MTA to Allow Fans to Ride On Four-Car ‘Nostalgia Special’

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority will allow fans to ride vintage subway cars to reach Yankee Stadium on Monday. The move has been adopted in honor of the Bombers' opening day.

As per sources, the classic vintage cars were part of the old IRT system, and started operating in 1917. The vintage cars ran in service for more than five decades before they were retired in the late 1960s.

With their rattan seats, paddle fans and incandescent light bulbs, they served as a splendid illustration of how far rapid-transit car design and technology have advanced over the past 100 years.

It has been told that the first ride will leave the Grand Central Terminal at 11:30 am on April 6, and will run non-stop throughout the day to the Bronx.

MTA New York City Transit will be sending the four-car 'Nostalgia Special' non-stop from Grand Central-42 St to 161 St- Yankee Stadium. The cars will be 1917 Lo-V models.

The ride up to the Bronx will get fans to the stadium gates in plenty of time for the first pitch at 1:05 p. m.
