Some Yankee fans who take the 4 train from Grand Central Station to Wednesday's playoff game might think they are headed back in time to see Babe Ruth and Murderers' Row at the Stadium.

The MTA is rolling out a vintage I.R.T. train for the game.

The train began service in 1917 and was retired in the '60s.

It features rattan seats, ceiling fans and drop sash windows.

The four-car "Nostalgia Special" is scheduled to leave Grand Central at 6:30 p.m. and run nonstop to the Stadium.

The trip is expected to last 30 minutes. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
