Experienced globetrotter Chris Tarrant is fascinated by train travel: How the engines and tracks were built, how they are kept running and how they revolutionised remote communities. Join him as he explores some of the oldest and most stunning railway routes through the world's toughest terrains.
Along the way there are breakdowns and unexpected detours. Why did a planned two-day journey through the Congo actually take six days? Why has the original Adelaide to Darwin railway, which took 100 years to complete, now been largely abandoned? Why did the Konkan railway require 92 tunnels and 2,000 bridges?
Drivers, engineers and locals explain all as Chris enjoys some truly unforgettable and treacherous train rides.
