Every Sunday up to December 30th, subway goers riding on the M line between Queens Plaza and 2nd Ave have a chance to catch a ride on a vintage subway car called the “Nostalgia Shoppers’ Special Train”. The cars, known as R1/9 Subway cars, are green, date back to the 1930s and give New Yorkers and tourists, alike, a glimpse into NYC’s past.
According to the MTA’s website:
Departures from 2nd Avenue are at
10:01 AM, 11:30 AM, 1:01 PM, 2:30 PM, and 4:01 PM.
Departures from Queens Plaza are at
