THREE youths caught red-handed daubing graffiti on the back of a moving train have been branded halfwits by Connex.
The male skylarkers were captured on film standing on the back of a train leaving Seddon station.
Dressed in singlets and shorts, they appeared to be putting graffiti on the back window, which Connex spokesman John Rees said would have put the train out of action until it could be removed.
It was unknown where the youths got on or off the train, but Mr Rees said he hoped they exited at the next stop.
"If they've got half a brain, which the fact that they were on the back of a train suggests they don't, they would get off at the next station," he said. "It really is as dangerous as it looks."
The blatant stupidity comes just months after another skylarker was filmed train-surfing from Burnley to Surrey Hills wearing a Hawthorn Football Club jumper. He was later caught and fined $220.
Mr Rees said Channel 7 footage taken at the station clearly showed the youths' faces and he hoped to catch them using the footage and CCTV.
"We are waiting for the video to be sent to us, then we will pass it on to the asset protection unit and also to the police," he said.
Mr Rees said it was amazing how fast such videos could be put on to the internet, making it easy to identify people.
