Unfortunately, graffiti is an all to common "thing" on the railroads, whether it is on rolling stock, bridges, walls, building, yadda, yadda, yadda.....

Here are pictures of grafitti, some of which I took, others come from Google Streetview.

On Rolling Stock

















On Buildings

This set of screenshots comes from Google Streetview in the Atlanta area, where they filmed an episode or two of The Walking Dead.
At the junction of Windsor St SW and Love St SW, timeline March 2016.
GPS Coordinates: 33.73425, -84.39836





Same location as above, date: November 2017.




Same location as above, date: October 2019.




And finally, in March 2022:


Note to self: When you're in Streetview, you can click on the timeline in the upper left hand box on the screen, and choose a year,
But they have now made a NON-IMPROVEMENT by deleting the "X" to get rid of the timeline box, shame on Google :-) :

On Bridges and Overpasses


I love trains, and I love signals.  I am not an expert.

Please Note:  Since the main focus of my two websites is railroad signals, the railfan guides are oriented towards the signal fan being able to locate them.  For those of you into the modeling aspect of our hobby, my indexa page has a list of almost everything railroad oriented I can think of to provide you with at least a few pictures to help you detail your pike.

If this is a railfan page, every effort has been made to make sure that the information contained on this map and in this railfan guide is correct.  Once in a while, an error may creep in :-)

My philosophy: Pictures and maps are worth a thousand words, especially for railfanning.  Text descriptions only get you so far, especially if you get lost or disoriented.  Take along good maps.... a GPS is OK to get somewhere, but maps are still better if you get lost!  I belong to AAA, which allows you to get local maps for free when you visit the local branches.  ADC puts out a nice series of county maps for the Washington DC area, but their state maps do not have the railroads on them.  If you can find em, I like the National Geographic map book of the U.S..... good, clear, and concise graphics, and they do a really good job of showing you where tourist type attractions are, although they too lack the railroads.  Other notes about specific areas will show up on that page if known.

Pictures and additional information is always needed if anyone feels inclined to take 'em, send 'em, and share 'em, or if you have something to add or correct.... credit is always given! BE NICE!!! Contact info is here

Beware: If used as a source, ANYTHING from Wikipedia must be treated as being possibly being inaccurate, wrong, or not true.

BTW, floobydust is a term I picked up 30-40 years ago from a National Semiconductor data book, and means miscellaneous and/or other stuff.
