I don't travel...

 

The biggest yard near Pittsburgh is the conway terminal. But it's probably real hard to paint there. Alot of activity and it's right beside a three-lane highway. As for buffing it's all a matter of luck and precision. Try not to paint the numbers. Also if you see a Railbox or a Solid Colid refridgeration car hit them. They don't get buffed as ofted cause they're like rent-a-freights and mad companies use them.
