GRAND CENTRAL

On the morning of January 8, 1902, a southbound commuter train travelling through a smoky, congested tunnel in New York City's Grand Central Depot slammed into the rear of another train, instantly killing seventeen people, and injuring thirty-eight. The tragedy in New York that day, and a self-taught engineer's innovative response to the crisis that ensued, ultimately gave birth to one of America's greatest architectural and technological monuments: Grand Central Terminal. When Grand Central Terminal opened on February 12, 1913 the press heralded it as the greatest railway terminal in the world. Today, it remains one of New York and America's most famous spaces, and a living monument to the nation's great railway age. (From the US) (Documentary)

I did not have a chance to watch it (TRAILS FROM THE EAST: VIETNAM)... was it good?

No takers to answer... I'll do it.

I did watch last 25 minutes.... and it’s not for a diehard railroad fan but it’s a nice window into a different culture with a railroad theme in the background.

Saw the Cambodia episode the other night. I'll never complain about the state of the Etheridge Branch again.

Quite a good series, but the 'stories' can become tedious. Mind you, Cambodia has fairly recent violent history and there were some eye openers amongst the stories being told.

Thailand was last night...some pretty impressive rail infrastructure over there and well maintained. Also a shot of British designed DEMU Sprinters running on the metre gauge...always thought that same design could have been used here in QLD - if there had been a need for it.
