Your ticket to some of the most thrilling, high-octane train rides in history is here! Extreme Trains 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. Feel the force of railroads in history, and see how railroading is about more than machines, cargo and challenging terrain. From the demolition of Penn Station, to the first train robbers and how the Nazis tried to blow up the rails in World War II, to the human blood, sweat and tears of the stokers, engineers, and bathroom cleaners that keep the industry moving, tag along with Matt on one of history’s most exciting rides. Episodes include Amtrak’s Empire Builder, The Burlington Northern Santa Fe Freight Train, The Norfolk Southern Coal Train, The Ringling Bros. Circus Train, and The Union Pacific Refrigeration Train.

Pleasant Surprise

I downloaded the show not knowing what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised. Its a great look into a relatively forgotten transportation. I found myself hooked and wanting more. The host is great because of his excitment about trains and wanting to share that excitment with the auidence. The show shares historical information so that the audience can appreciate trains more. I really did like this show and would recomend it!

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!

As an avid train lover with a garden railroad under construction, I was absolutely thrilled to see this on I-pod from I-Tunes. History Channel, Modern Marvels (HSC), Discovery Channel and things that are education, interesting and thought provoking truely rule. Thank You and It's worth purchasing!

Great if you like trains!

I thought this was pretty interesting. I like history though. I have a house full of boys who LOVE trains and they thought this was pretty cool!
