Lets start with the legal stuff. A) Yes I was tresspassing. No I'm not concerned. Please do not lecture me. B) No I do not condone spray painting other people's belongings. Yes I do think it's interesting and artistic. On to the graffiti! Quite some time ago (over two years ago, according to my notes) I was out driving the country side and took these pictures of 'railroad graffiti' on the Little Rock and Western. The LRW runs from the Union Pacific North Little Rock engine maintenance facility out west about 78 miles to Danville. Their headquarters is in Perry, about the midpoint of the line. I recently read they use two Alco C-420s and two GP9s and make one run from the HQ each direction five days a week hauling various raw goods including pulp, grain, limestone, and paper. These photographs are from a small siding / yard about half way between Perry and Little Rock. According to Google Maps the area is "Moonie Springs", though I've never heard that name before. I have no idea what this says, but I'm sure it's frustrating that it covers up the car's identification. What in God's name is that? This is a strange looking fish, and the coloring almost makes it look as if they were trying to cover something else up. I can't tell what this one says either, but it's pretty elaborate. I wonder if they avoided the "01 16" or if that was repainted by the RR. Again, no idea what it says. "OPiATe*" ??? Simple. Doesn't appear to be too intrusive, though it does cover all the car's dimensions. I don't think this is trying to say anything at all, in words. And I'd almost go so far as to say they were trying to not cover up any RR informations. Weird though. Very 'sci-fi'. Classic graffiti bubble letters. I like the blue, and the interior shadowing. I think this person was spazming with a spray paint can in each hand. Clearly the RR remarked the car before and after this graffiti was done. Nice ... skull ... This artist plays lots of Mario Brothers, me thinks. "Daytime GTV!", yay! What does that mean!? Rather elaborate marblized lettering. Simple initials. I like the signature in the upper left. I also find "lies" on the bottom funny. Lies? What lies? Everything is a lie? Or just this box car? More. This one has lots of names on it. I don't think I'd put my name on graffiti. This person's skill is "big". Quality is not in their ability Does this say 'SALE' ? Whatever it says, it's really damn elaborate. And for some reason two years ago when I took these pictures I decided to make a closeup of this. If you see something worth looking at, let me know. Perhaps it's just the detail. This I actually like quite a lot. It's simple, non-intrusive, and mildly artistic. It had also been there 8 years when I took the picture, 10 if it's still there now. I liked the way this person flaired the lines upward. And it's also non-intrusive. I'm going to make a seperate post of the other things I took pictures of that day.
