1905 video of the IRT and a question

From the looks of the video, that curve would be heading towards 42nd Street Grand Central after leaving 33rd Street. Towards the end your on track 4 of the current IRT 42nd Street (S).

 

That would be correct. From there, the line went to Times Square, which was a local station when it was part of the original subway as Times Square had not yet become what it would and why there are only three tracks and three platforms there as Track 2 has a platform over it on the (S), with the line then heading to Broadway and becoming today's (1), (2) and (3) trains north of Times Square.
