Love Train Tour

Media Title

In 2009, local graffiti/mural artist Steve Powers, along with SEPTA and the Mural Arts program, created his “A Love Letter for You” project on the sides of West Philly buildings along the Market-Frankford El line, a series of murals that tell the story of a young man sending love notes to a SEPTA cashier. With fun, colorful paintings adorned with phrases like, “If you were here, I’d be home now,” and “Meet me on Fifty-Second if only for Fifty Seconds,” it’s a sweet visual treat for weary commuters, and since spring of 2010, has been the attraction of Love Train, an annual Valentine’s Day ride on trains adorned with hearts and filled with lovers of both romance and art. Since 2011’s event featured an actual on-the-El wedding officiated by Mayor Nutter, this year’s ante has been upped: It’s a singles event. So, come aboard, and you may meet the lucky fool who’ll be singing you O’Jays ballads all year long. The festivities end back at SEPTA’s headquarters, where food, drinks, music and special Valentine’s Day giveaways are on tap. —Randy LoBasso
