Nostalgia Train left the Museum @ 11:00 AM, ran to Rockaway Park via the A and Shuttle lines, over Jamaica Bay, arrived at 12 Noon (or shortly after). From there the train laid up in the yard since the buses were running.
Buses ran from Rockaway Park Station to Jacob Riis Park about every 20 minutes. From what I observed, there was no 'set' schedule as far as what bus would run at what exact time - whatever bus was next ran, providing they had no problems (I say this because last year or 2 years ago they had trouble getting one of them out of Neutral).
The last bus left Jacob Riis park @ 3:30 PM.
At 4:15 PM (or shortly after), the Nostalgia Train left the yard to move back into the station for the passengers to board. At 4:30, the train left. The final destination for the train was 207 Street Yard in Uptown Manhattan. Passengers had the choice of getting off at one of the following stops:
West 4th Street/Washington Square
34th Street/8th Avenue
42nd Street - Port Authority Bus Terminal
175 Street - Final Stop for Passengers.
