"In 1891 Teed gave a talk in Pittsburgh in which he captivated his audience with some of the practical applications of the power that would be unleashed when the governments of the world had fallen under his leadership. He proposed to employ a million men to build a six-track railroad from the Atlantic to the Pacific Coasts, planned to construct a pneumatic tunnel that would carry persons on nonwheeled vehicles from New York to San Francisco in twelve hours, and claimed to have applied for a patent for a device by which he could sit in his office in Chicago and set type by wire for every newspaper in the country." Cyrus Reed Teed and the Koreshan Unity, Americas Communal Utopia


Off Topic: Cyrus Teed is an interesting fellow who dabbled in alchemy and invented a cellular cosmology, which had people living on the inside of the earth with a central sun in the middle. This essay was a fascinating read.

Some more images from the video with vimanas, pyramids, sphinx looking dudes, electrical apparatus a la Tartarian style, evidence of cleaning up after a catastrophe, disc and orb shaped stones and a Duck that looks like a swastika to me. The dude in the last picture is holding something interesting too. I'll thumbnail them so you can see the details.

sorry for off topic.

Those are some kind of curiosity.
It looks to me like someone was trying to piece together the true history of Siberia.

If we take this one

From the Louisiana Purchase exhibition in 1904 on the Pittsburgh Railway Exhibit. Cast or steel casing lined with concrete. Could have been made yesterday apart from the classy looking clerestory roof carriage section!

Found these three sites whilst looking for something else. All relate to the Crystal Palace railway.

Here is an interesting work pertaining to our pneumatic trains:
The narrative appears to be downplaying these 19th century Atmospheric Railways

Additionally would be nice to get a hold of this Volume 4 of the Engineering Papers.

More patents: They were making improvements to the existing atmospheric railway systems.

You can see more of these improvements right here:

Funny thing is, I can’t even imagine something like that operating on our streets today. It’s like too futuristic or something of sorts.

I wonder if these 19th century inventors had foreknowledge of the many underground tunnels that supposedly crisscross our world.
If it's true that the US Military has access to a vacuum tube maglev train, or "Terradrve," one that can reportedly achieve mach 2.7, then
we might consider that the inventors may have known something we don't in the public sector. Some say many of the tunnels are ancient.
The word is they have tunnel boring machines (TBM) that are zero-point energy-powered, and they leave behind watertight anthracite walls via melting the surrounding rock; a 3-foot thick wall is left in place. The USAF have a public patent on the books circa 1973 for an "atomic" TBM.
Just food for thought.

Excerpt:

"Terradrive could also refer to the sub-terranean Mach 2.7 mag-lev trains, which connect all the secret underground bases around the world, according to the testimonies of previous government workers like Philip Schneider. The trains are also purported to be called the UN prisoner transport trains, which makes sense when some conspiracy theories are considered.
The US build two per year ($1 Trillion spent on such black projects). For testimony, see the www.youtube.com videos of Philip Schneider. 137.215.9.20 10:27, 21 September 2007 (UTC) Freeflow."
