Three “Nostalgia Train” subways will roll from Grand Central to Yankee Stadium this week for the Bombers’ pursuit of another
world America-plus-Toronto championship, reports SecondAvenueSagas.com.
The four-car train is scheduled to leave an hour before game time. Tonight and tomorrow, the trains will depart Grand Central at approximately 7 p.m., and on Wednesday, the vintage subway will leave at 3 p.m. Transit says these cars were Interborough Rapid Transit company originals from 1917 and were in service through the early 1960s. Many Yankee fans can remember taking these subway cars up to the Bronx as kids decades ago.
And, no, the cars are not covered in graffitti.
