BROOKLYN - Those wishing to experience how it felt to ride trains of yesteryear may look no further than their typical subway stops.

Throughout the year, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority normally offers special scheduled nostalgia rides on trains from the mid-1900s at the New York Transit Museum in Downtown Brooklyn.

But this year's holiday experience is a little different, as the trains are rolling into normal subway stations to surprise waiting straphangers.

The vintage trains will run every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. this month. They're available on the F and M lines from Queens Plaza to Second Avenue in Manhattan.
