Some riders using New York City's subway system to get to Yankee Stadium for Opening Day are also going to get a trip back in time — way back in time.
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority says a four-car "Nostalgia Special" is scheduled to leave Grand Central Terminal at 11:30 a.m. Monday and run non-stop to the stadium in the Bronx.
The cars will be 1917 Lo-V models, which were used by the subway system until the late 1960s.
The old-time cars have rattan seats and incandescent light bulbs to remind us all of a gentler time in commuting. And when handlebar moustaches were the norm, not just an annoying hipster trend on the L line.
I'm just wondering when the Yankees will salute the teams from the '70s with those old graffiti-covered Redbirds.
Now that was a trip.
