Did you know that Senators and members of the House get their very own subway system? Below the US Capitol is a network of small trains that shuttle politicians and staff between office buildings.

In this video, we will show you all three lines, the two manually-operated lines as well as the automated train. Find out why these exist, and what they used to look like! Trains Are Awesome!
