Reminiscing on the rails are Galway Slim and Hafey. Saprky Smith rests and keeping a hobo tradition, the men gather to honor a deceased hobo, pouring whiskey on the grave.

The days of the hobo are nearly gone, with only a handful of true hobos left. Galway Slim, left, and Hafey reminisce as the sunsets on the rails. Hobo Herb and Hafey have a laugh. Herb, left, Hafey, right.
