almost daily since 1999


Buses and subways get wrapped with ads, now it’s Amtrak’s turn. The Acela Express will feature an ad for the History Channel’s “1968 with Tom Brokaw” special. Individual cars and locomotives have been covered in ads before, but this one’s the entire train, 2 locomotives and 6 cars, covered in vinyl advertising. Amtrak does have to be careful with the type of advertising it will accept given that it is federally subsidized, however this fits into their goal of finding creative revenue sources.
