    Sometimes I notice when i'm walking down my line of 20 or so reefer cars, their is a lot of junk on most of them. Now I know most toys, or "unexperienced" writers dont think to themselves (this nice white reefer train should be for the "better skilled", or "been in the game for years") type of painters like me and some of you. So does this give us the right to go over the less skilled/weak style painters that are on a very special train car like any reefer, cryo's and rare box cars? When I was a younger lad i'm sure most of my paintings were gone over by better painters if I was up on their sold cold or brand new golden west flat car. So next time I walk up to your non-skilled freight that is on one of them hard to catch trains, it might not look the same a couple hours later.. P.s. Please remember i'm not talking about capping toys on any old freight, I could care less about any old freight, this thread is for the big boys who do big thangs! Holla. :king:

    first come, first serve.

    i avoid painting over people if possible, if i have to give up a flat to paint a coalie, oh well, guess i should get off my ass and paint more so i can have first dibs on shit next time.

    I really believe deep down, writers with weak skills & style know they are weak, so if they have more than 10 freights to choose from, stay off the god dam new reefers because we dont need a first coat!!

    watch out now...the term "better skilled" is relative. just because you think your a "better skilled" writer dosent mean the entire writing community is in agreeance.
    you could very easily be a victim of the same situation of which you speak. im not tryin to call you out or anyone for that matter cause i dont know what any of you write, but just read the opinions of various styles on this board and you will see that one mans trash is another mans treasure. what it usually boils down to for me is whether i have enough paint to completely cover the piece on the car i want to paint. but im not really a box car fag so i hardly ever have that problem on greybellies, gondolas and such.
