Forgotten Cincinnati Subway (website)

Category: Transit

Cincinnati: Midwestern cities are generally not known for their subways, although several have them. Cincinnati, back in a more golden age, started building one, and for a variety of reasons never finished it.
This website explains it all and gives a fascinating look at the massive tunnels that still lie vacant under the city.

Cincinnati has been planning a new light-rail system for years but is having a hard time getting it off the ground. If it ever gets built, the old tunnel may finally see a use! St. Louis' Metrolink Light rail uses a similar pre-existing tunnel to travel under downtown saving a fortune in costs.

Vancouver's Skytrain is another example. The downtown tunnel was built in the 1930s and then not used for many years before the new system was built in the 1980s.
