NPR's Ben Gilbert reports on the abandoned, but nearly complete, Cincinnati subway system. More than two miles of tunnels and three stations were constructed nearly 80 years ago to alleviate traffic congestion. The money ran out in 1927, but now groups offer tours of the system that's been a source of popular myth and legend for generations of Cincinnatians.
