Full wrap on the 42 Street Shuttle

The train on Track #1 currently is wearing a full wrap inside and out, except for the end bonnets. Click the picture for the full size.

Yeah, I saw the pics on the transit forums a few days ago, and was stunned at the internal wrap. It goes too far overboard.

Here's the tasteful ad, and here's the full ad wrap, and the interior.

The outside isn't too bad, but the interior wrap is too much.
"This is an Raritan Valley express train to Allentown stopping at Newark Penn Station, Westfield, Plainfield, Bridgewater, Somerville, Raritan, High Bridge, Philipsburg, Easton, Bethlehem, and Allentown. Transfer at Newark for service to West Trenton and Lakehurst. Next stop is Newark."

Agree all I will say though is at least the ad has to do with the underground :-D

Well at least it's something different to look at.
"Please do not attempt to board the train until it has arrived in the station. Thank you."

"Use Track 5 for the 5:17 local train to Raritan which has just departed."

I got a 42 St Shuttle train full wrapped with a vacation ad to one of the Caribbean Islands with even a little TV simulating the waves and advertising the beauty of the islands. I also got another full wrap ad for Adelphi University

Do you think wraps could be used to "color" those drab cars? They could style them to have design markings of classic cars and advertise themselves or offer it to customers to use it for their products.

The wraps do offer color and make the cars stand out. Remember it matters to the public, not just railfans.

Must admit, it's COLORFUL! I was in town yesterday, and the 6 train was SWATCH ed.
Very Colorful, and covers graffiti. Hopefully the MTA makes enough money on this advertising campaign to lower the fares! hehehehhaohaohaohaohaohao!
