With the Yankees wild-card game happening on Wednesday, October 3, the New York Transit Museum is putting one of New York’s vintage trains back on the tracks to get you there—their “Nostalgia Special.”
For just the cost of a typical ride with your MetroCard ($2.75), you can head to the game in a nostalgic subway car that dates back to 1917. The 100-year-old Lo-V train car will run from Grand Central to Yankee Stadium.
The 1917 Lo-V features old ceiling fans (pre-subway air conditioning days, obviously), rattan seats, and drop-sash windows. The train’s service was discontinued in the 1960’s, but hits the tracks for the Yankees’ biggest game of the season each year.
It is expected to arrive at the stadium 35 minutes after departing from Grand Central, and will leave the station at 7 p.m. running non-stop on the Lexington Avenue line of the 4,5, and 6 trains.
