    Presidential Trains
    Hop on board these vehicles of hope and promise, and sometimes bearers of death and despair. Ride the rails as the chief executive journeys into America's heartland.

    Ride shotgun along with the folks who protect trains, passengers, and cargo on American railways.

    That's a pretty good series- sad thing is there are no more of them. For better or worse, the History Channel replays them continuously. Which is OK, I guess- I've managed to tape them all.
    If you haven't seen them, check 'em out!

    Why do they always run it when I'm sleeping? Guess I have another reason to call in sick!

    Has anyone seen the program about how the railways built Canada? Some BoZo chincing on production costs peppered the series with Union Pacific shots. We had a good laugh at a Chinese track gang that was supposed to be in Ontario.

    That's where a VCR set to tape the program comes in handy. The downside to that is you also wind up taping all the commercials. The upside is you have it to watch later ( you can always fast-forward thru the crap to get to the good stuff).
