Monday April 6th, 2015

Some New York Yankees fans taking the subway to the team's Opening Day game were able to ride the Metropolitan Transit Authority's "Nostalgia Special," a subway train from 1917. The train took passengers from Grand Central Terminal to Yankee Stadium on Monday.

The train was in service in New York from 1917 until the 1960's's and was fully restored to its vintage glory for the ride, with ceiling fans and maps that would have been found in the cars during its years of operation, according to the New York Post.
