How many kids actually..........

Recommended Posts

How many of you guys are actually friends with yard workers??

I know some kids who are actually cool with workers and some workers know them personally from them actually talking to them about graff and showing that they're just a cool person in general before painting anything!! I heard about a fr8 kid from the Dirty South region of the States who met some workers in a bar and they told him where to paint at in their yard where he wouldn't get in there way and they wouldn't mind!! Other people have said that the workers let them bench and even take pictures for the kids........ What's your story because I have none???

i have been known to socialize with yard workers for a few hours at a time when they arent busy...the workers here have alot of time to shoot the breeze...talked with them about graffiti a couple times...they brought it up...we mostly talk about their work, families, and the railroad...i talk to them about college and how i cant get girls....they must think im a loser...but they are cool as shit with me....and yes...i mind my manners, and act like the good guy i really am...

ive never talked to an on duty worker. this one worker came by the bench. said he saw us when he was pulling the set in the yard. we talked to him for about 2 hours. never let on about graff though.

weather they think its cool or not, they may tell some other worker who is not so cool about it. thats just my 2cent

I was once asked 'if i was ok and if my car had broken down and if i needed to use a phone, what was i doing wandering out here'.

 

no no i was just taking photos, see, camera....but thanks for asking

 

and we had a little chat.

 

Luckily i had left the cans under a palm tree farther back.....

if not that, it's "see and run"

 

I take the same approach. Most workers I run into dont seem like the talkative type....

i have met and talked to a few current railroad workers and engineers where i used to live. they were very friendly. i met the worker that streaks S.A.C.Q.C (suck a conrail quality cock). he gave me a brand new CSX hat, it ruled. the smile and wave is my usual routine though.

i usually give them the thumbs up, ive had workers tell me it's ok to paint and i tell them im not a painter and that im taking a short cut, over the summer we where in this yard getting footage and a worker poped out of nowhere and i started filming him the whole time he walked up to us, he than radioed in to the bull so we rolled out, i still got the tape!

im not one to pay much attention to streaks, but im sure ive seen that before. thats funny what it stands for. the wave and pass shit is the standard for me too though.

streaks are when you use a meanstreak or oil stick to write your name or draw a picture rather than painting the trains. as far as know the workers goes i was brought up in a railroad family, my grandfather was an agent for UP back in the day and my father was a brakeman for one of the lines in my area....i know a whole lot of workers and generally they will tell you anything you want to know about the railroad system. of course i havent ever had a situation where i was i a yard and had to talk to a worker i didnt know, but one time one of my pops friend got me drunk sitting in a boxcar when he got off work.....

a worker once told my friend that a train was about to start moving and it would rip his head off and that he should get off the line. funny thing is, my friend still has his head. i usually just stare at the workers since they are staring at me. i dont know, maybe i feel intimidated.

the engineer gave me a lift numerous time, one time while they were humping cars....its cool as hell...he showed me what the gauges mean inside and showed me how to read them....the first time he gave me a lift i was watching them do yard activity at the back of the yard....they came up when they were done and asked if a friend and i wanted a ride to the office....i got it on video tape and everything....be aware if you get a lift in an engine, make sure the precise details of where it happened and who gave you the ride never get out...it could cost the workers theyre jobs...

:D one other time i was flicking in a siding yard a worker rolled up on me. we talked 4 a bit and asked if i was busy I told him no, then we chilled in the small yard office he hooked me up with route maps and all kinds of goodies, once the brake man showed up I taged along and went on there route rolled 2 the lake and droped off some hoppers and picked up some boxcars,rolled back 2 the yard droped them off went 2 some plant picked up oil takers ,then they got a call they had 2 go 2 the main yard out in cleveland. so they droped me off at my truck,,,,,that sucked cuz there next stop was the ns/conrail inter change----one of my spots!!!=0)

---------yea be safe around yards!!!!-------

----oh yea its true what SECTORTVA said they could lose there jobs if some ass neck see that............:crazy:
