Trains: The Iron Horse DVD
In one of the greatest building achievements in history, the country is joined by a thin ribbon of steel and wood. Watch as two rail companies race to connect the monied East and the promising West. Along the way, fortunes are made, lives lost, and adversity overcome. The building of the transcontinental railroad is the story of the largest, most expensive challenge of the 19th century. And enjoy the story of the fabled giant steam engines -- weighing over 600 tons, carrying over 28 tons of coal and over 25,000 gallons of water, these mega-steam locomotives pulled mile-long trains and did the work of three regular steam engines.
Contents include: Railroads that Tamed the West, Trans-Continental Railroads and When Giants Roamed – The Golden Age of Steam.
