    listen, i wouldn't wait to hear the answer. i'd go find out yourself. i haven't had any real issues but i've been drinking much more than painting lately. strip bars and booze should be my sign name.

    yesterday i was driving down this tiny road near a yard. and it goes past these huge tanks or gasoline i think. well i came around a corner. and there was a cop sitting right at the end of this dead end road. so i backed up pretty quick and as i was coming out of the enterance a cop was sitting there too. i didn't get stopped but i'm sure they thought i was up to something.

    im sure until something more happens terrorism why it should be alright. the big yard here had tabs on me the second i hit the access road though..they usually doesnt happen. the yard i paint in is still 'safe' as it ever was. if you hit layups im thinking you'll be alright. just wear gloves and keep your paint easily ditchable. you might want to park your car in a more secure spot too. other than that..keep painting just be more careful.

    you would think it would not change anything but i dunno


    well i gotta say that round here i haven't noticed anything personally, but others have. in fact direct confirmation from a bull that shit is hot. and throught he grape vine, a major port town which will remain nameless is hotter than usual. city cops making rounds in a train yard doesn't add up. especially in said city. keep your eyes and ears open...

    I'm in Houston, and everybody says there's more cops and bulls, but I haven't really seen that. I've caught out three times since Sept. 11, twice in one yard, and once from a park that the train tracks go thru, and I have yet to see any extra security. I see a lot of tags, and a lot of half cars, because Houston is a big ass port city, and we get railcars from all over the place thru here. Even though I haven't seen any increase in the number of cops and bulls, I'd still be careful. Union Pacific and BNSF are the two major railroads around here, and UP has a "zero tolerance" policy for tresspassers and BNSF bulls write down your name. I know a couple of people that got popped painting and got arrested for violating curfew, because the bull didn't catch them with the can in their hand. Their parents had to come get them at the Chimney Rock Center--that's a detainment center for kids.

    Between the stuff mentioned on that forum, and this thread, and the simple fact of a new mentality awakened in the American population (people more observant/suspicious/Joe Hero-ish), it makes sense to lie low for a bit, or at least use extra caution, especially on the in and out of spots.

    the only extra security I have heard about is there a freighter yard which connects to an amtrak yard close to here. There ws a story on the news a few days after the bombings where they were talking about how mass transit systems other than planes will have beefed up security. This was shot from withing that yard. I haven't had any extra trouble with any yards..since I saw that I have left that yard alone..but I would recomend being a bit more cautious.

    this is totally un realated but is it just me or is this forum usually the one with the most intellegent discussions?
