Railroad Graffiti

The World's Heaviest Art Gallery
Coming Soon to a RR Crossing Near You

Photos by John Troesser
Like the man once said about Texas weather: There isn't much you can do about it, so you might as well enjoy it.

While we at Texas Escapes do not condone or encourage the painting of trains, we have to acknowledge that there is some talent at work in America's railroad frieght yards.

The following gallery is a collection of tags, artwork and (somewhat) mysterious statements found on various parked trains in central Texas in the Spring of 2007.
