There's nothing like a trip down memory lane back to the 1930s to make a history buff wax nostalgic:
Dozens of subway buffs turned out to ride in the historic R1 subway cars adorned with advertising for products such as Lifebuoy Health Soap. A bar sold for 5 cents, equaling the price of a ride in 1932.

"It reminds me of when times were good and the country was prosperous," said subway history fan Louis Maimone, 52, of the Bronx. "It's a bit of nostalgia."
Ah, the Great Depression. Good times, good times...
