    I vote that we keep this to NEW flicks from now on.
    Also, what makes a thread like On My Travels so good is that all the flicks are original. You and I took them, they're not stolen from another website.

    To get things rolling, some Xmas damage:

    Graffiti threaten rail prices


    The graffiti often put trains out of service
    Rail ticket prices in Brighton could rise because the cost of cleaning off graffiti has escalated.

    South Central Trains says damage done to trains and stations by two graffiti gangs in Brighton is costing almost £3m a year to clean up.

    Now the company has warned that the cost of the damage may have to be passed on to passengers.

    In the past few months, trains have been targeted at every railway siding between Brighton and Gatwick.

    The real thing that annoys us is when we are not able to deliver a train the following day to the passengers that are expecting it

    David Haynes, South Central Trains

    David Haynes, head of security at South Central Trains, said: "It is annoying and obviously these sort of costs get passed on to the customer.

    "The real thing that annoys us is when we are not able to deliver a train the following day to the passengers that are expecting it."

    He said sometimes it would be dangerous for the trains to be used because graffiti had been sprayed on the driver's window.

    Overall the company said it costs £1.7m a year to clean trains with £500,000 spent on cleaning stations.

    Every time a train is put out of service it costs the company £20,000.


    British Transport Police said attempts were being made to try to stop the vandals by using CCTV and bringing in handwriting experts to try to identify tags sprayed on trains

    Graffiti louts derailed

    Alan Salter


    CRAZE: Vandals are costing the network thousands

    A CRACKDOWN on graffiti bandits in Greater Manchester has netted a group of vandals who have caused tens of thousands of pounds of damage to the rail network.

    The seven youngsters were caught as part of Operation Juggernaut, which is designed to combat a growing craze for spray-paint attacks.

    One youth alone is believed to have run up a bill of more than £20,000.

    Detectives with British Transport Police said they have discovered a whole alternative culture - often fed by the internet - dedicated to global vandalism.

    One site discovered by the M.E.N. calls itself "the official website of Manchester graffiti" and uses a photograph of a train covered in spray paint on its homepage.

    Police fear the craze, already raging in London and the north east, has arrived in Manchester with a vengeance after a sharp rise in attacks on trains, stations, and line side structures like bridges and retaining walls in cuttings this year.

    Efforts

    "Writers" adopt their own distinctive "tag" and often compete to paint it in the most audacious locations.

    A report published by the crime reduction charity Nacro claimed that vandalism is costing public transport £250m a year and undermining government efforts to persuade drivers to leave their cars at home.

    Chief Insp Peter Holden, officer in charge of Manchester's BTP station at Piccadilly, said of the vandals: "We have always had a problem of people travelling from other parts of the country at bank holidays, but there has been a marked increase this year."

    Much of the painting happens at night when the artists believe they can work undisturbed.

    Now a new and even more expensive trend is emerging - of etching designs on train windows while they are in service, leaving train operators to spend thousands on replacing the glass.

    In London, where the practice is rife, London Underground estimates it would cost them £10m to replace etched glass on all its Tube trains.

    Chief Insp Holden added: "Apart from the cost of repairing the damage the operators are forced to take their trains out of service.

    "And we are lucky that no one has been killed. At night, people think that everything stops once the timetable has finished but that is not the case. The power remains on and trains are moved around the network all the time.

    Penalties

    "The people doing this consider it to be a legitimate form of art and do not see it as an offence. But it can carry penalties of up to six months in prison."

    Among the vandals was a 16-year-old from Poynton who has admitted two charges of criminal damage costing £7,500 in Buxton and Manchester and asked for five other counts to be taken into consideration.

    He has been ordered by a court to spend the next six months cleaning graffiti from railway property.

    A 17-year-old from Bramhall who was held in south Manchester is to be charged with 14 offences of causing criminal damage worth £20,000.

    Two 16-year-olds from Swinton and Eccles were arrested in the city centre and given police reprimands. A 21-year-old from Chorlton was also arrested and is on bail pending further inquiries.

    And a 21-year-old and a 22-year-old, also from Chorlton, were arrested at Piccadilly Station, allegedly in possession of spray-paint cans, and have been bailed.
