    alright. i live the colorado. YEAH. but this is going to be my first year out there paintin in snow boats, so the question is: how does snow and moisture in the air effect my paint on the train.

    there are no stupid questions, well there are, but this ain't one of 'em. past experiences or advice would be much needed....peace....PROject ile.....

    the metal gets really cold
    the paint gets really cold

    the paint runs and drips like crazy

    fuck the snow, its the temperature that will cause problems for you..last time i checked, snow did not lay on the panels of trains (gravity??)

    if there is moisture in the air, the trains will soak some of it up and it'll make the running and dripping worse.

    oh yeah, you'll get really cold too and your fingers may freeze and fall off

    oh yeah, past experience...

    get ready to do a little suffering ...and you can put the cans of paint in your armpits or down your pants to warm it up a bit..hehehee yeah i've done it

    that shits all obvious.

    Im wondering about getting to/from the freights. If you use entrances other than the main ones, you pretty much give up your whereabouts.. has anyone had any problems with this type of shit in the past?

    i live in upstate ny, and we get snow from october-april. fucking brutal.

    yeah, or drag your bag behind you..

    but in upstate ny, they get feet of snow, not inches, and its not so easy to just sweep em away, plus doing that is a bit obvious in itself...

    so true.. im talking about painting in like 3 feet of snow.

    i've never thought about the broom thing, that sounds like it could work.

    but still, im gonna be mad frustrated and I dont really feel like giving up half a year of painting..
    oh well.

    man dont use rusto in the winter if you can help it, i know its thicker, but it takes 10 years to dry instead of the normal 2 years when its warm. and shit aint happening if you use krylon to outline. winter just sucks for painting, but it does keep everyone out of the yards.

    that's tight thank you for advice.
    i feel you about gettin in the yard, it won't be as sly, but i've been talkin to some folks from around these parts and i guess cops and security aren't willing to chase some kids in the snow. well most of the time. rusto is tight.
    and i'm down to get all freezing cold, i gotta do my homework...peace...PRojeCTor.. . .. .. . ... . . . . .

    I sympathize with those who will brave deep snow to get over, but other than the various stuff mentioned above for keeping yourself and your equipment warm, there's no magic tricks. It's as bad as it seems: you must trudge, you're leaving an obvious trail, and it's a lot of fucking work. I've done it plenty of times, but definitely less often than in summer, that's for fucking sure.
    The only thing I can think of is do a bunch of extra walking before you get busy - leaving sets of footprints that loop around, cross, and confuse. Or wait till workers have left the first tracks.

    if your'e lucky the creosote soaked rail ties will have melted off on a sunny day and you can get in the yard scott free, but walking around the dead lines is a diffrent story. you should also bring some shitty rag along with you to wipe up the moisture underneath the ice you just had to break off the fr8 with the bottom of your can. watch out for moose and always use piss to write your handle in the snow at the edge of the yard. forget about using silver unless it's above 20 degrees or you don't care if you can't read what you just did, especially when it's rusto chrome vs. krylon. use stocks! and remember, a little brandy never hurt anyone, just their style..
