Nostalgia Rides 2013!

Recommended Posts

In my opinion everyone should go. Although it is expensive, it is worth it.

 

In addition, as of now, tickets are available for non-museum members!

NOSTALGIA RIDES

 

 

Join us for an adventure when we take our vintage subway cars out for the day!

 

 

CONEY ISLAND

Non-members Adults $50 / Children $25 Museum Members Adults $35 / Children $20

Join us on the ever popular, boardwalk-bound Coney Island Nostalgia Train. Ride the 1930s R1/9 cars of the Independent Subway System above and below ground for a two-hour jaunt. Then visit Coney Island's beach-side amusement park, take a dip in the ocean, or stay on the train for additional rides.

 

 

ORCHARD BEACH– New!

Sat, July 13, 10 am to 5 pm – Tickets

Non-members Adults $50 / Children $25 Museum Members Adults $35 / Children $20

Our WWI-era IRT subway cars are headed for some sun and surf at a new Nostalgia Ride destination - Pelham Bay Park and the only public beach in the Bronx - Orchard Beach! Ride in style on our one day getaway to the largest park in New York City. The park boasts a 13-mile coastline, 19th century country house, nature trails, playgrounds and more!

 

 

THE BRONX EXPRESS: VOYAGE TO VAN CORTLANDT PARK

Venture uptown on our WWI-era IRT subway cars to spacious public grounds at Van Cortlandt Park, the third largest park in NYC. During a 3-hour layover, explore Van Cortlandt House Museum and a stroll along the John Kieran Nature Trail. Pack a picnic blanket and “staycation” with us!

 

 

I'm also looking at the other events they have. They'll have tours of Van Cortlandt Park Yard.

 

 

240TH STREET MAINTENANCE FACILITY – NEW!

 

Sat, June 22, 11 am to 1 pm – Tickets

Sat, July 20, 11 am to 1 pm – Tickets

Sat, Aug. 24, 11 am to 1 pm – Tickets

The elevated Van Cortlandt Yard dates back to the earliest years of subway service. The Yard and shops – with over 20 tracks – are entirely supported on an elevated structure originally built over a century ago. Superintendent Raymond DelValle is your guide for a behind-the-scenes look at the home of subway cars for today's 1 line. To be admitted to this restricted site participants must sign a release and provide a copy of a government-issued ID.

You better hurry up for the tours of Van Cortlandt Park Yard because they are almost 100% sold out!

A tour at 240, interesting. I guess that's why they've been repainting and such. The barn isn't that big, wonder where the tour will go. Good thing I'm midnights and not AMs
