I ran into a friend at the Prairie Whale who mentioned that the old train carriages parked on the tracks in Housatonic were being dismantled for recycling. Good news, I thought, as that would put an end to the idea that they might be refitted for the new service to New York. I thought I should take some photos for our archives and snapped quite a few, but only noticed this detail in the graffiti when I got home and looked through them. The message is right and maybe we should make this look – and Berks NYC – part of our branding! The full picture is below.
