suprisingly I've seen next to no impact on traffic around here. However, most of the industries served here are those whose demand is constant...staple products. Textiles, Lumber, etc.

yeah....several of our favorite spots down here have been empty for quite some time....half of the night (sometimes the whole night) may be wasted trying to find something to paint on...

over here things have been extremely dry since spring. main yards that usually have 12 lines have had a pretty consistant 3 or 4 lines for the last few months, not many holyrollers around like usual. a lot of the layups around town have been empty, and not as many live lines stop anymore. havn't really been able to do too much these past few months. the BN yards dont seem to have been effected like the UP ones though. strange that other cities are suffering as well, all these trains have to be hiding out somewhere, right ? has the west coast, canada, and the east coast been effected like the midwest and south ? ..

trains haven't been sticking around as long in northern cali. the railroad is trying to be better business men and get customers their product quicker, plus a lot of the trains are being parker in yards with higher security...i'll take what i can get, though.

Many of our layups out this way have been empty everytime we go to them and we have to hit one of the major yards in the area. I don't know what it is, but the area is starting to get DRY as fuck. Its annoying, but we still have many places to paint, it just means we have to go a little farther to do them. Oh well...

I take that all back!!!!!! maybe it was just a fluke weekend.... but i had real trouble finding a train to paint... i spent 4 hours on sunday doing nothing but driving around looking for a spot to paint, all empty, or trains already rocked...... what the fuck i thought the stock market was going back up!!!!!:confused: :confused: :confused:
