The Holiday Nostalgia Rides operate on the 1 line this year.

The MTA's Holiday Nostalgia Rides are back with a new route this year—and they're taking you all the way up to Harlem.

The vintage trains are operating on the 1 line this holiday season, starting at Chambers Street and making express stops to 137th Street-City College.

The rides, which kicked off this weekend, are scheduled for three more Sundays: December 4th, 11th and 18th.

As in previous years, they cost the same as a regular Metrocard swipe or OMNY tap.

To take the vintage trains from Harlem, get on at the 137th Street station at 11am, 1pm, 3pm and 5pm.

Or you can start downtown and catch the train from Chambers Street at 10am, noon, 2pm and 4pm.

This year the rides feature what the New York Transit Museum calls "the train of many colors."

All of the cars were manufactured in the 1960s, including two types of Redbirds, the kale green “Green Machine”, the blue-and-silver “Platinum Mist” and the blue-and-cream “Bluebird."
