42nd St, Times Square and Grand Central subway stations
New York City, New York

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.
