I dont care how many freights you have painted. I hate people who think they are the kings of their domain.Go into the city and catch a real spot.

 

I never claimed to be king of anything. And I do police my spots. I just drop info on here so newjacks and others who don't understand how to keep freight action on the DL for as long as possible can figure some things out rather than blow their own spots the first time out.

...good advice... most of this stuff i figured out the hard way since i didn't know anyone when i started doing freights...i think taping numbers off is a good idea...epecially the lt wt and ld wt numbers this way you have a bigger area to work with on the panel...but sometimes it's more fun to be creative and go around them... workers think railfans are geeks because railfans are geeks... but at the same time they know so much useful information about trains... i met some that told me tons of info about when they switch trains, where they're going and all that kind of shit about this one spot i know... but they are definately geeks...

This makes me feel sad..and for the following reasons.

 

-I have a small layup close to my house, about a 10 min walk away.

-This place is chill, i can paint during the day/ night/ weekends/ weekdays

-anyway some kids tagged the wall behind the layup and this was about 2 years ago so nobody was really choked about it, i was, but im really too lazy to go down and match the buff color and buff the wall

 

-and until recently, some cat i brought there has started bringing his other friends of whom are in gr 8 and who dont know trains at all..

 

 

needless to say, sometimes the only reason i got there is to clean up the mess these fuckers leave...anyway im just venting...

 

 

but it is so important to know what the fuck is up with trains yards...and if you paint a yard more than once, you are returning to the scene of a crime....which is bad news. so watch your ass...

Question for Cracked Ass......

 

... or anybody else who has considered it.

 

Let's say you paint spots that are not chill, and you don't have a car, so the commute can be just as dangerous as the mission itself.

 

Now let's say I don't want to take the cans out with me. Can I put them in a gondola of something, or even better throw them into a train that is already moving? They will get found by a workbum or factory worker, but they will be anywhere from 2 to 2000 miles away when they are found, therefore they are not found in the spot, and people don't know where they were used.

 

Would you consider this responsible and acceptable behavior? And to eb extra careful, let's say I wipe the cans down before I put them in the train.

 

What do you think?

went on vacation to visit my girlfriend who lives over 6 hours away. shitty. but anyway. i decide to hit up a layup in her town. she lives in a ghost town that does tons of government shipping... so there's frieghts just sitting everywhere. i actually struggled to find graff in the city. the building where the layup was was bombed by a writer... but it looked like it was from 1912.

 

i checked the spot out in the day... walked the tracks for a bit... there were 4 tracks i think. one running into an amtrak track. anyway... the spot seemed chill during the day. real chill actually. there was no one there. no one dropping off cars... no one picking up cars... and every car that was there... was a virgin. never been touched by a can of paint.

 

so i went back at night. and started my piece. the only thing that seperated me and the track in back of me was a small patch of bushes. nothing high enough to hide in.

 

my piece was coming out quite nice... i had the fill finished, the outline finished, almost done the 3d.... and then i was just going to throw up a nice quick iris blue forcefield, flick and walk away... when a train started coming relatively fast on the track in back of me. my mind went blank for a second, as to where to go. i was thinking of running around the car i was painting [ as it was the first in line ], but i didn't know if the train was dropping off cars... so i turned and ran across the tracks. when doing so... i stumbled. the bushes dipped down a little bit causing me to be confused as to where my feet were going to be placed, and fell hard knees first onto a track of an oncoming train. my can of rusto scattered out of my hand and down the track. to make a long story short... i seriously just made it off the track. and ran to my car. my knees were bruised as hell. they still are. this happened almost 2 1/2 weeks ago.

 

so... the moral of this story is... you can be smart. you can observe your spots. you can do everything imaginable... but the best thing to do... is to always think the worst and have an escape route for every possible situation. which i didn't. because i was down there earlier that day for a good amount of time... and nothing rolled in. i wasn't expecting to have to run from a train like i did.

 

hope this helps some youngsters out. paint chill. and paint safe.

This doesnt just apply to freight spots, but all spots. I had a certain chill bridge spot that only I pieced at for a long time. Then some kids come down there and start tagging shit, doing throwups, and attracting attention. Now they tell all their gay friends, and go over my shit. cops come and check the place once and awhile. BLOWN UP.

Time for a new spot.

if you have a routine you do to stay safe, do not get lazy with it and slack off...because i think that tends to happen to people in general...stick to the safe side of things, which is just to use common sense, and do not get lazy

quick question

 

eh first i just want to give a big ass thanks to Cracked, and ese, and all the other cats that post up info for the writers that plan on doing this for a long time and do it b/c they love it. (I love you fuckin guys.....bump GIA) But my question is say that their is a yard but the company that owns it is now shutdown will their still be fr8s strollin through or what? and also this spot was kinda hot back in the day and now nothing but bums sleep there eating vienna sausages.

LEAVE NO TRACE

 

...well except for your piece. There are certain people in a yard in CO I visited who thought it would be cute to leave cans in the suspension, like in the crook bet. the wheels. I know who it was too b/c the same color was on the piece above these wheels. STOP IT!!! Everyone also seems to think that even if they arent tagging anything besides the train, its ok to leave lids, tips, and gloves. NO!!!:mad: The best thing to do also is clean up the other idiot's mess. I cant even tell you how many times I have packed out like 2 shoppng bags of empties and I am sick of it.
