Elm Street Underpass

I love train graffiti, especially the type painted in letters so fat that I fail to map each to the right letter of the alphabet until it has rolled away. Watching a train pass is sometimes like listening to the tones of a foreign language I wish I knew but do not, and in my unknowing, the conversation sounds more like music than dialogue.

Train Graffiti

Lots of trains pass through my city of Lima, Ohio, so I see plenty of train graffiti whenever I’m delayed by a train crossing. Today I spotted something I hadn’t seen before: a portrait on a box car.
