A person who lives next to the tracks but never rides the train. Usually an artist in suburbia, the fauxbo spends large amounts of time in freight yards tagging trains and flattening pennies. A fauxbo lives in a warehouse, dresses like a conductor and is frequently holding an open container. The first fauxbos came from Trampa Florida and were an art collective that squatted at Rat Soap.
