Yellow Sub Sails Again

01/25/1999 at 12:00 AM EST

A London-to-Paris "Chunnel" train that zips under the English Channel will be repainted "Yellow Submarine"-style to promote the launch of a digitally-enhanced version of the Beatles' 1968 animated movie. The surviving Beatles -- Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr -- are paying more than $160,000 to transform the Eurostar train, says reports. Hundreds of yards of plastic panels painted with psychedelic cartoons from the movie will be used to remake the train, which will make its first journey Sept. 8, Eurostar said. The movie is to be relaunched about a week earlier in the Beatles' hometown of Liverpool. A remixed version of the "Yellow Submarine" album is also to be released.
