The Transit Museum’s vintage train cars are headed on a special trip to the end of the line – the BMT Brighton line, that is! Ride the rails in historic style on Saturday, September 9th and Sunday, September 10th, by hopping on and off a selection of the Transit Museum’s vintage fleet at the Brighton Beach station B/Q platforms and Kings Highway Manhattan-bound B/Q platform. Admission is FREE with a MetroCard swipe or OMNY tap!


Please Note: The trains will run continuously from Brighton Beach to Kings Highway and back. Passengers may only board at Brighton Beach and Kings Highway. All boarding and exiting trains at Brighton Beach will take place on the interior two platforms. All boarding and exiting trains at Kings Highway will be on the Manhattan-bound platform. Each trip will be approximately 10 minutes and riders can expect wait times between rides.


Parade of Trains will include a number of train cars from our collection, including the R-1/9, BMT Standard, and BU Gate Cars.


Accessibility: Kings Highway is an ADA-accessible station with an elevator to the Manhattan-bound platform located on the south side of Kings Highway, west of 16th Street. Please check the MYmta app and visit the MTA's Elevator and Escalator Status page before you travel for real-time elevator status information. The elevator for Kings Highway station is located between 15th Street and 16th Street. There is no elevator at the Brighton Beach station. Most but not all of the vintage train cars are wheelchair accessible. The BU Gate Cars, for example, have a significant step up from the platform.


Vintage equipment subject to change.
