A 1930s era subway makes its way along the tracks in the Queens borough of New York, Thursday, May 30, 2013, commemorating the opening of a stretch of subway tracks badly damaged during Superstorm Sandy in late October 2012.
NEW YORK (AP) — Hundreds of lucky New York City commuters got a surprise trip back in time when eight 1930s-era subway cars were briefly returned to service offering woven wicker seats, ceiling fans and rusted metal exteriors. The cars were pulled out of storage for a one-time trip Thursday to commemorate the reopening of a 3.7-mile stretch of subway tracks in Queens that were badly damaged by Superstorm Sandy seven months ago. Straphangers who just happened to be in the right place at the right time snapped pictures on their iPhones and gawked at the old-timey ads for Clark bars and Levy’s Rye Bread adorning the walls of the train running on the A line. Lucky straphangers who happened to be in the right place at the right time got a nostalgic ride in an 8-car city subway train. Charles Seaton, a spokesman for the Metropolitan Transit Authority, said the eight train cars were purchased from an order of 1,702 between 1930 and 1939.


The IND line was home to the lettered subways, and the cars operated on the opening of the original segment of the A line in 1932. The cars were put into regular passenger service Thursday from Beach 116th Street in Queens to 168th Street in upper Manhattan after making the inaugural run in the Rockaways, where subway service between Howard Beach and Broad Channel had been closed since the late-October storm.
College student Evin Ye, who boarded the vintage train at Fulton Street in lower Manhattan, was caught totally off guard when he saw the old-school A train approaching his station.
For Perl, the trip uptown evoked memories of a better time in New York, a time when there actually were weekly firework displays on Coney Island and a time when a train ride cost only a nickel — which it did, in 1939.

They were a far cry from the sleek, air conditioned silver trains people hop aboard each day.
They ran on the old Independent Subway System, or IND line, when the city’s subway system was made up of three separate agencies. Sandy washed out 1,500 feet of tracks, destroyed power and communications wires and flooded the Broad Channel and Rockaway Park-Beach 116th Street stations.
