The thread on Atlas has me thinking that we haven't had a good graffiti thread lately.  So, post any cool stuff you've found recently.

I cant understand why, but I really like "N for ever" on this railbox.

One more i liked.
Not sure if its a clown or what, along with the weird rust on this 86ft CN box I found it appealing.

Here's a few neat ones I dug out of my collection:





If you're familiar with the old Calvin & Hobbes cartoon, this one put me in mind of one
of the famous "snowmen" series. "Eggplant casserole for dinner tonight?" "Why, yes."


I posted this one a little while back in Proto Photo I think-anyways, a little bit of
"historical" tagging-note the date (5/5/68 I believe-pic taken in Oct. of 1979)

They're not "Crown Victorias"-they're known
as "Police Interceptors"

The mind boggles.

How many cans of spray paint, how many manhours, (just moving the ladders).  Plus masking tape and paper, and I can't figure out what it is supposed to say.  Obvidentaly, it was preplanned, and done by a well trained  ;D crew.

Bob in IDaho, slowly basking in a 1980 in my mind.

A few of my more interesting shots...











And finally, somebody had WAY to much time on their hands...





Note that both of those last two were in the same train...

Hi Tim,

Can't say I'm a graffiti fan (modeling mid-50's), but I like that old baby blue VW in photo #5.

The other day we got a derailment car into Havelock, an aluminum coal gon, that had the ENTIRE side of the car painted with a Killer Whale swimming in the ocean scene.  I imagine it was pretty much a life-size painting.  Very cool.

I'll have to remember to bring my camera and hunt the car down in the yard.
