heat

 

also something to keep in mind, not really safety wise, but to not heat out the yard.. Dont paint autoracks unless their empty. We've got tones of car plants around here and Im sure theyll be asking for more security at the yards if they find alot of their vehicles have paint all over them.

thank god for trainworkers

 

my ass got saved by a trainworker a couple weeks ago. he got about 3 cars down from me when i seen him and he told me they already called the cops and which way to run. i still got sweated by the cops on the way back to the ride, but i was clean by then because that worker had warned me and i ditched my shit. he was walking down the whole line looking at what we had done and i'm sure he knew who i was.

alot of times i write good things about trainworkers on trains to like make them not hate us. i write viva the name of the union local or something like "trainworkers get more blowjobs". i think that helps them like us more.

witnessed more line crossing stupidity today. While watching a line at a neighborhood shortcut it slowed to a stop. The section in front of me was about 8 or 9 long wood decked flats with the old looking vertical brakewheels at the end. Very unsafe for climbing over cause above the stirrup is only one hold at waist level, meaning you gotta lean over on to the deck to get up. While I was looking down the line to see the signal (two track, both were double reds) out of nowhere this 8-9 year old kid pops up and scurries over the car. Stupid, but I dont expect much more from kids that age.

Then from the side I'm on some chick about 16 walks past me and starts very akwardly climbing onto the flat. Now, from this side you cant see either direction of the other mainline track (2-track mainline) so even assuming she makes it over without the line starting up, she could be comming down on the other side to find a train flying towards her on the open track. stupid stupid stupid.

I wasn't about to give lectures cause I could see the double reds, but I was tempted. Next time I will, cause even with those double reds the line still lurched to life when I wasn't expecting it. I saw the slack coming and plugged my ears (I was about 2 feet from the line) but it suprised me. Turns out I was looking at the closest signals, when the front end had already passed and was waiting on the next set. That being the case, the signals I could see would always be double red....and not a good judge of what the line will do.

 

 

stay safe

these thug kids were playing on the trains when i was at a siding in the woods taking flicks. they called me over and started bullshitting. these idiots were playing on some of the container garbage cars. i know this siding pretty well and those things don't sit still for long. i was just waiting to that shit jump and one of them fall.

ok, that crossing I was talking about at the top of the page....guess what was in the paper today? not a pedestrian, but some idiot in a van tryed to beat the train, which according to the guy behind him was "right there, theres no way he could have made it" and eneded up getting hospitalized after the train mashed the fuck out of the back end of his van. stupid motherfucker.

another depressing cover story on the paper this morning. a 9 year old girl on a bike tried to beat the train at a controlled crossing and got dragged a good distance and had her foot severed. She's lucky to be alive. Shit happens all the time out here it seems...

alright this thread is shit

i just started painting trains recently but i have been hopping them for the past few years,, through my expereince in yards 90% of the time the workers are gonna be cool with you if your cool with them, ask them questions if you meet them they usually will hook you up with all the info you need to be safe in the yard ( what time new lines come into the yard, what time lines leave the yard where the bulls like to hang out, where what lines are going, who won the sox game, etc..) if you gonna paint a yard always spend alot of time scoping it out first and try to social engineer some info out of the workers, for not covering the numbers masking or duct tape, my trick is to bring stencils and copy down the numbers before hand and rewrite them when i am done. whatever you do in a yard just dont act stupid, dont go into a yard drunk high etc etc thats a good way to get killed my boy almost go himself killed a couple months ago hopping a frieght out of phillie with me cause he was drunk he was lucky and only tore a few ligaments in his leg and knee and broke his ankle, just remenber your painting around 30ton pices of metal that can travel at high speeds and can reach those speed in a few minutes.. be aware

WINNIPEG -- One man is dead after two freight trains smashed into his vehicle yesterday, which was sliced in half, and dragged the wreckage almost five kilometres.

 

Emergency crews had to pry the victim's remains from a jagged tangle of metal wedged under a grain hopper car along the south Winnipeg rail line.

 

Police say they were able to salvage a licence plate, but had not yet identified the driver.

 

They could not determine the make of car.

 

Traffic had stopped at the crossing for a 110-car westbound freight train.

 

The barrier arms were down, signal lights were flashing and the train had already entered the crossing when the man drove past several vehicles already stopped, crashed through the barriers and was hit by the first train.

 

The car spun and was wedged into the wheels and underside of a grain hopper car.

 

The train continued moving west, its crew unaware of the deadly crash, until an eastbound freight train sliced off the protruding back half of the car.
