It is hard to imagine a more devastating scene than the one still smoldering in lower Manhattan.

But as deep as the wound is -- those who know the city from the inside out, say it could have cut even deeper.

(SOT/ TO BE COVERED 00:34:28)

"Probably 50-60-thousand people could have been down there when this event happened on our trains. None of them got hurt."

(NARR:)


Nearly 5 million people ride New York's subways every day -- and on the morning of September 11th -- everyone made it out -- evacuated just in time.

(NAT/SOT FEMA VIDEO)



(NARR:)


Within an hour of the attack -- debris came crashing in on the tunnels -- a 1500 foot section completely collapsed -- the ceiling riddled with I-beams -- that punctured through the street like spears.

(SOT/1/8CG :2-line�Lawrence Reuter�President, MTA NYC Transit3/8)
(teed tape 1 -- 00:30:12)

"Some of them they estimate were coming from 70-80 stories up in the air from the building and they probably now are probably 60-80 foot through concrete and earth embedded in the ground."

(NARR:)
Days after these pictures were taken --- parts of the tunnel were

filled with concrete -- floor to ceiling -- to shore it up as the debris was gently taken away -- and heavy cranes moved in above.

(COWAN ON CAM: - teed tape #2 00:43:18)

"This is the next stop on that wounded line -- a station that once served some 12-thousand riders a day. It's now cut off from the rest of the system -- eerily quiet -- and will likely stay this way for years."

(SOT/ 1/8CG :2-line�Lawrence Reuter�President, MTA NYC Transit3/8)

"It's probably nine months to a year before they finish the clean-up work over there at the World Trade Center, (edit 00:24:08) ...and it's probably two to three years to rebuild the subway after that."

(NARR:)


At the turn of the century, it was a laborious process -- creating almost as much rubble as there is at ground zero.

To do it again will be costly -- the city's best guess: about a Billion dollars a mile --and a lot of patience from riders.
