Great Scenic Railway Journeys: Celebrating 175 Years of the American Railroad TVG (CC)
From the frozen tundra of Alaska to the vast high desert of Arizona, the rolling hills of New Hampshire to the Black Hills of South Dakota and the prairies of Canada, railroads helped build North America into the industrial power of the world. Come with us as we take you on a journey unsurpassed in its scenic beauty. Produced in 1080i high definition, this program will visit 17 of North America’s most historic and scenic tourist steam railroads. It is a journey steeped in the history of a great land where steam trains provided raw power to blaze new trails and build the United States and Canada. The clarity of the picture incorporating this latest television technology gives viewers the feeling that they are truly along for the ride. Great Scenic Railway Journeys is proud to chronicle the efforts to preserve and restore the relics of the era of steam. The payoff is that a part of our past continues as living history and comes alive for viewers of this epic steam journey. This program will present the history and the beauty of the land and share in the excitement of those who cherish and preserve the remaining North American tourist steam railroads. Grammy award-winning musician and storyteller David Holt has been our host for Great Scenic Railway Journeys for over a decade.

Step with him back in time for the story of when steam power muscled its way though the steep, rugged terrain of the Alleghenies, the Rockies, the Sierras and onto the Great Plains and into the desert southwest.
