Keeping spots chill

Recommended Posts

Guest cracked ass

It's really up to you, but REMEMBER: your freights can run a long, long time, and they will travel the nation. So if your early freights are wack, you are advertising all over the place how bad you are, and it's unlikely you'll ever be able to find and go over the thing like you can with your wall pieces that embarass you. On steel, the toy legacy lasts and lasts.

So, rock walls till you feel comfortable and confident with your style and favorite equipment setup, then research spots and go for it. Heed the yard safety stuff and this thread in particular.

Unless, of course, you're in NYC, where nothing lasts, everybody does whatever they please, and beef is king. The freight spots there are all fried anyway, and still get done despite being fried.

please don't do that cracked. not like it's the most important chunk of information to be handed over the internet but it's the point behind it. tease, you should ask him this in an email. i can't stand the "yard" section on this board because it blatantly gives out techniques and ways of getting over to everybody and anybody who reads this board. too much has already been said, and you think it hasn't been noted? stuff like how to do billboards, what to look like when bombing, etc etc...that kind of stuff you learn from experience, observation, or by word of mouth in person. i know this will get overlooked, and i don't mean to rag on anyone, but just remember that when you give out tips on this board you're giving them out to everybody.

Tease: your question was already answered by the first people you talked to. There's no magic answer, so stick to whatever is obviously low-key.

One of the best tips, I learned the hard way too, coming back to my truck I had cops all over my truck, took the licence and ran my car and ended up calling my dad about his car being stolden and I sat there and watched for like the 30 mins. it took to happen and when i got home my pops wasnt to happy about the whole deal of me being out after 2 and having the cops call numerous times so find a good spot.

 

That and pack out what you pack in, try to keep anything from pissing anyone off and they will never notice.

Another good trick to keeping youre yard chill is to try and figure out which trains are going to leave first. In most cases this shouldnt be too hard, maybe its an easy rotation pattern or you know the particular trains arent going to hang around. Some yards around here have cards inserted into slots on the side of the trains, so you know exactly which ones are going first.

Hit the train that is leaving first, that way the evidence is the fuck out of there before too much of the public notice. The other advantage of doing this, of course, is more hours/days running time for youre peice..

its true...

workers here (the late shift) tell me that they dont care about graffiti, just as long as the cans are picked up. they told me that at night they sometimes trip over cans that are left in the yard. i went ahead and removed a majority of the cans that were in the yard...its not too big, but alot of kids paint there and have no idea about the freight scene.

what sector did is a good idea... i usually bring extra bags with me in case cans explode, to put my mask, whatever. but after painting on my way out i fill whatever i have left with cans and caps... every little helps smile.gif

here's some stuff i've come up with that wasn't mentioned...

 

keep an eye on trains that appear to be owned locally or by the yard... where i'm living now all of the locals are completely covered in tags and pieces... this basically tells everyone that sees it that the yard gets painted by certain writers... the funny thing is is that the writers that do that sort of thing are supposedly "expirienced"... there are battles being dragged out on these local freights as well... it's all pretty retarded...

 

the locals can usually be identified by the numbers... having an x after the numbers usually tells you... but doing recon like cracked said is probably the best way to tell for sure...

 

another thing i'd like to mention about worker relations... sometimes it's best not to say you are a rail fan... i've heard that some workers think that rail fans are fucked up in the head or something... this may not be true but i figure it should be noted... using a variety of excuses comes in handy... i usually just say i'm taking pictures for a model train set i'm working on... or the ever popular art class excuse works good...

Yeah, don't go overboard about being a railfan to workers. I wouldn't even use the term "railfan" to a worker. Just say you like to see freights roll. Workers often think railfans are a little nutso, or at least geeks. They work all day around trains and have developed a sort of friendly contempt for the steel that surrounds them, so little goofballs coming up and getting all excited and taking flicks of engines will often register high on their geek-o-meter.
