Vintage NYC Subway Cars in operation for the Holiday season

Jump to last reply

The MTA is once again operating vintage subway cars on Sundays for the rest of 2012.

It’s back by popular demand! Subway customers can once again take a ride back in time between Queens and Lower Manhattan along the M Subway Line line through the holiday season.

The Holiday Nostalgia Train is made up of subway cars in service from 1932 until 1977. Ceiling fans, padded seats and incandescent light bulbs were state-of-the-art when these cars were first placed in service.

Many New Yorkers bear fond memories of the trains, which served the lettered lines throughout the system. However, with the cars having been out of service for more than 30 years, many New Yorkers have never experienced the charm of wicker seats and ceiling fans. The Holiday Train will run starting this Sunday and will run on all Sundays between Thanksgiving and New Year’s (Nov. 25, December 2, 9, 16, 23 and 30).

The first trip starts out of Second Avenue at 10:01 a.m. with the last trip leaving Queens Plaza at 4:44 p.m. making all M Subway Line line stops in between. The complete schedule as follows:

Leaving 2nd Ave.

Leaving Queens Plaza

When the train leaves 2nd Avenue (UPTOWN platform on the F line), it will stop at:
Broadway/Lafayette - 2 minutes later
West 4th St - 4 minutes later
14th St - 6 minutes later
23rd St - 8 minutes later
34th St - 9 minutes later
42nd St - 10 minutes later
47th-50th Sts - 12 minutes later
53rd St/5th Av - 14 minutes later]
53rd St/Lexington Av - 15 minutes
23rd St/Court Sq - 18 minutes later
Queens Plaza (Last stop) 20 minutes later

When the train leaves Queens Plaza (DOWNTOWN platform on the E line) it will stop at:
23rd St/Court Sq - 2 minutes later
53rd St/Lexington Av - 4 minutes later
53rd St/5th Av - 5 minutes later
47th-50th Sts - 8 minutes later
42nd St - 9 minutes later
34th St - 11 minutes later
23rd St - 12 minutes later
14th St - 14 minutes later
West 4th St - 16 minutes later
Broadway/Lafayette - 18 minutes later
2nd Av (last stop) - 20 minutes later

The above travel/stopping times are approximate and may vary slightly depending on other train service on the lines and passenger volume.

There is no charge to ride this train other than the initial fare to enter the subway.
