The QLine sports a nifty wrap before it debuts May 12



With the grand opening of the QLine just a couple days away, the finishing touches on the streetcar are finally starting to take shape, and that includes a fancy and colorful wrap that covers the train.

Reddit user aspera_non_spernit posted a video from YouTube showing the QLine on a test run sporting the wrap. The sides of the QLine show colorful illustrations of Detroit landmarks like the Ren Cen and Comerica Park.

No word from the M1-Rail if these wraps will change over time, or if ads will be placed on them. MT reached out for a comment and we will update this post when we hear back.
