odd freight catches

Recommended Posts

seems like all the spotted lists are comprised of the same 200 or so writers. im just curious of some of the weirder stuff youve caught over the years.

 

ive seen

a ja streak

a couple of seen throwups.

1 espo outline

a duel piece -w- sento

a vogue freight from 02

a cool outline of a dinosaur skull

faces welded into the doors of boxcars by repair guys.

i dunno ill think of more.

i once saw the outline of a head that either twist or 21rak did, all it had was a hairline and ears. i also once saw a car that had a twist bomb on one side of the door and amaze bomb on the other but ive sometimes wondered if it was actually them. it wasnt colors that ive ever seen either of them use in the past at all, bright flourescents and stuff. i also once saw a wholecar that i think was done by retina that was pretty nice, it was extremely hard to see the outline though.

once I was painting and just as I was finishing my peice I heard a noise coming down the tracks... Due to the way the layup was the only thing I could do was crawl under the train and climb out the othe side of it.. as I went under the train I saw a pone tag that said "hide shhh" I always thought it was weird since I was trying to hide too....

ive seen a lot of weird shit on boxcars. but the weirdest would have to be some rambling someone wrote about jesse jackson and south africa, and some stick figures going all the way across the middle of a boxcar and in big letters above it said "the juggler"

other than that just the odd crazy ramblings scrawled on the sides of cars..."abortion is a sacrifice to satan" "the us needs more gun control: save the rapists!"...etc....

well the mound you would just have to see for yourself. long story short his shit looked like a civilian that had a little bit of skill with paint. he used to do the rather decrotive, yet small burners. I caught 2 myself, but i have had them mailed to me from cali, florida and the midwest. A real mystery. havent seen hide nor hair of him since like 94.

Guest speaker(with an arrow pointing at himself) at the free breast exam

....got milk" or something like that it was halarious.

2 of my favorites are:

 

"Im not the baddest son of a bitch in KC, but im bangin his wife and he knows it"

it was wicked sick.

 

and as far as finding cans on frieghts, i sometimes stash mine in the bottom rung of the ladder if i dont want to make too much noise throwing it into the woods. im sure thats not too good an idea, but its better than leaving it on the ground for yard workers to notice/trip over like everyone else in my area.
