DC lines now connect low-cost hydroelectric resources in northern Canada to U.S. markets. DC has long been used for underwater electric transmission. A line already is in place under Long Island Sound, chrome-extension://oemmndcbldboiebfnladdacbdfmadadm/https://www.energy.gov/sites/prod/files/oeprod/DocumentsandMedia/primer.pdf

Why do trains use relatively low voltage DC power? Is there a single reason? Seems pointless. The voltage is still high enough to kill people.

Indianapolis, Indiana never has had any electric trains travelling through it as far as I know.  Regular trains maybe but not electric.  We had street cars and trackless trollies then regular city buses but never electric trains.  But how in the daylights did they get all of that equipment down there anyway?

The map, at 1:23 shows, shows the "metro north network" electrical system, operating in Canada, north of Lake Erie. These lines were always Canadian owned. The map shows lines from Niagara Falls, ON, in the east, to Windsor and Sarnia, ON, in the west. These rail lines lines were always diesel-powered. Even if these electrical power had been used, the idea of the DC power being sourced from New York is outlandish. The historian in this video describes what is truly a fascinating and historic place. However, the purported journalism is seriously deficient in facts.

Boooo 👎 lol I lived in NYC for the majority of my life and just recently moved to FL and I have to say that Iv seen much more surprising things at 13 lol than this freaking video lol. In addition, I must say that the world is running out of great things to see, that makes people and even news broadcasters to lie/make up thing so that the public would have some type of interest for views. So sad but teue. Thats why this world now has so many problems and its so hard to find honest people/companies these days. 80% are full of shit!!!! With there evil agendas!!!!! Enough said as this subject when I really think of it gets me really sad and upset. I say the only people this might surprise is someone who has never ever had a TV or maybe a 10 year old far, far from Alaska lol even then these days lol its hard to say :)

Video demonstrates how much the Media is pure S**T!! The substation DID NOT supply the whole NE rail network, just Grand Central and rails up to Westchester County, at the furthest. After that the rail network was a model of De- centralized control. The biggest sensational, scary story today? People actually BELIEVE the Media!!!!

This is crap! First of all the only electrified portions of railroad at that time were in the NE between New York and Washington and then further north into Connecticut. AC at 11000 volts was used. DC was used on short sections earlier in time.

Something doesn't add up here, DC current would not be used over any distance, everone knows AC is far better for long distance use. Why shoot someone who enters a generator room? Lastly America did not declare war on Germany, Germany declared war on America.

Almost every single thing that this "historian" says is not true. From the area that is served by this facility ( a small area in NYC) to the story of the saboteurs to Metro North running trains to the midwest is sheer bullshit. Spread it on the garden and you'd have great tomatoes.

Have you people lost your minds..?? Hitler had many, many things to worry about, but this..?? This was hardly one of them, it's embarrassing that people actually still believe in that.. It is more believeable that this was propaganda from the US government to scare people into believing in a foreign attack on US soil was imminent to justify going to war.. At least we know now that the government back then did use propaganda..

You can't transport direct current over that large rail network from that basement alone. It's more efficient to use AC current to cover distance. Doesn't add up.

Vance Elliott (5 months ago)
Anyone that knows basic electrical circuits will know that DC current doesn't travel long distances efficiently. i.e. there's a bunch of these generators for the different regions. i.e. these reporters are way off.

The guy hosting the tour is notorious for, shall we say, amplifying his stories. He hosted NBC when they toured the mysterious platform below the Waldorf Astoria and inflated details of FDR and his "secret train." Lots of facts in this video just dead wrong

GNN THY WILL BE DONE++++Karen Senator Gillibrand all of the sudden wants to get rid of ICE ... This is why Senator Feinstein put in her immigration bill that there should be no arrests within a hundred miles of that border. They don’t want actual enforcement of the law at the border. What they want is to go back to the dangerous Obama policy of ‘catch and release’. GNN THY WILL BE DONE++++ This why she wants “ICE” taken away from the Mexican border>>>New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand's father is tied to ... Senator-Kirsten-Gillibrand's-father-tied-sex..New York, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand's father has ties to a sex cult whose leader was just arrested at a luxury villa in Mexico and ... 24-carat gold rings ... That little Spanish puppy they have running for NY democratic party is to divert from the real bit of the wolf.

1:46 - more fake news. America didn't declare war on Germany in 1941. It was the other way around. Germany declared war on America after it's Axis partner, Japan bombed Pearl Harbor. More evidence why people should never trust anything they see on crappy internet channels like this.
