WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- With the introduction of the new M-8 trains to Metro-North's New Haven Line, the popular "Bar Car" has become something fondly remembered but rarely seen, but hope may be on the way, according to USA Today.
Metro-North has hired a consulting company for $1.1 million to design a retrofitted M-8 car that could bring the bar car on the New Haven Line back to life if the price is right, USA Today reported.
Connecticut would pay for the cars since the New Haven Line operates predominantly in the Nutmeg State. The three cars would operate on outgoing trains from Grand Central terminal. Two of the cars wouldn't stop until Stamford and the third would only make stops in Rye and Port Chester before entering Connecticut, the USA Today said.
For now, Metro-North commuters will have to continue buying their spirits from the platform kiosks at the station.
