Remarks & Notes 
It's sunset, and the Darwin Award candidates make their appearance again. This is one of the new Class 10M Metro trains, but despite the diminished clingon possibilities these guys still manage to cling to the train like geckos, especially between coaches, in the (forced) open doors and even here on the front end. I've watched officials on Kaalfontein station do all they can to prevent this head end riding practice, but to no avail since they jump on from the side opposite the platform the moment the train starts moving. (Also see picture numbers 201572 and 302029.)
