    Man I get my chops busted on these fuckers........streaks,peices even a half car have been spotted or have come back buffed/stamped.I have no real beef with it it's a chance any car could catch the buff but those things get it the worst.



    This year was the worst I caught a half car of mine buffed BUT THE TAG.It was more the irony of painting my 100th peice over the pre-stamped car.


    fuckers


    Bitch away

    king of canada lol... gaynadian national

    been gettin cn's since 94... they are a strange lot at best...i've seen this year, a peace roll back through from 96 and several others from like years. However, the new paint cn's seem to be becoming more and more prvailent. ive heard stories about the border crossing being an issue, but that seems to be incorrect. What i, in my humble opinion, take from it is that the lines we see most, centered in our region of the globe, that we see on a day to day and we paint as much as if more thanm others and that are pretty much local, within our quadrant of the us/canada. Seem, due to their frequencey in running and over abundancey to be buffed more than other lines. flat boxes csx,cn,bn, gvsr and up have in my experience always been hated upon for the buff by different kids across the us. However, the railbox company has been attempting to repaint it's line since the early nineties and it seems that it has had very little success at keeping them clean. in other words, paint what you get. i try to get the rare cars first, but will paint the old reliables if i have to. don't be disuaded by the buff. all cars will be buffed sooner or later. local cars seem to be buffed that much faster.

    peace

    Frate Raper,
    Im just curious do you know if CN is consolidating CN flats in a yard and then sending them to get repainted or are they doing the buffing as needed when the cars are in for service? Is CN actually buffing the cars or is CN contracting out work to companies that specialize in buffing cars?

    Thats what happened down south, Railbox had about 200 cars routed to a local CSX yard, then the railboxes made their way south of the city to a company that was contracted by railbox to repaint the cars. It sucks, luckily I walked the lines and caught some real nice gems before they were gone for good...

    I wish I could answer you man, All I know is that I've gotten cars that still smell of the paint and whole lines at a time.I would love to find out where they're doing it just to go bench how many I'm lossing so I can hit twice the number.

    I think it's a yard outside of toronto but I'm not sure cause I see the philly guys up a ton on them fresh fresh paints too.

    These fresth repaints are they the new CN scheme w/ the internet address?

    If so I would bet their just upgrading the fleet, trying to present a good corporate image to customers and the general public by taking older cars w/ faded paint and graf, and cleaning them up a bit. As long as your catching them freshly painted or stamped I'd say kill' em! Hope this helps...

    They've always been quick to buff but they'd leave spots not buffing the whole car.Yeah they are the WWW.CN.CA cars.I still catch the odd stamped car but mostly freshies.Yeah bro I kill them:)

    you have no idea what you're talking about. notice all the cn engines that come through. (havent's seen one here for never.) there's only 3 layups that get them boxes here and only 1 for straight cn flats. the others get cna/cn ridgies. very unimpressed.

    You fellas would be VERY surpirsed at how often they get the play you deserve!
    I've been caught more in the u.s on flats then autoracks or anything else.I'd rather hit american lines too but begers can't be choser5s right? One night like 3 years ago when you could still trace cn by phone I called one after I got home.It was on it's way to Ohio.I don't know where you boys are at but they go down to the midwest on the reg.

    you can thank me for some of those buff marks on some of those slightly old ones.

    I sidebusted a kaws throw up on one back in 97 I remember, thinking I was so bad ass being in the yard by myself...

    fucking toy.
