Metro-North is celebrating its anniversary with a poster featuring a rehabbed locomotive rambling up the Hudson, the rehabbed Spuyten Duyvil station–the yearly winner of the Metro-North “Hardest Station to Spell” contest–in the background.
“Nocturne” was created by RISD grad Oren Sherman. “I took the train all the way up the Hudson Line to find the perfect view but the station that I loved the most was right in the Bronx,’ he says. ” I set the scene at night and tried to capture the romance and mystery of a train ride.”
Repros of Nocturne will be hung throughout the transit system. You can buy one at the Transit Museum shop or online.
