    Well, strictly speaking, this is not a real train but a set inside the PriveRevaux store on 42nd St. Very friendly environment there! I didn't bring my strobe with me, just the A7Rii and the Sigma 35 ART on MB IV.

    For me the more recent scenes go to Michael Jackson's music video "Bad".

    Each Sunday this month NYC MTA has a nostalgia train running on the F line for no more than the cost of a regular subway ride (I'm guessing these are "sterilized" cars that won't have the lovely graffiti). Also nostalgia busses on 42nd street on weekdays (good weather only).

    That's so awesome. I am from NY (now living in Miami) and grew up there in 80s and again in the early 2000's. I miss the old NYC. We go up often to visit my family. I hope they will still be running when I go back!

    I really love the first pic. Perfect set for quick photo op!

    For me it was the '60s. Public school students would get a bus pass that was good for the subways so lots of sport riding. The squealing of the brakes back then was so loud it was painful. I used to love riding between the train cars, but drew the line at subway surfing (riding the top of the cars where the lines are above ground).
