WAIPAHU, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The large, elaborate graffiti that was discovered on a $2M rail car last week has been removed.

HART says the vandals only used paint, which was removed using a citrus-based solvent.

HART Executive Director and CEO Dan Grabauskas says rail staffers did all the work, which means it may not actually cost extra money to fix the damage.

"So we had four people working basically for two and-a-half days to clean it up, and that's all it took," Grabauskas said. "So I'm not even sure if there's going to be an insurance claim at this point. It really was just a labor of those four individuals and three gallons of solvent." 

Meanwhile, Grabauskas also says security around the rail yard has been ramped up.

There's now more patrols inside and outside the building where the rail cars are stored. Surveillance cameras will also be going up within the next week.
