Writing/Aerosol Art on trains has a history that predates the modern writing by nearly a century.
Following the Civil War, veterans returning to their homes by rail, sometimes and often
wrote their names and the names of fellow fallen soldiers on the sides of rail road cars.
After the stock market crash of 1929 which we can relate to now more then ever thousands of Amerikkkan’s became what later would be called Hobos or Tramps.
From very early, marking rail cars with a personalized handle was synonomous amongst the hobo culture.
In the mid 1960’s a similiar brand of writing began to appear on public transit vehicles in the cities of Philadelphia and New York. Writing/Aerosol Art on the Subway and rail road are the foundation of the entire aerosol art culture. For this reason Aerosol Art on trains will always have a special place in the hearts and minds of writers and enthusiasts alike.
