    How many of you guys are actually friends with yard workers??
    I know some kids who are actually cool with workers and some workers know them personally from them actually talking to them about graff and showing that they're just a cool person in general before painting anything!! I heard about a fr8 kid from the Dirty South region of the States who met some workers in a bar and they told him where to paint at in their yard where he wouldn't get in there way and they wouldn't mind!! Other people have said that the workers let them bench and even take pictures for the kids........ What's your story because I have none???

    i have been known to socialize with yard workers for a few hours at a time when they arent busy...the workers here have alot of time to shoot the breeze...talked with them about graffiti a couple times...they brought it up...we mostly talk about their work, families, and the railroad...i talk to them about college and how i cant get girls....they must think im a loser...but they are cool as shit with me....and yes...i mind my manners, and act like the good guy i really am...

    ive never talked to an on duty worker. this one worker came by the bench. said he saw us when he was pulling the set in the yard. we talked to him for about 2 hours. never let on about graff though.
    weather they think its cool or not, they may tell some other worker who is not so cool about it. thats just my 2cent

    I was once asked 'if i was ok and if my car had broken down and if i needed to use a phone, what was i doing wandering out here'.

    no no i was just taking photos, see, camera....but thanks for asking

    and we had a little chat.

    Luckily i had left the cans under a palm tree farther back.....

    i stay on a strict "wave and pass" relationship with workers

    if not that, it's "see and run"

    I take the same approach. Most workers I run into dont seem like the talkative type....

    i have met and talked to a few current railroad workers and engineers where i used to live. they were very friendly. i met the worker that streaks S.A.C.Q.C (suck a conrail quality cock). he gave me a brand new CSX hat, it ruled. the smile and wave is my usual routine though.

    i usually give them the thumbs up, ive had workers tell me it's ok to paint and i tell them im not a painter and that im taking a short cut, over the summer we where in this yard getting footage and a worker poped out of nowhere and i started filming him the whole time he walked up to us, he than radioed in to the bull so we rolled out, i still got the tape!
