X-Men takeover at Euston as Wolverhampton becomes Wolverine
Euston travellers were more than a little surprised to see the destination Wolverine instead of Wolverhampton on the departures board.
To the delight of passengers and just for today, Wolverhampton is Wolverine, a superhero from the film X-Men.
All 65 signs at the station have been changed to mark the release of the latest movie in the franchise- Days of Future Past.
And Instead of it usual station stops, the 12.35 service dropped off and collected passengers at Beast, Xavier and Storm.
Notices also warned travellers to be wary of mutants on trains.
The takeover seemed to tickle passengers. Posting one of many pictures, Twitter user Flossie Jewellery said: “Well this made me chuckle this morning!”.
Virgin Trains have teamed up with 20th Century Fox to mark the launch.
Yesterday the movie’s stars Hugh Jackman and James McAvoy helped Virgin Trains name its exclusive 11-carriage Pendolino at London Euston station.
After the train was officially named by two of the film’s most iconic characters, Professor Xavier and Wolverine, guests boarded for its inaugural journey from London Euston to Birmingham International, enjoying first class service all the way. The newly refurbished train, which took 160 hours to wrap in 549m2 of film, will showcase its X-MEN livery to passengers up and down the country until July.
