Episode Summary

United States
This 13-part series offers a fascinating look at international train travel. Not only do we get a close-up look at the type of train used and the accommodations offered, but we are able to observe points of interest and various landscapes along the route until we reach our final destination. This segment covers train travel within the United States. In the state of Colorado, cowboys and horses have long since given way to engine-drivers and their "iron horse." The journey begins with a climb to one of the world's highest stations, on the mountain Pikes Peak. The train then thunders downward, passes by Denver and heads in search of gold diggers. We travel along the Loop Railroad, an ancient railway line which winds past old gold mines. The journey ends in Glenwood Springs, where we make a wild journey on the Colorado River.moreless
