While re-watching holiday classics such as "It's a Wonderful Life" or "Miracle on 34th Street," viewers might find themselves longing for Christmas seasons gone by. 

The New York City MTA has just the ticket for lovers of all things Christmas vintage. The annual New York City nostalgia train is returning this weekend, putting antique trains back into service every Sunday until Christmas.

The trains date from the 1930s through the 1970s and include original advertisements, rattan seating, ceiling fans, and bulb lighting, according to the New York City Transit Museum.

For the price of a swipe on a Metrocard, or $2.75, city-dwellers and visitors can travel back in time. Participants often fully embrace the tradition, dressing in mid-20th century garb and performing music.
