Board a vintage R1-9 locomotive for the New York Transit Museum’s annual day trip to the beach. Gotham’s first city-operated transit company, the Independent Subway System, sent this buggy out in the 1930s complete with rattan chairs, ceiling fans and a hand-operated destination roll sign. The train takes a scenic, almost-two-hour route to the boardwalk, where you’ll unload for a day of sun and sand, and stops at various subway hubs on the return leg. Other period locomotives are scheduled later this season to go to Pelham Bay Park (July 13) and Van Cortlandt Park (Aug 25).
