Passenger Trains...Flixx from allover

Recommended Posts

<span style='color:purple'>well it does say passenger transit, and unless Americans use "Cotton Belt" freights to get from A-B, get those commuters up, and lets see!</span> ;)

I agree with you Guilt Ridden

 

Im not on that Euro trip calling People from there EuroTrash,

I honestly think that Germany etc... and others have taking it up a notch.

 

I see the wider variety in colors also.

All I was saying was that if you dedicate your GRAFFITI CAREER to just doing Subways, Passengers, L's, etc... That just get buffed the next day.

Whats it worth.. Whats it to you, just for the picture....

I mean paint it, keep on, im just asking, not hating, and Im not telling you to stop, its good to see more work.

 

But come on, these kids chilling in the tunnel taking pictures of them fooling around, and constantly wrecking those trains, most not be heated.

The times I painted I couldn't even let my camera flash go off because I would be noticed.

I do give props and respect them for painting...

But graffiti is not to ruing beautiful things, that are much needed and productive...

 

Instead, Graffiti should be that beautiful thing that is much needed and productive...

 

Feel me and if you don't, put your hand over my heart and feel my beat.

a few from a trip across the pond

 

Belgium

Ah, Belgium... after all these years, my first time seeing rolling panels... seeing it in magazines or on video simply doesn't compare to reality. Brussels was a cool city, too... a tip of the conductor's cap to the guys who met us there.

 

Holland

my humble opinion

 

NOT LIKE ANYBODY ASKED BUT HERE GOES:

 

to be quite honest i really dont give a shit about who's style is better. the mere fact that kids in europe are bangin' steel says alot. being that i'm from NYC my point of view is as such. i dont really care how toy a writers style is, the fact that he goes and applies it on transit makes it legit.

LISTEN UP FOLKS

thats what this graff game is about. in time we would hope that they would aquire some skills but the fact is that it should by no means diminish what he/she has done.

GETTING UP/ CATCHIN FAME is what i got in this for 20+ years ago

now i paint for me. my own self enjoyment

 

*thats not why i paint now but it was when i started*

Who carres ???

 

Indeed, I've to admit, cool opinion...

I'd just like to add something regarding the competition we have here between Fr8t addicts and Clean train lovers...

Please try to give a consructive opinion when putting a note...it's not by insulting passenger train threads that you will get more respect for the fr8t scene...

Both are great, Street bombing's great, stickers are creative,throw ups are cool and hall of fames rock !! Grafitti is all about those different parts of the challenge, that's it !! If you prefer one, no hard feeling, you can tell why but don't start insulting something you (maybe) never tried !

I also wnated to say if somebody is only doing one thing (let's say hall of fames, but it could have been subways or freights :crazy: ), he is a specialist but he will maybe never know what's inside the other parts and that's a real pitty !! :o

 

Anyway, just a small note to give a comment on the picture below....

Those red "cherry" trains have been lent by Belgium to the Netherlands during 2 years. Those models are only running during rush hours and the pieces on the picture were done by Dutch people in the Netherlands...byt who cares ?? :confused:

europe has more and better trains, you can paint 5 different cleans in one yard there. then get on a train wake up in another country with more trains..........in conclusion the american transit system sucks, maybe thats why euros love the clean steel. plus when i was in italy i saw so much stuff running that really gives you an incetive to paint........in the states i dream of just have a clean not directly go to the shop and get buffed. no beef just the facts.

why does everyone say that, they only run in most countries, as they get hit so hard that there is no way they can ghost every painted train, the most of Italy is a exeption to the rule though.

yeah, its not like they want to run the trains that are bombed.. they just dont have a choice, either they run with graffiti or they dont run at all, which is a pretty bad thing when your business is to transport people.. (-;

Depending on the train system

 

Anyway, seeing your train in traffic depends on many things like the country, the transit company (private or not), the budget they can spend on buffing, the culture etc...

Look at New York, Amsterdam, Dortmund, back in the days your train was running for ages...Today, as soon as they can, they take it off the traffic to clean it !

On the other hand, in Belgium for example, trains are getting hit for around 12-15 years and back in the days, you should have been lucky to see something running. While today, many pannels are rolling the line (depending on the model, don't ask me why !), some are even running for more than one year...

Anyway, I can understand Americans are hitting Fr8ts, as they are running for ages while pannels are not even pulling out the yard !

 

Some more pictures.... :lol:

 

The last model we get in Belgium (in traffic since last year !)

And the kind of models running for months even years, the Inter City train

Hey Guys,

 

Do you also have train lovers in your countries that are just tacking flicks of trains because they like it !?? I suppose you do..

In Belgium, we've got 2 guys updating their own site on a regular basis, and what we can find there is some real nice pictures (even if the pannels are not that clear on the pictures !) :
