From LIC Post:
The MTA is running vintage subway trains every Sunday from Queens Plaza.
The trains provide passengers with a feel of what it was like traveling the subways of yesteryear. The trains include advertisements from years ago and include straphangers. There are signs explaining the history of the cars.
Riders have the option to take the whole ride (a half hour or so, from Queens to Manhattan), or just hop on and off. Some enthusiasts dress up in clothes from the 1930s.
Departures from Queens Plaza are at:
10:44 AM, 12:14 PM, 1:43 PM, 3:14 PM, and 4:44 PM on Sundays through December 30.
