Vintage train to Woodlawn Cemetery offers glimpse into WWI-era commuting

The New York Transit Museum is marking the 100th anniversary of a Bronx subway station with a vintage train ride and cemetery tour.

The Woodlawn station, designed by architect Squire Vickers, opened on April 15, 1918.

To commemorate the station’s opening, the transit museum is dusting off a World War I-era low-voltage subway train for a trip to the neighborhood from Grand Central Terminal on April 15. The train leaves at 11 a.m. and returns at 5 p.m.
