There's a big difference between stealing stuff from a vault and going into
a building that is unused, perhaps unlocked (in the case of the one I went
into it was unlocked for over a year and crews were throwing trash in it..
perhaps inhope someone would torch it and solve the problem) and removing
what is essentially trash in the railroad's eye.    If you know enough RR
people, sometimes you get invited to take the stuff...   that's how I ended
up with a number board.   Plus when you can go into the same place in broad
daylight 5 times, once immeadeatly after about 4 cop cars left the yard
parking lot, and no one says anything, I don't think there is much to worry
about from that angle.   The thing to be careful of though is not to run
into the bums and junkies and people like that...  which is where daylight
is helpful to some extent.  Analyze the situation carefully...   the
recently torn down Erie Frieght house in Binghamton I wouldn't go into
because it was in the middle of town and with abandoned burned out cars
sitting by it for a while...  didnt exactly give me the warm fuzzies.  and
there was all kinds of crap in there.. Caboose Lanterns and papers and
signs and who knows what else.

	If anything I was cleaning up trash that would have to be disposed of
anyways, stuff that had lain around since 1983...    hell I probably could
have snatched some of the lockers if I had had a truck!
