Nearly a decade after LA Metro rolled out a new livery to all its buses, it appears the Rail fleet will finally be getting the new livery. The prototype Nippon Sharyo P865 pictured below was put into service today on the Blue/Expo line.
If this prototype livery performs as expected, the rest of the fleet will be painted grey. The exception is the stainless steel Breda LRV's will just get new decals and the yellow "sunburst". I also attached the concept design for the Kinkisharyo P3010 LRV's that are currently being built for LA Metro in Palmdale.
At this point it's unknown if the Breda A650 subway cars will just get new decals or will get the full "sunburst" livery (there's fewer cars to hit on a system that's almost entirely underground.)
Nippon Sharyo P865/P2020:
(IMHO... these 23+ year old railcars look really sharp in the new livery.)
