Day 150, 27 March 2013, Postscript

I passed this flagman in his lonely outpost this afternoon. He's standing watch just south of Pratt Blvd., a block south of the construction site. I assume that he is there because of the way that the tracks curve, since otherwise trains approaching from the south would not be visible until they were fairly close to the worksite. In all honesty, though, i took this picture because he reminded me of a sailor, perched high aloft in the crow's nest of a sailing ship, looking for land or a great white whale.
