When you first walk into the Transit Museum (or at least it was this way back in April) this video was looping on one of the exhibits.
This video was really cool. What i found especially interesting was 1.) how small the platforms and stations were on the original IRT line (like 5 car lengths) and 2.) how the train passed the now abandoned 18th street station and to see when it was open.
actually, even though its gritty and over a hundred years old, the film shows the system when it was brand spanking new. I like it!
