Coaltrain streak under bridge

Street Art // Monday, January 06, 2014
Long before the term “Street art” existed, Coletrain was doodling his archaic bearded characters on trains and occasionally you might find one near the tracks.

New Relish Monikers

Street Art // Friday, May 03, 2013
Why doesn’t Relish draw any female figures on trains? That is a question. We are wondering. This recent update is solely portraits of men from previous time periods in momochrome.

Graffiti // Saturday, February 09, 2013
Smokin Joe started drawing on boxcars in October of 1985 as a way to kill time from working on the railroads as an engineer and has become a recognized name as one of the early pioneers of train monikers. This short video clip catches a rare glimpse at the man behind the moniker.

Street Art // Tuesday, November 27, 2012
Nobody is creating the kind of drawings Deuce 7 is on trains, nobody. If you ever have a chance encounter of seeing one, you will know why we would make such a bold statement. A lot of time is spent on each drawing, it’s apparent. Consider yourself fortunate to catch one in person.

Split Personality by Other

Deuce 7 Character

Street Art // Thursday, July 26, 2012
If you spend any significant amount of time near trains and observe the markings, Deuce 7’s work is sure standout amongst all the scribbles. A few years back, he would draw these unique full figured characters like something out of Tim Burton movie. We don’t see to many of these anymore from him, but they pop up from time to time.
