Yankees' Fans Take Nostalgia Train to Opening Day
Monday, April 07, 2014
The MTA ran a special "nostalgia" train from Grand Central Station direct to Yankee Stadium for opening day. Lucky fans on the Uptown 4 platform caught the "low voltage" train just before noon. The "Lo-V" trains provided service to passengers on the MTA for over 50 years before being retired in 1969.
