‘It’s pretty tragic that there’s no second-hand market value as some vehicles might be 20 years-old but they only have only 40,000 miles on the clock.

Montreal’s Old Metro cars becoming creative hubs in ambitious reuse project – Montreal Times 

Old Montreal Metro cars at Lachine canal

Due to undergo its pilot phase (F-MR Station), this summer will see four subway cars undergo a makeover, after which they will hold a design showcase, a recording studio, an art gallery, and a snack bar. The Station will be based near southwest Montreal’s Lachine Canal National Historic Site. The project’s next phase, which isn’t expected to open until 2020, will see twice the amount of cars transformed into a multi-level space that will host local events, as well as showcase food vendors and local artists.
