    Apparently, the History Channel will have a show on locomotives tonight at 8:00 (I think it's EDT). They'll have everything from American steam locos (I heard that they will feature the Strasburg RR in PA!) to ultra-fast modern French trains.

    Sounds really good!

    Here's the description:

    Someone just gave us an old VCR so I'm going to try to buy some VHS tapes tonight -- if you can still get them ! :eek:

    Yes, the show right after looks interesting too.

    One day, I'll get a Tivo! I just finished setting up an old VCR so it's ready to tape in 20 minutes or so! Cheers, Rob

    Ralph Remember...it's for fun!

    Just finished watching. I liked it. Nice info on the EMD shop.
    Something in the show for just about everyone...

    Dang! New TV guides from the newspapers give no details.
    Is it on again?

    I thought it was very disappointing - virtually the entire focus of the show was on diesels, ignoring the developing history of the nation's railroads in the process.

    I thought it was good :) :) The part on the Strasburg was good.. I was in that engine once... Rode behind it a lot!!!

    Never rode in the engine though :(

    Nice watching it run!!

    I had the good fortune of riding in the cab (along with several others...) of a 2-8-2 in San Luis Potosi (Mexico) that was touring the country in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Mexico City-Laredo RR line.It was being taken from the display tracks to the shops....What a ride...!!

    Arggh ! :eek: It wasn't on our Canadian History Channel, at least not at 8:00 p.m. I must have found some US listings and our Cdn History Channel must have a different schedule. Maybe I'll search their site or even ask them. Or maybe I could buy it on DVD? Rob

    Yes, that's what we had as well -- although I enjoy watching WW2 fighter planes and dogfights as well! :mrgreen:

    I really would like to see this Train show though. I'll probably search the History Channel website to see if or when it might be on in Canada.
