    The first top to bottom on a North American Rail Car was credited to whom and what year.

    alright you got me. I did the first top to bottom. It was bad day and I wasn't feeling it. The year was 1950 and I was battling a local crew for that spot. I won.

    Oh yeah I also derailed the first train by placing some boulders on the tracks. :p

    okay mr honkey town. it was a sentocavstar on a cr 50' inside brace.
    it was actually began in the summer of 1988 or 9 but they got raided and did not complete it until some time later...can you tell the graffiti audience how long it ran unfinished? where it was started and where sent finally caught up to it and finished it?...no i didnt think you could...see your knowledge is not quite as infinite as you thought it was.

    no, I derailed the first train. actually it was one of those handcarts, and we derailed it with fist sized rocks. it jumped the tracks and landed in some bushes. then they got it back on the tracks and left. true story.

    What is it with this graffiti freight trivia? Just give us the god damn history lesson and get it over with. If it were about the old NY subways it might actually be interesting or something.

    Actually to confirm this story, THE LAW spoke to a party who was present on the day of the legendary "one letter a car day" claims that it wasn't even close to being finished....suppose it wouldn't matter, he could do one letter every ten years and it would have the same effect that doing it on the same day would.


    kinda makes sense that the only published flick of it was the R.
