To the Rockaways by Rail Nostalgia Ride

Grab a seat on a beach-bound Nostalgia Ride heading to the Rockaways this August! We’re celebrating summer by taking our 1930s R-1/9 vintage train cars on a trip from our own Court Street station home in Brooklyn to Rockaway Park-Beach 116th Street in Queens. 

Don't forget your dancing shoes — as a special treat, we'll be joined by Cait and the Critters, a New York City-based jazz band, onboard the train en route to the Rockaways!

Pack a picnic lunch to enjoy on the beach, take a dip in the ocean, or enjoy additional rides on our vintage trains before heading out to explore the boardwalk. Ride our vintage train back to the city at the end of the afternoon, or stay late to enjoy the nightlife on Rockaway Beach before making your way home on your own.

Tickets for Transit Museum Members are $35 for adults and $20 for children. For the general public, tickets are $50 for adults and $25 for children. Please note that all ticket sales must take place in advance of the trip; no tickets will be available for sale the day of the event.
