Video: Seeing a train get assembled is a lot like watching someone play with LEGO bricks, only if that someone was God and the LEGO bricks were stupidly ginormous.

Watch A Train Travel Inside The Tunnels Of The New York City Subway System

Video: The New York City subway works, most of the time. It’s not the flashiest and it’s not the cleanest and it’s not always on time and it can get too crowded during rush hour but you can get all over the city for $US2.75. Not the worst deal!

What could go wrong!

A Rare Glimpse Of The Ancient Infrastructure That Controls NYC's Subway

New York City’s subway system is a wonder of engineering — but sadly, that engineering is so old that it’s not even manufactured anymore, causing huge problems for the people who run it and anyone trying to use it. That means the MTA has built a whole shop up around trying to maintain its ageing technology, and now they’re giving us a look at this underground industry.

What Is The Most Obnoxious Behaviour You've Seen On Public Transit?
