These arty railcars were in the lot behind the

Old Pueblo Trolley museum.
250 E. 36th Street, Tucson, AZ
Just walk past the building on 36th.

I’m hoping when I go back to the museum, they’ll let me in the back storage yard to see the ones I can’t get to.  I’m also curious about the project that paid for the one mural — if it was part of a larger project in case there are other murals.  We’ll see.

These were the first one’s I saw lost on 36th.

Unlike oil paintings in museums, erosion becomes part of weathered murals
erosion
barbed wires, fences don’t keep folks out.
generally if folks like a street mural, they won’t graffitti spray paint on the image as a sign of respect — but blank spaces nearby are fair game.

Darn, just realized I didn’t have a long shot of the whole second mural.  Also there was another mural back there I couldn’t get a shot of.

Then I saw this one.  The two murals are at 90 degrees to each other. This one was commissioned.

I counldn’t read the orange/cream letters although it’s obviously a word(s)
Bridge goes to a temple

Between the signature on the left of this mural and this “thank you” on the right is why I figure it’s commissioned. I figure those groups contributed to a project grant.
