This past week, METRO unveiled a new 2011 MLB All Star Game wrap on one of their trains. Justin Upton and Luis Gonzalez were on hand to introduce the new look for the upcoming All Star Game. The train is wrapped on the outside and is also the first train to have graphics on the interior ceiling of the light rail cars.
Justin Upton and Luis Gonzalez love the train! 🙂

In the videos below, the Diamondback’s, Major League Baseball and METRO light rail are encouraging fans to use our trains during the 2011 MLB All Star Game festivities.
“I really encourage everyone to use METRO light rail during this event.”
METRO thanks MLB and says: "METRO is more than just this train, METRO is about getting people around town and we’re going to do a lot of that over the All Star weekend." Obviously, the trains will be taking people to and from their hotels near the light rail line, to places to grab some food or a beer along the line and to many of the sites and attractions that are anxiously awaiting some of the dollars that will be spent during the All Star game festivities.
Remember, Rail Life has a Phoenix Light Rail Group on Flickr. Basically, we want to share some of our pictures from the community and allow people to add their pics (or videos), as well. These can be light rail related, but we also want pics or videos of your favorite spot, restaurant, sports team, community, event etc.
