    Hey, i dont want to jinx a good thing, but has it occured to anyone else that as the freight lines become more and more bombed out that companies will begin buffing cars until theyre undoable? Ive already heard talk of companies buffing regularly, and from what ive seen Rail Box seems to be keeping their cars buffed. Anyone?

    A. this belongs in trainspotting. no pictures = not on the bench
    B. You obviously havent given this much thought. Railroads are struggling to stay in the game nowadays, with a very slim profit margin and less deciated shippers. Graffiti...so long as it doesnt interfere with operations much, is given very low priority as far as spending goes. With a few notable exceptions (high profile equipment, etc.) most companies are just ignoring it...
    besides...the sheer logistics of millions of cars being buffed in thousands of yards all across the continent is just absurd....its not happening anytime soon.

    whats the point? its a freight train. built slidly for abuse and wear and tear. id doesent hurt the product does it? why bother? is it really worth it to police every yard and lay up to keep off graffiti something that doesent intefere with the goods being shipped? i thhink not. ever since there was freight trains ther was graffiti. someone will always write on them.
