Don’t believe the hype, says Heat TCI. Most writers don’t paint freights, and don’t care – or know – about those who do.

What surprises me about freight train graffiti is just how unpopular it is within the graffiti community. To prove this, you can go to 12ozprophet.com and compare the number of active users in the “Metal Heads” (freight) forum to the number of active users in the “Brick Slayers” (walls) forum, you will always find only about 10 percent of the active users are in the “metal heads” forum. And just the other day I saw a poll on The Infamous’ website asking writers what they paint. One of the answers was “freights only,” to which a mere 7 percent of the writers answered, so again we are talking about only 7 to 10 percent of writers focusing on freights. Getting away from polls and data from websites, I’ve found the same to be true based on personal experience.
