The Holidays at the NY Transit Museum

The holidays are coming up fast! The New York Transit Museum has posted their Holiday Gift Guide with something for every subway buff on your shopping list! Christmas tree ornaments, model trains, clothing... and get your MetroCard swag before OMNY takes over!

Also, beginning November 16th, 2023, the Holiday Train Show returns to the Grand Central Gallery. This year, pre-timed tickets are required.

UPDATE! The NY Transit Museum will continue their tradition of running historic trains for the holiday season. Ride the museum's 1930s R1/9 train every Saturday in December on the F and D lines as follows:

  • Northbound, departs 2nd Avenue on the uptown F line in Lower Manhattan at: 10am, 12pm, 2pm, 4pm
  • Southbound, departs 145th Street on the downtown D line at: 11am, 1pm, 3pm, 5pm

These rides are "free" with a paid regular subway fare (Metrocard swipe or OMNY tap).

Please note, nycsubway.org is not affiliated with the Transit Museum; we post information like this in support of their efforts!
