Holiday Nostalgia Train Returns

After a pandemic hiatus, New York City Transit and the New York Transit Museum are running a Holiday Nostalgia Train on Sundays between November 27 and December 18, 2022. To promote the Museum's new "Reign of the Redbird" exhibit, this year's Nostalgia Train will use the 1960s IRT "Redbird" cars, now known as the "Train of Many Colors" due to the many paint schemes the cars wore over their service lifetime. Two cars each sport the well known "Gunn Red" Redbird paint, a brighter "Tartar Red", a dark kale green, the 1970s MTA standardized silver with blue stripe, and the 1964 World's Fair "Bluebird" colors. For more information, including a schedule, visit NY Transit Museum Holiday Nostalgia Train.
