One can only wonder how much this is costing, but the MTA has agreed to allow for the conversion of the Times Square - Grand Central shuttle into the "Middle-Earth Express" for the afternoon. What does this mean? Well, the cars will be outfitted with moss, vines, stones as well as creatures. All this to commemorate the DVD/VHS release of The Two Towers.
