Sleepy morning commuters may find themselves a bit confounded if they happen to step onto Regional Rail car 702. PlanPhilly.com reports that thanks to a partnership between SEPTA and The National Constitution Center, one of the Silverliner V cars has received some interesting upgrades.
The car’s interior has been wrapped in a deep red, giving the common commuter train the feel of a 1920s speakeasy with antique-looking photos, lamps, Prohibition-era characters, a “bar” complete with a 3D image of a bartender, and windows enhanced to look like liquor cabinets.
Regional Rail car 702 has been transformed into the Prohibition-themed “Speakeasy Silverliner” to help promote The National Constitution Center’s latest exhibit American Spirits: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition.
The “Speakeasy Silverliner” will run regular regional rail service through April 28.
