Yard Safety

Recommended Posts

i went 2 that dead trainbum 1, mate that is sick what kind of sick assholes live in our krazy society?? they must be sick in the head or somethin, and this is a stark reminder too all of us, mess around with 2 tonnes of heavy metal and u could pay the price. i think that while still keepin it real, we should write safe and respect that where we try 2 write the people that throw us out of the yards are only doing there job, altho like kracked said there r some angels and arseholes. u could help brinmg out an angel if u be nice. peace out till next time

I was born in a small town, and lived right next to a very big Yard, I would cross the tracks everyday at least 4 times a day! My Dad worked and still might for Union Pacific. I would always jump them at the couplers, and even go under them. My rule was if they are going slower than i can jog...I would jump them insted of wait, usually at the couplers. Even pulling bikes over with me! Damn Good Good GOOD Informative thread! BUMPZ!

Enyway My Dad being a "Steel Erection worker" hahaha i always thought that was funny...for Union Pacific. That was my first hustle on how to talk your way out of a jam. Im no freigt watch er whatever there called, but I was able to talk my way out of trouble with the little knowledge I had on U.P. And what all goes on......

My Advice for all those without Dads with Steel Erections...Read this thread Again Again And Again......And remember it when you get jammed up by workers ,Bulls, Cops Ect.....Thanks again

so carl, you think if a regular mechanic driving down the lines in his little white truck were to see me, he'd immediatly call the cops? i've never had a run-in with one, but i get the feeling i could talk my way out of it.

In alot of cases yes. But its all about how they generalize, and bum is a bum, A Street kid is a street kid. but at the same time they have jobs to do (Mechanics anyway)But jus to cover the bases, think up Scenarios, and and practice talking your way out of them.

For example: Was caught in the yard one time, and had just finished peicing, I was on my way out. As soon as the bulls got out, I initiated conversation, went something like this...."Damn are you people ever gonna build a new Station ? That building has been there scince The Fortys!" "Whua" was there first statment. Next it went like this," I used to see my dad off from that parking lot every week, when he went out of town, That old fart is 50 years old, and hes still working here." Later on I explained I lived a few houses away, and a short cut through the yard, is always faster, beings how I know it pretty well.

Its all about letting them know you have some kind of corprete knowledge, and your not gonna be there long. I dunn know It worked for me.

Around how many workers are usually in a yard? like a shitload or a couple?

 

Im supposed to go to this really big ass yard on monday, and Its not so much the train safety im worried about (which i still am a little, but im confident i can 'treat every line like its moving'.) but Im pretty much worried about gettin chased,being that im a fatass, and im not used to paintin in a yard,or being in a yard period.

new to yards

 

whats up people, thanks for all the information that everyone put in, its greatly appreciated, well, i have been wanting to paint trains for a long time, but i never had a ride to the yard or ne thing like that, its just way too far from my house, well 2 days ago me and my boy went down to where i knew there was some train action, and a little yard, that they prolly use to switch shit up in, im not sure tho, i dont really know much about yards and stuff, but i wanna learn more, cuz im pretty sure there isnt much security in our yards, but when i get my bike fixed im going to go down there and watch the trains and learn what kind of shit goes on and when they move the cars and all, but i have a few questions, we were chillen and all and there was like this one little section, there were like 3 rows of tracks, and one of the outside rows had like 15 cars on it with no engine attached or anything, were they humping these cars or just storin em there? right kind of parallel to there, there was a track comin off of those that had an engine there just chillen, my boy wanted to get inside it and shit but i was like nah man thats way too risky i dont wanna do all that, now you may call me a pussy and all, but i wasnt gonna step foot on that thing cuz i knew alot less then than i do now that i have read all this, anyways...2 questions, that make me sound really toyish but first what is a number like i read someone say not to go on the numbers or somethin like that, second, a lay-up, i understand that a lay-up is like a platform thingy what do these look like and where are they usually located, if it helps im in louisiana, pm me if you can help me with this or you can post up on here, i would greatly appreciate it thanks a million for all of your input on this subject...peace

a lay up is where trains go overnight and shit, waiting for the other train to pass on their rail,etc

 

numbers are the numbers you seen on a freight train

 

this is more of an artistic photo, but these are the numbers people talk about not going over, dont go over them beacuse thats how the yards/workers etc. identify what theyve got in their yards also, a train must be takin outa service if it has no numbers so your only hurtin yourself if you go over emhttp://www.fotango.com/p/eba00355480f00000015.jpg'>

it's also worth pointing out that workers are different every where you go. Like in California I've had nothing but good vibes from train workers, especially when I hopped out of the Colton yard up to Bakersfield and down a hotshot back to LA. They gave me water and even let me ride in an empty engine when I had to switch trains due to a breakdown. But in Chicago, workers will straight up shoot with air guns cuz they don't want you anywhere near their shit. My man Cos paints only daytime spots in Vancouver and my man Take5 chats with the workers anytime he's in the yards up in Canada.

might sound dumb but iv only like been on a train like 5 times in my life and i wondering which rail is dangerous

That's mainly on subway and light rail tracks. The third rail, which runs down the middle between the two other tracks, has electricity running through it. If you step on it it will electrocute you and yes you will die.

For freights it's the part of the trac that they use to change directions with. If they hapen to change it while your futs on that part it will get caught. The only way to get it out is to let the train come and saw your leg right straight off.

I don't know. Perhaps there is someone who can explain this better than me.:eek:
