If you’re feeling festive and nostalgic this holiday season, then taking a ride on a vintage train or bus is right up your alley. Celebrate New York City and vintage flair this month at the New York Transit Museum and explore a ride or two. And, if you have folks in town this holiday, this is also a fun little adventure for you all to experience.
For the cost of a MetroCard swipe, you can take a whirl on the Nostalgia Train. If you’re looking to leaving our bad ass borough, this is the excursion for you.

Nostalgia Train departs “from 2nd Avenue on the F line in Lower Manhattan and run along 6th Avenue in Manhattan to 47th-50th/Rockefeller Center before heading up the Central Park West line, where the train will stop at 59th St – Columbus Circle before making its way up to 125th St on the A/C/D lines in Harlem.”
