    odd freight catches

    Discussion started by Jerk182 - Sep 2, 2002

    seems like all the spotted lists are comprised of the same 200 or so writers. im just curious of some of the weirder stuff youve caught over the years.

    ive seen
    a ja streak
    a couple of seen throwups.
    1 espo outline
    a duel piece -w- sento
    a vogue freight from 02
    a cool outline of a dinosaur skull
    faces welded into the doors of boxcars by repair guys.
    i dunno ill think of more.

    i once saw the outline of a head that either twist or 21rak did, all it had was a hairline and ears. i also once saw a car that had a twist bomb on one side of the door and amaze bomb on the other but ive sometimes wondered if it was actually them. it wasnt colors that ive ever seen either of them use in the past at all, bright flourescents and stuff. i also once saw a wholecar that i think was done by retina that was pretty nice, it was extremely hard to see the outline though.

    once I was painting and just as I was finishing my peice I heard a noise coming down the tracks... Due to the way the layup was the only thing I could do was crawl under the train and climb out the othe side of it.. as I went under the train I saw a pone tag that said "hide shhh" I always thought it was weird since I was trying to hide too....

    ive seen a lot of weird shit on boxcars. but the weirdest would have to be some rambling someone wrote about jesse jackson and south africa, and some stick figures going all the way across the middle of a boxcar and in big letters above it said "the juggler"

    just caught a Ket hollow...dont know how many of those are running around but i though it was neat...definatly not one of the usuals

    other than that just the odd crazy ramblings scrawled on the sides of cars..."abortion is a sacrifice to satan" "the us needs more gun control: save the rapists!"...etc....
