The series is hosted by real-life Maine train conductor Matt Brown. He’s intense, but fun and has no problem getting his hands dirty in order to become fully involved in the show.

This first season looks at eight of America’s most fascinating locomotives. These include: Coal Trains, Freight Trains, High Speed Trains, the Ice Cold Express, Steam Trains, Overnight Travelers, Circus Trains, and the Transcontinental Railroad.

Each episode brings the viewer inside the world of the men and women who make train travel and transport possible, whether on or off the rails. You also learn about how the industry has evolved over the years and how hi-tech the industry has become since its inception over a century ago.
