in my opinion "wrecking" a railcar adds value to my life, my culture and my world, and I honor the people who have the guts to express themselves in this method and medium. It's a great responsibilty to express yourself in these times when individuality is forcefully expunged from our general experiences.
I say keep wrecking, responsibly. I'll keep legitimately photographing it as long as I can.

"He's so prolific in his documentation, so thorough, he's introduced me to a world of writers I never knew existed. I never really knew how bumpin' the freight scene was until I discover Would's photos."

"Keeping benching alive in Illinois! Always new stuff in the stream, and if I ever have problems deciphering something, I can just browse wouldpkr's archives (or he'll just stop by and do it for me).
Great flicks, and a friendly guy to boot."

"wouldpkr has a passion for steel thats rarely seen... i wouldnt be surprised if he were a writer himself hiding behind the thousands of other pieces he has littered on his flickr... his work here is an inspiration for enthusiasts everywhere... someone should publish the boxcar archive... it would put any other books to shame."
