AND, I have to be in NYC that day!! I imagine the train won't do the entire run? It'll probably just do the Manhattan portion. That's important so as to judge its headway. ... how long will I have to wait at 34 Penn to get that train...

the article says

"125th Street at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, April 29, making express stops through Manhattan and Brooklyn to Howard Beach in Queens." and it's a round trip.

and before anyone brings up money, it's being sponsered by the Bahammas.

For those of you who may not know the story behind the tune "Take the A Train," it was inspired by Duke Ellington's instructions to the co writer of the tune, Billy Strayhorn. When Billy Strayhorn wanted to know how to get to Duke Ellington's residence, Duke Ellington simply replied "Take the A Train" and a song title was born.

NO. It will start at 125 Street at 10am and will proceed to Howard Beach. Once it arrives there, it will make a return trip...most likely to 207 Street where it will then lay up. It will be in service for about 3 hours.

I'm not yelling at you. Just letting you know they will not be running at 5pm. Because they're "older" equipment, they are forbidden to be in service at peak times.

True about Museum trains for the rush hour to risky. However, There have been times when They have been allowed to run for the rush hour I think Last year or something had 1. It may have been a baseball special?

The only time I recall the TA pulling out the museum fleet for rush hour service was on October 27th, 2004. They ran a 3-car set on the 42nd Street Shuttle early into the PM rush.

I hope they set even the side signs for A-8th Ave. Express instead of S-Special. Let's also hope that they run seven cars again - unless 1000 is up for the task, too.
