Remember the H Train? MTA Brings Back Lost Line to Help Sandy Relief

The long forgotten H train last ran 20 years ago, but the MTA has brought it back to help connect those in the Rockaways with much needed aid.

Starting Tuesday, the H train, which last ran in the Rockaways from 1988 to 1992, will run fare-free every 15 minutes between the Far Rockaway-Mott Avenue Station and the Beach 90-Holland Station, making all local stops by using a connection not normally used for service.”
