First, last, only word on this... Fucking shit is lame... Ten years ago they contacted me about distributing their DVDs on our hobo film fest tours... Being overly enthusiastic about helping other train nerds rep their thing and having a good working relationship with Benchwarmers and The Lines Toughest, I said yes... Never received the DVDs and they never went on tour with us... Shit kinda fell off my peripheral radar until a couple years ago when I started seeing hella fan boys repping their gear and tons of bench bums and railroad workers pushing thier set... Why...? You got a free t-shirt and sticker pack and now wantonly help them sell "premiere lifestyle gear"...? LOL... This shit is simply cashing in on this new culture of internet, keyboard jockey, fan boy cash opportunities... Don't ride trains, no problem... Don't work for the railroad, no problem... Just fucking hang out shooting garbage fan photos through a fence at a hundred yards, we got you... So stupid... What makes it all worse is that people that I respect and admire and that have put in their time on the rails are continually pushing this crap and repping their set, helping them just sell more rail culture gear, bulking up their bank account, while they get nothing in return except some insta fame... So fucking gross... I'm just waiting for them to start producing "authentic, track sourced, hobo bottles" for all the critical bottle trade traffic going down with fans and benchers that don't have a real moniker and are just faming off everyone elses hard work and dedication to the game... Ugh, sigh, yawn... Sorry if this bums any of you out... You're welcome to unfollow me now... But the real sees the real and this shit is phony as fuck... Like how many freight trains are there in Hawaii...?!
