    Well not really for Europe writers only, but for anyone with even vaguely accurate information:

    Looking through some old fliks I found a stack of Euro trains from the late 1980s. Most look like there from The Netherlands and England.
    does anyone know what was the European country to have their trains ravished by writers. And who was the first writer(s) to hit trains in Europe? This is not scientific research or anything. Its merely to satistfy my own curiousity.

    Thanks in Advance

    i know who and where the fliks i have are from (thats broken english)
    i was wanting to know some names dates and locations of some of the first euro trains. most of the ones i have are by rhyme, oasis in london. in holland i have fliks by sure, eras, and a couple others. im too lazy to look ofr them again and scanning is just out of the question. someone said that phase 2 streetcar in london (i think) may have been the first.

    I think the first countires would be the UK, Holland, Germany (that's my assumption though).

    I know trains were getting done in 1984 in London and there are rumours that visiting Americans did them even earlier than that. Who this was all by I don't know.

    what kind of paint do you think they used over there? graffiti in europe? 1980s? what a concept!

    germany 1985

    i rode the trains all around Munich for two weeks in May of 1985, and saw exactly *one* bomb in orange on a bridge... that was about all the graff i saw anywhere at the time. not even window scribes. i guess things might have changed a bit in these almost 20 years...

    83/84 was the first subs done in London..
    Reading interviews with London writers a lot of them mention "Spray Saint" being one of the first..Skam mentions in an interview tags on streets in 78/79.

    thanks se. thats what i figured since subway art was published in 83 by Thames and Hudson of London. That was also around the time all those hip hop guys were touring all over the world leaving a little influence everywhere they went. i was pretty sure it was london, amsterdam or somewhere in germany. i know its a long shot but do you know where any fliks might be?
