I've seen Graffitied cars with reflectors on them.All the RR does is paint tiny little rectangles with the cars color of paint and then apply them.Its hard to see them during the day but you still can see them fine at night.

Most Graffitit artists paint around train reporting marks and reflectors knowing that their art will be painted over later by the railroad if they didn't.
