Last night a special on freight trains on Modern Marvels. This morning a special on engineering projects that built the railroads, such as the Moffat Tunnel, the Chunnel, an Eatern viaduct and other constructions. Both presentations interesting, informative and miles away from the Gee-Whizz attitude of Extreme Trains. It saeems we have a resurgence of interest in trains, possibly due to their emphasis in a changing economy? I predict - and you saw it here first - that a new "cop show" will debut shortly starring an investigative agent(s) for one of the major lines such as UP, investigating theft, sabotage, accidents and terrorist attempts while capturing the railroad and scenery in living color. NCIS on rails! New concept, great advertising fior the railroads - imagine all the "infomercial" material the star could inject under the guise of instructing a colleague - and great ratings if done properly.
