NEW YORK (AP) — Certain lucky riders using New York City's subway system to get to Yankee Stadium for Opening Day are also going to get a trip back in time.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority says a four-car "Nostalgia Special" is scheduled to leave Grand Central Terminal at 11:30 a.m. Monday and run non-stop to the stadium in the Bronx.

The cars will be 1917 Lo-V models, which were used by the subway system until the late 1960s. They have rattan seats and incandescent light bulbs.

The Yankees are playing the Toronto Blue Jays. The game starts at 1:05 p.m. Former Yankees manager Joe Torre is set to throw out the first pitch.
