    well im sitting here watching the news, and it's nothing but sniper this and sniper that, and they finally caught him and then BAM!

    just what i hoped wouldnt happen, has.

    the fucks in charge of national security alerts have decided, after receiving some kind of al queda transmissions, that theres a brand spankin new terrorist target.

    thats right, you got it: railroads.
    i figured theyd just say commuters, but also specifically mentioned freights as they panned over a shot of one of our local yards.

    great.

    FBI: Al Qaeda operatives may target U.S. railroads
    State of alert remains at "yellow," or "elevated"
    Friday, October 25, 2002 Posted: 9:05 AM EDT (1305 GMT)


    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The FBI is warning state and local law enforcement officials that al Qaeda terrorists may be planning to target railroads in the United States, including passenger trains and trains carrying hazardous materials.

    According to an FBI statement, the warning was prompted by information obtained from al Qaeda detainees in mid-October, as well as recently captured al Qaeda photographs of railroad engines, cars and crossings.

    The information indicates that the group has considered targeting U.S. passenger trains, possibly using operatives with a Western appearance, the FBI said.

    But no specific targets were mentioned, and the overall state of alert remains at the "yellow," or "elevated" level.

    The FBI said additional "protective measures" have been implemented along railroads, "including increased presence of law enforcement officers, increased surveillance of critical areas and improved physical protections."

    Amtrak has increased patrols of its facilities and trains, and freight railroads have also stepped up security, the FBI said.

    The FBI said the information suggests that terrorists could try a number of "attack strategies, such as destroying key rail bridges and sections of track to cause derailments or targeting hazardous material containers."

    On Tuesday, security chiefs from U.S. railroads received a briefing from the Department of Transportation, and the Environmental Protection Agency contracted organizations representing chemical and petroleum companies, the FBI said.

    yeah...i heard this in the car yesterday and then saw it on the news last night...the more the media talks about it, the more the public is going to be scared, and cautious about threats to the rails....it really sucks because im dying to paint freights and now im a little nervous about it. not that my city, in my state would be much of a target, but you never know (you folks in the big citys need to be fucking careful though)...all it takes is for somebody to see you coming or going from the yard at a time like this to make them suspicious enough to call the cops....even if the threats are directed at amtrack, that still means security in the yards will be tighter...good luck everyone.

    a bomb strategicaly placed on a tank unit train loaded with concintrated bleach or chlorene or some other dangerous chemical would kill vast numbers of people. and before you cops watching this board think im a terrorist, a ns cop told me that while he was kicking me off railroad property. it was his idea-go knocking on his door.

    trains

    when 9/11 went down about 1-2 weeks after the yards in my area were on lock. cops sitting outside all the major yards and layups was the norm. we just benched till like november then crept back in and started hitting shit again. we have spots that no one paints let alone knows about and were chill when the other yards were some what hot. it seems its mostly directed at passenger trains but i would be careful around freight trains too. i mean really it hasnt been the same since 9/11 happenend. for the past month i have been getting run out of spots, chased, and almost arrested. so shit was already heated around here or i just had bad luck. im gonna be careful and stay away from major freight centers especially ones that have passenger cars.
