    freight backjumps???

    Discussion started by arc7hyp-1 - Jun 5, 2003

    Okay so every night there some autoracks coming through the yard on their way to the lay up just outside of town. They drop about half the string off at this yard and take the first half to the layup and do some switching, messing about etc.. So the ass end half sits at the yard for a good 5-10 minutes maybe, long enough to do a quick burner anyway. then they come and take them away to the layup.
    So, does hittin that ass end qualify as a backjump or whatever the fuck or is there some other fancy term for this method of destruction??

    yes thats a backjump. i'd do it, i imagine its a lot more exciting than what you usually do, and you get to see it roll away while the paint is wet. :cool:

    oh yeah theres no doubt that i'll be hitting them. i've already caught tons of streaks then. just gotta work on some new fast shit before i start using paint. i was just wondering about some "cool" "slang" words to use instead of "hey guys wanna go hit those trains tonight when they are sitting there for a few minutes till they leave?" thats just way too much talking you know?
    thanks

    shit, yeah. i never thought of that.
    i know kids that have rocked outlines there but that aint shit.

    im sure theres ways around it though. like hitting the side that faces the trees.
    and breathing in all the fumes. i dunno.
    they should make paint that smells like grease or oil.

    dude you have to send me some valium hahaha

    actually, i think most of the paint smell is from the gases in the can and not from the paint itself. but the smell dissipates fairly quickly anyway so i wouldent worry about it

    what is the point??

    is it just the novelty of having less than 3 hours to paint?

    On the straight vocab tip, "backjumps" is a term that refers to riding a subway or passenger train to the end of the line, jumping off and hitting it right there in the station before it changes direction. Trains at an endstation usually sit longer than at on-line stops so there's a few more minutes to get over.
    In that light, backjumps is a poor term to apply to freights. Even if you had hopped the freight and then painted it after you jumped off it would still be a stretch to call it that.
    I just use the verb 'ambush' to describe the action you speak of.
