In a departure from the typical repurposing of retired train carriages as Airbnbs or restaurants, a group of individuals in New York City took their Thanksgiving festivities to a whole new level. 

Rather than waiting for a train to be retired, they transformed a section of a moving train into an exclusive dining space for their grand Thanksgiving feast.

This wasn't just a casual distribution of plates or a small picnic; they went the extra mile by cordoning off a dedicated area within the train carriage to host their elaborate and memorable meal.

Additionally, a whole table with food and drink accessible was set up for serving the guests. They were giving out plates to train passengers, and it appeared that everyone was invited.

People might have felt more vulnerable at this time of year for those without a family, biological or chosen, so they were taken aback by the display of community.

Their amazement and appreciation for the gesture were expressed in the comments section.

It's great to see how they came together to share a Thanksgiving meal, even though it was on a train, dude, one person wrote.

It was a great method to reunite individuals after the pandemic, according to another.

This is so cute! It is great to witness individuals enjoying Thanksgiving in public with strangers, as the epidemic caused a great deal of separation among people, another said.

I would cry if this were real. For a brief while, if I were alone in the world and this sub filled with individuals like these, it would seem like home, someone expressed.
