Matt told me about the vintage trains a couple weeks ago. This afternoon he suggested we run into the city to see if we could catch it...
What I read online: Every Sunday throughout December, the MTA has operated six-car trains from the 1930s & 1940s on the V line, running from Queens Plaza to Second Avenue in Manhattan. The old cars are usually stored at the New York City Transit Museum in Brooklyn Heights.
Matt and I were lucky - we caught the train at Broadway and Lafayette and were on the last ride to Queens and back.
Here is the conductor... I almost got left on the platform because I was busy taking this photo.
What did I learn today?
The vintage train is not a place for me to meet men. Don't get me wrong...there were PLENTY of men. But I got the feeling that their interest in the trains was greater than their interest in women. ;)
84 out of 100 women prefer men who wear hats. (My dad must have seen this at some point...)
If you haven't done it, put it on your calendar for next year... :)
Matt got some great photos! His camera took them vintage-style! ;) See them all here.
And the rest of my photos are here.
