Point me in the right direction for a primer on subway power?


Recommended Posts

Hi all -- It's been a while since I posted, but my last time around these parts was to try and find a subway car or two to buy ... probably needless to say, that didn't go too well! Here's my introduction with a link to that thread:




So the full story: I'm a filmmaker and was trying to get a car to use/abuse. We didn't find anything to buy, but we did find somewhere to shoot, which I'll gladly share with y'all if/when it actually goes through.


Now we're getting ready to make a film -- not a big studio picture, but a small independent one -- and we're doing some research on the system itself. I don't want to come off like a crazy person or anything, but does anyone have a good place to start reading/researching the power schematics to the trains? Specifically wondering what kind of emergency shutoffs and whatnot there are on a per-track basis...


Any help/advice would be very much appreciated. If interested, our last project was "The West Side" -- an online series we call an Urban Western (a western set in NYC). It won the 2008 Webby Award for Best Drama Series. Check it out: http://thewestside.tv


Thanks again --
