    Check your listings, but Modern Marvels on the History Channel this Wed., Sept 20th will be about the history of the freight train. It's on twice that night and again on Saturday morning. I've got the times for Arizona, but it's bound to be different in other areas. I've already got my DVR set.:thumb:

    Just thought you'd want to know.:wave: :wave:

    And the description (Eastern Time) :)
    10:00 PM Modern Marvels: Freight Trains.

    They are the life blood of the American Economy, transporting 1.8 billion tons of freight each year, carrying everything from crops, to consumer electronics, cars to chemicals, not to mention coal and just about any other item that you can think of. This program will take you to what is considered the greatest freight transportation system in the world, the Union Pacific's Bailey yard--a pit stop for much of the nation's freight on its journey across the continent. We'll also explore the history of freight transportation from its humble beginnings as tramways in mines to complex system of rails that stretches to every corner of the nation.
