    With a good city map marked with the rail lines and highlighted and a general bus/lightrail METRO map, you can figure out exactly what buses and light rail goes to which yards. Stretch made a huge survey of public transport while he was here in Houston this time for Train Doc and the CCG. He's carefully documenting locations, landmarks, street names, bus routes and numbers, etc., etc., etc. so that tramps coming into Houston can use the CCG to move around town easily and quickly, without having to scrounge around trying to figure out Houston's incomprehensible, Byzantine bus system.

    It's a good idea. Think about doing it for the rail yards, junctions, etc. in your city. It could easily go into the CCG.

    Any writer worth his salt knows the public transportation system in his city quite well. For one thing, the conveyances themselves are the most popular and original graffiti targets: subways, inside and out; buses, inside and out; tunnels, and the walls and rooftops visible from the train lines. So most writers have ridden every line several times at least. Those inclined to do freights have certainly turned up spots this way (newjacks beware, it's probably somebody else's spot already). So we're already on to this technique for different reasons as you suggested.
