  • Extreme Trains: Overnight Traveler

    Trailer

    This train running from Chicago to Seattle is the busiest passenger train in America. The route passes through America's longest tunnel, where Matt finds out how the railroad keeps passengers from choking to death and how to keep the tracks from flooding. In the Cascade Mountains he learns what it takes to keep the rails clear of snow drifts over a dozen feet high. This episode covers how James J. Hill built the Great Northern Railroad and the Wellington avalanche disaster. It features some of America's most beautiful scenery in Montana's Glacier National Park.moreless
  • Extreme Trains: Steam Train

    Trailer

    The Union Pacific's famous 844 steam locomotive, built in 1944, is the longest-running steam train in America. It still runs on UP's mainlines today. Matt rides the 844 on its annual outing, taking 750 rail fans from Denver to the biggest rodeo in the world in Cheyenne, Wyoming. This train is so popular that traffic jams form along the tracks when it runs, as people "chase the train."moreless
