Nostalgia Train

Recommended Posts

I think back in 2004 the R1-R9 Holiday Train ran on the (N)(R) between 57th Street and Whitehall on Sundays then was switched to the (V) in 2005 and has run from Queens Plaza to Lower East Side-Second Avenue on Sundays since.

 

It both cases (Broadway and Sixth Avenue), the R1-R9 Holiday Train serves 34th Street-Herald Square (shopping, PATH) and Rockerfeller Center (Christmas Tree, ice skating).

I wonder if they'll ever consider changing the route of the Arnines. If anything, they could run via Broadway between Whitehall and Queens Plaza via 60th Street.

Boooooooooo! Make another route! Like the (A) from 207th to WTC! Or bring in the TOMC!!

 

If you don't like it don't go, the TA does not have to do this at all. Plus this year there will be something different along with the Arnines.

Can someone ask the NYCT Twitter webmaster to confirm this? I'm finding this "speculation" hard to believe.

Read it and see that, as I said several times, it is not running this weekend. And if that is not enough, wait at 2nd Ave this Sunday for the train to come, you night be there a while.

Agreed, Whitehall is much better than 2nd Av. It's getting boring that it's the same 'V line' route again.
I think the whole purpose is to run it on the IND, whuch is where those cars are from.

If they could even get the B or D types running, then maybe they would use the (W). The elevated portion is where they ran the gate cars during the centennial.

 

The (E) would be a similar IND line to run them on, but perhaps they want to keep the old cars off of the busy route (except for where they briefly run with it)?

I wonder what else they are running in addition to the (R)(9)s.

 

You will just have to wait and see, it's not definite yet.

Very close, the Green Hornet will be about too.

Yup what INDman said is true, every word of it. We have reliable sources on this info we won't disclose. Now nothing is "final" and set in stone YET and everything is still subject to final approval so realize that things may change but the TENTATIVE PLAN is everything that has been posted here.

 

And no, there will be absolutely no R9 run this Sunday. If you guys don't believe us, you can send one person to each 42nd Street station in Manhattan and you will all get together for a nice dinner and talk about how you saw no museum trains.

 

As for the "bonus" just stay tuned is all i am going to say...but if you're holding out hope that they're going to open up the rest of the Atlantic Avenue tunnell and pull out the other 9 R11's, you just might find yourself a little disappointed.

I can't wait to ride it! I love my annual "Oh Em Gee, Wake Up Dangerously Early On a Sunday To Ride the Arnine and then Spend Myself Silly" holiday celebration!
