    Yeah, there are a couple of train-related shows there. "I love trains" is mostly about Lionel layouts, and the one you're talking about is "Trains and Locomotives". I have the Dish Network DVR with 90 hours of recording capability. I set the recorder for one of these train shows and I've got maybe ten of them recorded. Been doing this for about a year now.

    Also, tonigh is the night that "John Ratzenburger's Made in America" is going to tour the GE locomotive factory. It's on the Travel Channel at 7 PM MST, or 9 PM EST, but check to be sure.
