Indeed they do.

Graffiti is said to cost such a ridiculous amount due to this rule. They take the lost revenue from leaving a train in its depo into account when calculating their figures.


It's a joke, as everyone has said time and time again, running a train with paint on it doesnt endanger lives, doesn't make people feel scared and the train still works perfectly fine.

I think it's because if people seen this all the time, they would think the police and railway companies aren't in control of the situation.

A direct quote from one D.S. Thrush of the British Transport Police:

"Graffiti causes problems with services and substantial costs to rail operators…Trains cost approximately £1,000 a day to lease. If you have to take a train out of service, that's £1,000 you've lost straightaway”

Taken from: http://www.railway-technology.com/features/feature42889/

This proves what I said about lost revenue.

Apology accepted.

this will probably post twice but my internets fucked.
tox09 said "dont they get fined?" you replied "indeed" or whatever, lost of revenue through a train being taken out of service doesnt constitute a fine.

Yes, and I still maintain that’s the case. I didn’t say that quote proved the point about being fined, only about lost revenue.

You pretty much said I didn’t know what I was talking about, hence the smugness on my part upon substantiating one of my claims.

Let's draw a line under this, I'm becoming increasingly aware that arguing makes me look like a dick.

its a quote from a btp officer, so thats not proof ..
we all know they are lying wanks! theres always extra trains sitting in yards, even during rush hour periods, so if that was the case the railway companies are throwing money away daily

We all know it doesn't really cost them more, its just the principal: It cost them £1000 (for talking sake) to lease a train, if they can't use that train they are down £1000.

The practicalities of running a depo won't come into it. these figures are made by accountants and lawyers who deal in raw data.

scotrail can get fined for all sorts of stupid things by the transport authority, getting fined for not having a coprate image on the side of a train is just a piss take, if the ticket conductor doesnt have his/her name badge on they recieve a fine of £1000 i think it was.

Stencilling is just cheating.



izit FUCK
its just a different type of talent
its much more premeditated
it takes alot of thought
thats thinkin it off your own head mind you
usin computer programs to make stencils is not as skilled
but still its not cheating !!

the good thing about stenciling is taht theres less chance of gettin caught cos the hard part is done in ur house n its a two second job to get it on a wall


Edit: Accidentally replied to a really old post because my page sort is in reverse.

They don't need to use EVERY train, that would mean overcrowding the tracks, delays and then people complaining.

Which could result in losing service and money.

It's a vicious circle, it really is.

Be grateful, cause if it had happened everytime it was said, you would be in a pretty bad way.
