All aboard…for some of the most thrilling, high-octane train rides imaginable! Series host Matt Brown, a real-life railroad conductor from New England, brings his infectious passion for these monster machines to rail journeys across the United States. Experience some of the highest, fastest, longest, and strongest railroad engines and train lines, and ride aboard amazing special trains that carry everything from coal to circus performers to refrigerated produce. Feel the force of railroads in history, including the demolition of Penn Station and the first train robbers, and learn how the Nazis tried to blow up the rails in World War II.
But railroading is about more than machines, cargo, and challenging terrain. Matt also explores the human blood, sweat, and tears that keep the industry moving as he takes on some of its toughest jobs: stoker, engineer, server, and bathroom cleaner.
Join HISTORY for the adventure of a lifetime. This is one ride you won’t want to end.
