Caltrains continues to warn of trespassing on the tracks and the potential for accidents. This is something those who breach this area are indifferent towards, the risk perhaps part of the appeal. However, the on-going storing of these disabled trains on our local tracks may be considered a nuisance due to the fact they are attracting vandals to the area.

 

 

The City of South San Francisco, along with partnering agencies, recently had a ribbon cutting for the new station.

Great publicity for the SFCREWHOCARE crew. Don’t forget to credit the artist by linking to their instagram and tic tok. Alternatively, don’t post pictures of graffiti you’re criticizing
