Eshays Australia: Fed up transport worker calls out teen graffitiing on the train

Eshays Australia: Fed up transport worker calls out teen graffitiing on the train

A young eshay scribbling graffiti on a busy train in the middle of the day has been caught in the act by a fed up transport worker.

In mobile phone video, the rail guard is seen telling the long-haired teen in a dark hoodie and shorts: ‘You’re on camera now and this is going straight to the police.’

Visually shaken by the interruption, the teen puts the black marker pen down midway through his tag and hangs his head in shame.

Police are now investigating the act of vandalism which took place April 7 on the way from Gosford to Woy Woy station on the Central Coast of New South Wales.

The 22-year-old transport worker told Daily Mail Australia he’s forced to deal with eshays graffitiing carriages on a regular basis and this time he’d ‘had enough’.

‘They’re brazen. They don’t just do it when the rain is empty, they do it when the train is full,’ the guard who wished to remain anonymous said.

‘I’m just fed up with seeing them doing it all the time. It makes the train look ugly.’

The transport officer added that although the teen seemed remorseful, he doesn’t have much sympathy for him.

‘If you look at the way he was writing the graffiti, it was obvious he wasn’t a new starter. He’s definitely done it many times before. So he’s probably done a lot of damage,’ he said.

‘And after I filmed it, when the train pulled up at Woy Woy, the doors opened and he bolted from the train.

‘I don’t think he’s learnt his lesson either because I still see that tag around the place.’

Each year, graffiti on the state’s rail network costs the taxpayer about $30million a year, with about ’40 football fields’ of marker pen and spray paint needing to be scrubbed off.

Sydney Trains acting chief executive Stewart Mills told 9News: ‘It’s an enormous cost and a burden’.

‘These people are not artists, they are criminals.’

He warns there are more than 24,000 cameras across the rail network and that it’s only a matter of time before vandals get caught.

The penalty for vandalising a train in NSW is up to five years’ in jail or a $2200 fine.

HOW TO SPOT AND ESHAY

Eshays wear Nike TN trainers with polo shirts, puffer jackets, tracksuit pants or baggy shorts and baseball caps.

Favoured labels include Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, and Lacoste, paired with Nautica, Adidas, Under Armour and Ellesse.

Some eshays scramble words and put ‘ay’ on the end in a form of pig Latin. ‘Eetswa’ means ‘sweet’ and ‘chill’ becomes ‘illchay’. 

Hard-core eshays engage in assaults, robberies and threatening behaviour against other youths but many seem to wander the streets aimlessly. 

Does your child wear a bumbag, speak in ‘pig Latin’ and get into strife at the train station… beware,…
