PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Nearly 40 years after a Philadelphia record
company released the O'Jays' hit song "Love Train," there actually was such a thing in the City of Brotherly Love.
One adventurous couple got married on the elevated train as it passed by dozens of love-themed rooftop murals.
Krisy Plourde (KRIS'-ee PLURD') and Tom Golden said their vows aboard the Market-Frankford line on Sunday, just ahead of Valentine's Day.
The subway car was packed with friends and relatives and festooned with white garlands. Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter performed the ceremony.
Other cars on the special El were filled with visitors taking a narrated tour of the "Love Letter" murals, which parallel the train tracks in West Philadelphia.
