tien checked out one of the MTA's nostalgia train rides over the weekend. The Nostalgia Trains are a special Subway Centennial effort to educate New Yorkers about the way their transportation system used to run. Gothamist would like to petition for more fans, even for the trains where air-conditioning supposedly works, because that would help take the edge off some morning commutes when everyone is packed in like sardines.

callalillie also went on the train ride, as well as organizing a NYC cheesecake smackdown.
