For all you train enthusiasts and connoisseurs, the new DVD, Bench Warrant 2 might be of interest to you. Here is the trailer for their second installment, accompanied with the odd soundtrack choice of Nine Inch Nails? The aerial footage looks pretty good.

Our friend Swampy has been off the radar, something he is accustomed to doing and he does it very well. Where has he exactly been for the last year or even more? Only he knows and those who travel with him, but its probably somewhere you haven’t been. Maybe this new video he released will give some incite into his recent activities.

In Switzerland, the KCBR crew appears to be having all the fun. Are they filling eggs full of paint and throwing them at passenger trains in the daytime? Yep. Did they just paint a large chrome penis on the engine of a passenger train? For sure. What about riding the outside of the train in the daytime, getting off, painting the train and then confronting the conductor inside the car all while wearing GoPro cameras? The end is amazing and we suggest you take the time to watch. Plus, there’s a ridiculous soundtrack and plenty of humor sprinkled throughout.

The mantra for multi-media artist Doug Aitken's Station to Station project is simple: "In September 2013, a train will travel from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Activating the cultural landscape, Station to Station will connect artists, musicians and creative pioneers...". A moving public art, installation, gallery, and sculpture moving across the US, in other words. Okay, maybe this isn't so simple.

Still in production, “Year- Round Metal Enjoyment” is a documentary about New England, vandalism, and an obsession with trains. The video follows several freight train graffiti artists into a world of steel and spray while exploring the Northeast's many ties to the railroad earth. With over a year and a half of shooting (and rising), more than a dozen interviews from some of the area's most notorious artists, as well as railfans and workers, Mint Films gives an in-depth look into this obscure and elusive world.
