Review of America and the Passenger Train

 5 of 5 (1)
Explore America's passenger trains from the 1830's to the first decade of the 21st century.

From wooden coaches to streamlined trains, from dome cars and Santa Fe's high-level trains to Amtrak's Acela Express, this documentary gives an overview of our nation's passenger service.

At one time, America's passenger trains set the standard for rail passenger service in the world. Famous trains, with names like 20th Century Limited, Super Chief, California Zephyr and Daylight, are profiled in this program.

Also included are the American Orient Express and today's GrandLuxe Rail Journeys. Bonus footage shows GrandLuxe Express plus Canada's Rocky Mountaineer and the rail journey through Mexico's Copper Canyon.

This program traces the development of passenger trains that Americans have remembered and cherished for nearly two centuries.
