The Rock Island Line

These photos show Paul McCartney putting American pennies on railroad tracks in the Hamptons for them to get squashed by a train.   He was said to come back and pick them up later and use them as guitar pics.     

Is this something kids in the U.K. didn't do growing up?


  1. Not that I was aware of but I didn't live near train tracks either. I know the English penny wouldn't work as it was much larger than the U.S. version. A sixpence might have worked but I, again, I never heard of anyone doing it.
