PLEASE NOTE: Due to construction, this trip will now depart from the 2nd Avenue station on the F Line on the Lower East Side in Manhattan.

On Saturday, we will meet on the Uptown/Queens-bound F platform of the 2nd Avenue station on the Lower East Side in Manhattan. The station is located at Houston Street and Second Avenue. Please refer to this map for directions, and don’t forget to check The Weekender for any service changes that may affect your trip! Check-in will close at 5:15 pm to ensure an on-time departure. If you miss the train, please feel free to proceed to the Transit Museum in Brooklyn for admission to the party at the museum once the train arrives around 6:30 pm.

This event is sold out and no tickets will be sold on the platform or at the museum.

Hop on board our Nostalgia Swing Train for a special express ride to the Transit Museum in Downtown Brooklyn! Then, triple-step your way through our 1936 decommissioned subway station with live jazz bands, the hottest swing dancing, and the slickest vintage outfits – an after-hours boogie for the ages! Ticket price includes a one-way ride on the Nostalgia Swing Train, and admission to the party at the Museum.


Can’t make the party? Enjoy Holiday Rides on our vintage fleet of 1930s R1-9 cars every Sunday between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Eve, and check out our collection of vintage train cars at the Museum year-round!
