History of American Railroads This comprehensive 2-disc set examines the history of American railroads from the years of steam to the era of diesel. With fabulous photography and spectacular footage, this is a journey you don't want to miss! "The Years Of Steam": "The Golden Age" - In this chapter, we look at classic American steam trains from the 1920s through the 1940s. Journey on such historic railroads as the Central Railroad, the Reading Railroad, the Delaware and Hudson and the Ontario and Western, as we explore the legacy of the golden age of steam. "The Years Of Transition, Part I" - The advent of the diesel locomotive transformed America's railroads. In this chapter, we look at steam during the transitional years of the 1950s. Journey on some fourteen different railroads throughout North American, including the Canadian Pacific, Pennsylvania Railroad, the Baltimore and Ohio, and the New York Central. "The Years Of Transition, Part II" - This chapter takes a further look at the great steam trains of America during the years of transition in the 1950s. Included are some of the historic lumber trains of the far west, the iron ore trains of the Messabi Range in Minnesota, Canadian steam in western Canada and many others. "Twilight Of Steam" - During the 1960s, steam trains began to disappear from the American landscape. By the early 1970s, steam trains were virtually extinct. In this chapter, we look at the twilight of steam as the history of American steam trains comes to a close. "The Era Of Diesel": "The Great Passenger Trains Of The East" - In this chapter, we travel from Illinois to the East Coast on the New York Central, the Penn Central, the Pennsylvania, the B&O, and many others, as we try to recapture the lost glamour of passenger train travel at its best. "The Great Passenger Trains Of The South" - Journey with us to Atlanta, the railroad hub of the South, as we embark on another series of historic passenger train journeys. The Nashville, Chattanooga and St. Louis, and Atlantic Coast Line are just a few of the historic train lines that await us. "The Great Passenger Trains Of The West" - Before the advent of the interstate highway system, westbound passenger trains offered the best means of capturing the great sweeping panoramas of the American West. Come aboard the Rio Grande, the Santa Fe, the Union Pacific, and many others as we relive American train travel in its glory years. "The Transition Years" - In this chapter, we examine the story of America's great railroads during the transition years of the '60s and '70s. This was a difficult time for America's great passenger trains, as one by one, they embarked on their final journeys.
