New York's Holiday Nostalgia Trains

Every year, New York City takes some restored antique trains out of the transit museum and puts them into service for a look back at the history of the Metro. This year, eight vintage trains will be running on Sundays from November 26 to December 24, for the same price as regular subway rides. These subway cars were built in the 1930s through the '70s, and have been restored complete with ceiling fans, vintage maps, and advertisements from back in the day. Subway riders get into the spirit and show up in period clothing, and often are willing to pose for pictures with the trains and riders.
