Well, You Don’t See A Whole Lot Of This Anymore…

A SUPER rare sight, Philly photographer Damon Landry spotted this SEPTA rail train car with an an end to end burner. As Damon explains on his Tumblr, these are usually buffed before the paint even drys! (Suppose the extreme cold this week has slowed down that cleaning process.)

Not for nothing, I think it’d be cool if the city/SEPTA commissioned a handful of rotating graff artists to wrap a few trains every now and then. Or, at the very least, the city had a few freewalls for graff artists to work on.

    This is at Wayne Electric or Roberts Yard, right? Because that’s a retired Silverliner III, and is destined for a scrapper in North Jersey. I’m guessing that, along with the cold, SEPTA decided that this car was close enough to being someone else’s problem that it wasn’t worth the time.

      No it’s far far away somewhere. If it’s on SEPTA’s property, the people that did it were likely shot.

    I do agree that the city should work with artists for some fun & creative! Allowing the art type of drawings as opposed to just the scribbling.

    If you spotted that on the SEPTA system, that’s a felony and those ppl should be in prison, as that is not our property to go on.
