MTA rolls out vintage trains for Yankees, Mets openers
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority is rolling out vintage train cars in New York City for Yankees and Mets fans on Opening Day.
The agency says a "Nostalgia Train" with four cars from 1917 will leave Grand Central Terminal at 11:30 a.m. Monday to take fans to Yankee Stadium for a 1:05 p.m. game against the Houston Astros.
On April 8, a "Train of Many Colors" consisting of 11 cars built between 1948 and 1964 will leave 34th Street-Hudson Yards at 11:30 a.m. to take fans to Citi Field for the Mets' home opener against the Philadelphia Phillies.
The colors of the cars mark different eras in subway history.
