The MTA's Holiday Nostalgia Rides are back for the next five Saturdays—and they're taking you all the way up to Harlem.
The vintage trains are operating on the F and D lines this holiday season, starting at 2nd Avenue and making express stops to 145th Street.
The rides, which kick off today, December 2nd, are scheduled for four more Saturdays: December 9th, 16th, 23rd and 30th.
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 145th Street station on the downtown D platform at 11am, 1pm, 3pm and 5pm (one exception: today 12/2 the train will be leaving from the uptown D platform at 145th Street).
Or you can start downtown and catch the train from 2nd Avenue on the F line at 10am, noon, 2pm and 4pm.
This year the rides feature the R1/9S cars, in service from 1932 to 1977—the same ones that inspired Billy Strayhorn's unforgettable jazz standard "Take the A Train."
