Yankees Nostalgia Train

MTA New York City Transit is offering the perfect way to get into the spirit of Bronx Bombers post-season play – a ride to Yankee Stadium aboard a vintage 1917 Lo-V train! Swipe your MetroCard or tap in with OMNY at 42nd Street – Grand Central at 7pm on Thursday, October 17th and 4pm on Friday, October 18th, to take a trip back in time on the New York Transit Museum’s vintage Nostalgia Train.

The Nostalgia Train, originally operated by the Interborough Rapid Transit (IRT) system, began service in 1917. The vintage train cars and hundreds of other similar cars served subway customers a few years before the first pitch was thrown at the original Yankee Stadium. With rattan seats, ceiling fans and drop sash windows, the train harkens back to an earlier age of subway travel, and provides a photogenic counterpoint to the new home of the New York Yankees.

The Nostalgia Train is scheduled to leave the uptown 4 train platform of 42nd Street – Grand Central at 7pm on Thursday, October 17th and 4pm on Friday, October 18th. The train will run non-stop on the Lexington Avenue Line, arriving at 161st Street – Yankee Stadium in about 25 minutes. The ride up to the Bronx will get fans to the stadium gates with plenty of time before the first pitch.
