Last night the Producers Guild of America (PGA) gave out awards for achievement in films and television released in 2011. The big winner was The Artist, which took home the Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures. As the winner of this award takes the Best Picture Oscar three times out of four, any betting on the top Oscar honor is pretty much over at this point.

Though the small screen retains an unfair reputation as a lesser medium — think of all the snobby types who’ll brag about not owning a television, but would never be so dismissive about books or movies — the truth is that the medium varies as much as any other.

It can be really, really difficult to make a TV poster stand out during the fall season, especially in an area as littered with advertising as New York. So props to whatever genius thought up HBO’s newest marketing gimmick: an authentic, operational vintage train from the ’20s promoting the second season of Boardwalk Empire. Part of the show’s great appeal is its exquisite attention to period-appropriate detail, so an actual old-school train seems like a perfect way to remind people of the show’s return September 25.

In fact, it’s such a cool idea that I’m going to go ahead and pretend not to notice that Boardwalk Empire actually takes place in New Jersey, not New York, which is totally not the same thing goddamnit. Check out images and video after the jump.
