BROOKLYN, New York (WABC) -- One of the most beloved holiday traditions each year is the New York Transit Museum's Holiday Nostalgia Train Rides.
Founded in 1976, the New York Transit Museum is dedicated to telling and preserving the stories of mass transportation.
Visitors can board the vintage cars, sit at the wheel of a city bus, step through a time tunnel of turnstiles, and explore changing exhibits that highlight the cultural, social and technological history - and future - of mass transit.
Every year, the New York Transit Museum brings some of their vintage 1930s R1-9 train cars back on the tracks!
As an ode to the holiday shopping season, the vintage trains will depart 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.
