French Train Gets a Makeover Worthy of an Art Museum

Public transport is a great way of allowing people to explore and see famous landmarks, but what if rather than having to go and visit the landmarks they came to you instead? that's the thinking behind France's national state-owned rail service SNCF who have come with a clever idea to bring the famous landmarks to people enjoying their commute.

Working with American manufacturing company 3M they've been busy giving their trains a makeover using a special film (or wrap) printed with famous landmarks and museum artefacts in order to transform the carriages interior. Designs featuring tiled ceilings, mosaic walls, impressionist art and images from the the oldest film company in the world, Cinéma Gaumont, have given the interior an entirely new appearance.

The project which is titled Art In Transit has had a positive impact on the passengers who ride on the trains too and has also helped to deter vandals, making the trains a nicer place to be.
