    As someone who doesn't find trains interesting, I really fancy visiting this museum. It looks great from these pics.

    Truly excellent "do" - it takes place every year , and this year's was the best ever attended. The staff apparently do a lot of it their spare time , and they were superbly professional and friendly. The start point , Brighton Beach - near Coney Island is in itself interesting as a very Russian community.

    They also run vintage trains (train) on the 6th Ave line in the weekends before Christmas. No extra charge bar a $2.75 swipe.

    I can now die happily that I have ridden in service a 1901 wooden BMT car and a BMT Standard and an IND R9. Easily satisfied me.
