    i didnt think of that but i dont believe it is because if you look at the first one on the right bar their is a wood plank or something the guy had to paint over which would cause that yellow line to have some form of shadow.

    Just standard reflective tape. Most cars, even old ones have them, most often in a round circular form however after years of use without washing most are covered in dirt and grime. Cars with the new stuff have most likely been serviced recently hence tape applied while there.

    personally i think autoracks are overrated. i'd rather paint a hopper any day of the week.

    If you are benching you basically want to see box's, things you don't want to see

    1) Intermodals
    2) tanker trains
    3) hoppers
    4) autorack trains ( at least 1 of 4 can be completely clean)

    Nothing more dissapointing than catching only one train in an afternoon and its all one of those first three types of cars.

    honestly if you had a choice of a nice flat serface or won of those
    there is a reason people rarely paint them
    why start now

    ha i wrote this for one of my classes i thaught this was relevant its called "13 O'Clock"

    There are times at night
    when i cant sleep.
    when everything is quiet
    a creepy silence.

    when i analyze
    all the sensless thaughts.

    a horn blows far off
    it calms me.
    it sooths me
    as an infant,
    an infant being lulled
    to sleep
    every night
    by my mother.

    the wheels were
    the pulse
    that gave the night character.
    a stampeed
    of iron horses
    romping
    somewhere near,
    a huge starving belly,
    rolling thunder.

    TRUTH,
    i always felt compforted
    by
    these
    Abstract songs.

    it really does
    cool my blood.
    i can never stop
    thinking at night.
    my thaughts run on
    like a sixth graders
    essay,an essay
    without
    punctuation,
    spaces.

    TRIANS pause
    the insanity,
    they help me sleep.
