"I didn't give a 10 rating (Best Game Ever) because I didn't play every game ever made, but this was my favorite. You really got a dime's worth. Fabulous animation, great play and awesome retro period beauty." (voted 9/10)

Pinrescue can’t imagine what Ekkehard above was thinking but almost everyone else agrees that Subway is a winner. This one is in fabulous condition older cabinet repaint that still looks good nice original playfield and excellent original art glass. Subways in general were played often and hard to find one in this nice all around condition 51 years later is rare.
