Disappointed to see how much graffiti there is on freight stock over here, long block trains of vans with 99% of the vehicles seriously badly tagged. Passenger stock isn't too bad, a few vehicles have been tagged.

It's a shame there isn't another outlet for these taggers because from what I've seen some of them are really talented--but what a mess!

Yes there are some talented artists but even when they provide walls for it the inane taggers just ignore them and tag everything. We are having an issue with them at work overnight they are tagging the units berthed in the down sidings so we put up cameras. They found one and then wrote F*** BTP ( British Transport Police) all over the unit. Unfortunately so far no faces captured and it's too expensive to stake them out. Costs thousands as the unit is taken out of service immediately so their tags don't get exposure and create more incentive. While it's being cleaned it's not earning.
