NEW YORK (AP) — The literary quotations that filled New York City’s subways for two years are being replaced with a promotional campaign.

The program was called Train of Thought. It offered quotations by poets, historians, philosophers and scientists.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority says it doesn’t have room for both the quotations and its messages about improvements to the system.

Train of Thought had replaced another program called Poetry in Motion. That ran in the subway system for eight years.
