Great work on the artist's side. Thanks for sharing this photo. My favorite bridge in my shooting area has nothing but vulgar banter back and forth between neighboring high school.

In response to christophersmuller, after I posted this I found a photo of the same bridge taken by Steven M. Welch on April 5, 2008. He was able to catch a BNSF unit crossing over the bridge and the very same artwork was on the wall. In today's age, it is amazing that this mural could have lasted a whole year without the taggers destroying it. When I started working for the S.P. in 1965, most of the graffitti we saw were small hobo signs written with white chalk on freight cars. Now, for the most part, the only freight trains that aren't tagged with spray paint are stack trains. The taggers even decorate boulders and trees in Yosemite.
