Letter: Railroad graffiti prank goes too far

We have great high school kids in Hudson, and I understand kids doing pranks.

I also love traditions.

However this graffiti is on private property and is on a busy and dangerous train overpass.

It may be time for Hudson High School students to start a new tradition.

Last year there was an idea to put attractive Hudson murals on the railroad overpass.

I also wonder if some barriers could be installed to keep children from access to this dangerous overpass.

It would be a tragedy if a teenager got injured on those tracks.
