    if you already have good amount of them hit, why keep hitting? unless its just a chill spot to paint at and you don't have anything else to paint.

    if you really want to paint trains...find more yards and layups..
    drive for gods sake (if you can)
    if you cant drive, run with someone who can....

    Like the old saying goes "Where there's smoke, there's fire". This is true w/yards & layups...Where there's yards, there's layups. Just think, they don't load up the cars in the yard now do they! They have them layed up some place where they load/unload before moving on to the yard to other destinations. Look about on a map, find industrial parks and what not. Then check them out by driving there. Or you can go on www.mapquest.com and follow the tracks, then when something catches your eye, use the "aerial photo" tab and see if it's the real deal. That's just how I found all of mine. Ohh and when I found them, it was mostly me walking to the spot and finding the hidden treasure.

    there has got to be more lay ups in your vacinity. search is my only suggestion. I agree that mapquest site is a good idea and have tried it before. if you have a model hobby train store in your town somtimes they carry a plethora of information. read as many old maps as possible. some times they are more accurate than recent publications.

    B Hound, I fell your pain of uncertainty 110%. Everyone I paint with has gone through the same deadend problem....but in the last year, there's been hope. We used to have 1 and 1 1/2 broke-ass spots where 9x out of 10 your fill would roll away on you. Now, i'm juggling between a serplus of locations and no one gets bothered.
    There's always an option....especially if you live in the U.S.

    an island? where???
    i'm asking cuz i don't think some islands fr8s leave, they get
    used over and over and only travel up and down the island....
    in this case you could be shit outta luck...
    whereas some larger islands cars leave and can eventually end up
    travelling the mainland..

    i'm guessing this place isn't that far out of the way since you said that writers come from out of town to paint it.
