MASKED graffiti louts who endangered the lives of drivers and passengers on Sydney trains by tampering with signals have been painted into a corner after cops smashed their gang.
The inner-workings of the reckless Few Kewl CatS gang, which has cost taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars, can now be revealed after three members were jailed.
In one shocking assault the group sprayed paint at the driver of a moving train at Homebush through the open door of his compartment.

Police said the gang interfered with trains during a period of “heightened national security”.And in April last year a train was brought to a screeching halt between North Strathfield and Strathfield stations by debris the idiots laid on the tracks.
Police said the gang interfered with trains during a period of “heightened national security”, gaining a following by uploading videos and photos to social media of them defacing carriages and walls.
The morons even featured in a semi-professionally produced DVD — E/S East Sider’s.
The gang show off their “work” on social media.Next Wednesday, Nathan Calvin Ventura, 22, who sprayed his tag “IVORY” and “FKCS” on the side of countless trains, will be sentenced for 52 graffiti-related offences.
Three other gang members — Martin Roser, 28, James Knight, 28, and Dylan Heasman, 23, have all been sentenced to between three and nine months’ jail.
Jarrod Locke, 27, was given a 12-month intensive corrections order.
Police Minister Troy Grant applauded the dismantling of the gang ahead of the annual Graffiti Removal Day on Sunday, October 29.
“Vandals are on notice that police, businesses and the community won’t tolerate the wanton destruction of private and public property,” he said.

Last year volunteers removed 20,600sqm of graffiti from more than 460 sites across the state, saving the government and private property owners an estimated $1.4 million.
