Watch This First Person View of a Subway's Trip From Coney Island to Manhattan

Local transit historian and railfan Dj Hammers makes tons of great videos showing how subway transit works and runs in the City.

Hammers recently got a chance to film almost the entire length of the Q subway line, as seen by the front car’s motorman through the front window of a vintage 1930s R1 train. It’s a fantastic look at the tunnels, and a side of the subway system that we rarely get to see.

The museum R1 cars have a front window that passengers can see out of. Quite the view!! This video was taken on a museum train excursion that visited Coney Island. Tickets for excursions like this are available on the Transit Museum’s website.
