Get a Ride on a Vintage Subway Train This Summer While They’re Back in NYC

Vintage subway trains are just like us in the summer, hitting the beach and soaking in the sun.

This summer, the New York Transit Museum is using some of New York’s old school trains to get people around. Last weekend the trains were located at the Brighton Beach B/Q platforms. One, called the “Train of Many Metals” still had the old ceiling fans (pre-subway air conditioning, obviously) and posters with ads of the time.

The BMT Centennial was also present, and will be taking people on rides to Coney Island on Sunday July 8, between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. There will also be R-1/9 vintage train cars taking people to the Rockaway’s on August 4 from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m.
