Locomotion: The Amazing World of Trains DVD Set
From the "Tom Thumb" to the TGV, climb aboard for a fascinating ride through the history of trains.
- The definitive filmed history of these incredible machines.
- Features visits to railroads throughout the world, including Indian steamers and the Japanese bullet train.
- Ride the rails through history with the Tom Thumb, General and other famous trains.
From the thunderous approach of a grand steamer to the woosh of the Japanese Bullet train, this set captures the visceral appeal of trains with unmatched clarity and fidelity, thanks to DVD technology.
In 1825, transportation was revolutionized by a clumsy little locomotive in England that chugged along at 12 miles per hour. Within a few years, train tracks crisscrossed the planet. LOCOMOTION hurtles down a track of discovery to trace the impact of rail travel on society. It's an epic ride aboard the Iron Horse, with changeovers to the Twentieth Century Limited and Japan's Bullet Train. Archival footage and expert interviews bring the history of trains to life in four exciting programs (on two discs):
- Engines of Enterprise
- Taming the Iron Monster
- The War Machines
- Magic Machines and Mobile People
DVD Features: Interactive Menus; Scene Selection.
Extreme Trains: The Complete Season 1 DVD Set
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.
