San Marco Train: Tweeting To Make America Late Again?

Recently a lively voice popped up on Jacksonville’s Twitter scene that takes potshots at politicians, sports figures, media folks, and yes,  the infamous San Marco train crossing.

And while we don’t usually report on individual twitter accounts, @SanMarcoTrain has issued a challenge to our own Melissa Ross that we couldn't resist sharing.

For every retweet this slow train gets, its engineer has pledged to donate $5 to WJCT up to $500, with some stipulations that we'll leave to @SanMarcoTrain and  @MelissainJax to argue over.

Is there news value here? No. But our end-of-year pledge drive starts Wednesday so we figured why not play along.

With that in mind, here are a few selected tweets from the tracks by the @SanMarcoTrain and @MelissainJax.

Bill Bortzfield can be reached at, 904-358-6349 or on Twitter at @BortzInJax.

Bill joined WJCT News in September of 2017 from The Florida Times-Union, where he served in a variety of multimedia journalism positions.
