Nostalgia Subway Cars, Buses Return



Nostalgia subway cars have hit the tracks for the holidays.

V-line trains are now being swapped out on Sundays through the end of the year. In their place, there are cars that date back as far as the 1930s.

Many of the trains feature ceiling fans, padded seats, and incandescent light bulbs.

The V line runs between Queens and Lower Manhattan.

New York City Transit has also brought some vintage buses out of storage for use during the holiday season.

They will be used during rush hour on several routes in Manhattan and Queens.

The fleet consists of 19 buses that go back as far as 1917. However, riders will still have to pay the modern-day fare.
