That Hitler train is so hardcore, though it is offensive to others!

Many train enthusiast discussion boards already have rules in place banning the posting of pictures of tagged trains for this very reason. Thank you!
I have one better suggestion: use dice to conceal, like for pornography. It would make better effect...maybe...

Graffiti on Sydney's CityRail network is still an ongoing problem, although it is nowhere near as bad as it used to be. It is relatively rare these days to see any train with any marking other than a small tag or scribble on the exterior actually in revenue service, but in the late 1980s and 1990s, graffiti was rampant on the network and it wasn't uncommon for trains to be completely caked in graffiti.

Interior graffiti is still sadly a large problem on all modes of public transport, particularly window etching. Most train windows have some tag scratched into them.

Some Sydney graffiti:

Due to the problem of graffiti, some Sydney bus seats have fabric like this in order to deter it:

Sydney's public transit looks third world in those pics. Looks like an NYC subway car from the 80's.

To people who are for graffiti on public transportation, bring you cars over here, I'll spray paint it all over.... then I'll ask if it still looks good to you.

Damaging public transportation cost money to company, which will pass a buck to customers in order to offset the cost of repairs. Lets me do that shit to your property and see if it's right or not....

I still don't get the purpose behind this. People who are proponents of graffiti often use the "they just want to be known" argument. You can't even read that $hit. It just makes everything look $hitty for no reason.

There already is a negative stigma associated with public transportation. I would love to ride in a clean, stylish new bus that doesn't have some idiot's idiotic gangster name all over it.

Heh, thanks, that's the look I was going for when I took the photo (2nd one is mine)

They are infact from the 80s, they've been slowly phased out over the years with newer models but they're still around. Worst on summer days.

I'm a fan of graffiti, but not texta tagging or scrappy work. In the 80s it had it's whole culture going, which it still does but these days it's just dirty Lads Ironic description of them. They do a lot of the yuck texta ones, much like in my picture. They have no class or style. Window etching is the worst.

There are some beautiful graffiti works of art. But in my opinion, people that deface public or private property should be locked up for a few years.

In the UK you pretty much never ever see any graffiti on trains! Maybe some very minor tagging but thats about it. They other day when I went into work the train I used had one of its coaches gratified outside, but that was the first time I have ever seen it on the line in my 22 years of life.

I know in the 90s London Underground has quite a bit, particularly on its older and unpainted trains. Pretty much all UK trains have bright liverys which put people off grafiti as it doesn't show up as well as a silver train...

An urban train service like this in most places would have graffiti but not in London

It's not really an issue here, as it tends to be buffed off trains as soon as it's spotted in an attempt to curb graffiti (i.e. what's the point if it's going to be gone by sun rise)

Here's a video made by some of the graffers

Naw, graffiti happens a hell of a lot in London, but like in the post above, they buff it off super quick, and as well as that, CCTV, CCTV everywhere. Every rail yard in the Capital has cameras everywhere. (Kinda fitting in with the UK's surveillance culture)

BUnch of criminal losers who should be chased with teaser and what else out of subway property.

I don't understand why they don't put more security around tunnels or else. Especially in subways where you don't have many points of entry.... or depots, where high-voltage electric fence and razor-wire can deter these thugs.

In Hong Kong I saw there was a 5000 HKD fine for graffiti. That seemed to work.

Virtually nonexistent on Washington DC's metro system (although there is some on private buildings and bridges along the right of way). I'm very proud of that.

Indeed, you've every reason to be proud! The Washington Metro really is fantastic model of a very clean & well run subway with very little graffti, crime, or other annoyances. Kudos to WMATA management & staff & particularly the metro riders of the Washington, Virginia, Maryland region!
