Let's hope Opening Day's only nostalgia is Yankees train, not last season's dismal play

All aboard! Subway cars retired in the 1960s will take fans to Yankee Stadium. TheMTA

If you’re in Grand Central at 11:30 a.m. Monday, and you spot what looks like a really -- really -- old train on the uptown 4 and 5 express track, you’re not seeing things.


It’s the MTA’s low-voltage “Nostalgia Special,” which the agency rolls out now and then for special occasions like, say, Opening Day at Yankee Stadium.


The train will ride on the 4 line to the stadium, departing around 11:30 a.m. for the 30-minute trip. The cars are 1917 Lo-Vs that once ran on the IRT line.

They were retired 50 years ago when the fare was 15 cents.

No nostalgia on that -- you still have to pay $2.75.

Hopefully, the only nostalgia Monday will be those old subway cars -- and not the Bombers losing ways last season.

The Yanks are playing the Toronto Blue Jays at 1 p.m.

Play ball!
