Bombardier Tube Ad

Has anyone seen ads for err... "brands" of trains before? I think this is the first ad I've seen on the London Underground for a train manufacturer.

Ad for Bombardier Trains

Bombardier are clearly so proud of their new "fast, efficient & eco friendly trains" that they're running advertisements for them on the system.

Perhaps a condition of getting the contract from TfL to supply the S Stock trains was to run ads putting across Bombardier's by-line of "the evolution of mobility".

Although it's not as if we have a choice of which trains we take when we're on the London Underground. But, maybe I'm wrong. Perhaps there are some people who wait around at platforms until a shiny new train comes along. If you've a bit of time to spare maybe it is worth getting on a nice air conditioned eco friendly train!
