Put on your engineer's cap and climb aboard for this delightful trip through the world of train travel. A National Geographic special, the show uses old photos and new film footage to dramatize the romance of the rails. Among the trips are a $3 ride up the sheer face of a mountain and a $5,000 Paris-to-Istanbul journey on the newly refurbished Orient Express.
