+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Escape the stress and spend a day in the relaxing world of Nostalgia, onboard the New York Transit Museum’s subway and bus fleet. Usually on static display in the Museum or featured in Annual Fall Bus Festivals, the public now has an opportunity to ride select vintage subway cars and buses with all the sights and sounds of yesteryear. Passengers may tour the Museum prior to the departure of the excursions. All trips this year (10 AM to 5 PM) depart from the New York Transit Museum’s decommissioned “Court Street” subway station in Brooklyn Heights.

The first Nostalgia Train excursion on June 6, 2010, is sold out. Seats are still available on the remaining two scheduled for July 31st and August 21, 2010.

The R 1/9s are “Coney Island Bound,” on July 31st offers a day of fun at the beach or additional rides on-board the pre-WWll subway cars with soft seating, ceiling fans and fanciful advertising from the 30s and 40s. Visit the new Luna Park at Coney Island, dine on world famous franks, ice cold lemonade, salt water taffy or other tasty seaside treats. Don’t forget your beach gear!

Catch a double dose of Nostalgia on August 21, 2010, as the vintage R 1/9 subway cars travel to the “Rockaways by Rail and Bus.” Select vintage buses from the 40s and 50s will offer day-long rides at the Rockaways, with an option to ride the train back a the end of the day or for an additional fee ride the bus fleet across Jamaica Bay through Brooklyn ending at the Broadway Junction, at the “A” subway line in East New York.
