An extra long and extra heavy QPWRV (Portland & Western RR to Roseville, CA) manifest negotiates the Mott-Azalea siding. At this spot was once a set of crossovers. There’s no trace of the crossovers left.

„Kolej na Ciebie”

foto z dnia 17 września 2016

Mural powstał z inicjatywy i na zbiorowe zamówienie mieszkańców bloku - pracowników kolei i potomków kolejarzy. Numer parowozu - 1313 - jest odwołaniem do numeru rzeczywistej maszyny, którą przed laty prowadził ojciec jednego z lokatorów. Artyści pracowali tylko za koszt farby.

Nowy Sącz, Poland
8 Broniewskiego St.
“It’s Your Turn”
authors: Mariusz “Mgr Mors” Brodowski, Banan, Kifu
realized in the first week of June 2016
taken on 17 September 2016

The mural was a group idea and commission of the house’s dwellers - railway workers and descendants of railway workers. The locomotive’s number - 1313 - is a nod toward the number of a real machine that years ago was operated by one of the residents’ father. The artists agreed to work for nothing but the cost of paint.

The title is a pun. “Kolej” in Polish means “railway”, but also “[someone’s] turn”.
