    MTA NYC Transit & The NY Transit Museum are putting extra magic on the rails

    with the MTA’s annual holiday tradition of rides to the past via its vintage fleet.

    These subway cars will help customers experience the most magical time of

    year the way that New York straphangers did long ago.

    A special 8-car subway train that is typically displayed in the Museum is put into

    service for special Sunday rides. This “Shoppers Special” takes customers
    between Lower Manhattan to Queens on four consecutive Sundays from Thanksgiving Weekend to the week before Christmas, all for $2.75.

    • LocationNear a station in Central Queens where three (E) trains terminate late in the AM Rush Hour on weekdays (at 8:27, 9:02, 9:13 from WTC, arriving at my home station at 9:09, 9:44 and 9:56 respectively) and was the terminal for E and EE trains from its opening on December 31, 1936 to April 24, 1937. This station is also home to R160 or R46 layups during the evening and weekend hours.

    Today, the shoppers special is out of service b/c of mechanical problems on the train at 2nd Av. 

    The train will then be displayed at that station.

    There's a light forecast of snow for tomorrow- does this mean the train won't be running?
