Matt Grigsby
Matt Grigsby was born and raised in Redding but has often felt he should have been born in Italy. By day he's a computer analyst toiling for the public good and by night he searches airline websites for great travel deals. His interests include books, movies, prowling thrift shops for treasure and tricking his friends into cooking for him. One day he hopes to complete his quest in finding the best gelato shop in Italy.

    Well, Matt. . . now you've gone and done it. Now I can't watch a freight train go by now without looking at what I used to think of as grafitti and thinking, "Now there's a pretty (striking, artistic) one. I hope Matt sees that one. In fact, I did see the one in your top photo as it came around the curve by WinnRiver . .. . . and i tho't of you!!!

      It’s funny but I never really looked at them as anything other than an eyesore until the day I noticed one of the boxcars was beautiful. I suddenly realized LOTS of them were beautiful and now it’s all I see when a train passes.

      And I love that you saw the same train I did! By the time it reached you in south Redding I had already snapped it.
