An annual Nostalgic tradition for the MLB playoffsBy
As the Yankees gear up to take on the Orioles in the Bronx tonight for Game 3 of the American League Division Series, the MTA is rolling out its annual Nostalgia Train rides up to Yankee Stadium. A four-car special will depart Grand Central on the IRT express tracks and provide non-stop service up to 161st St.-Yankee Stadium. Tonight and tomorrow, the trains leave at 6:30 p.m., and on Friday, if the game is necessary, the ride departs from 42nd St. at 4 p.m.
“Taking mass transit to the game is the smart way to travel but the “Nostalgia Special” makes the ride smart and special,” Carmen Bianco, Senior Vice President of Subways for NYC Transit, said. “Yankee fans rode these cars to see Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig and they are in operation once again for Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez.”
