As reported last week, a “mocked up” Metro rail vehicle with new styling and graphics designed by Metro Creative Services is rolling through the Blue and Expo Line this week to test its performance. Car 148 left the Blue Line yard on its maiden voyage this afternoon. Have you seen it?
On display are bold reflective yellow markings and white super-graphics overlaid onto painted cool greys intended to create a safer and more attractive vehicle.
The distinctive styling and graphics have been applied to a Nippon Sharyo P2020 car (used on the Blue and Expo Lines), but are intended for the entire rail fleet. Slight variations and tweaks may occur until the styling is perfected and agreed to by Metro department stakeholders for both operational maintenance and aesthetics.
