Thread: History Channel : Boneyard (Railroads)

  1. Default History Channel : Boneyard (Railroads)

    June 28th, 9pm Eastern, on The History Channel :

    "Trains and what happens to them when they reach the end of the line. Included: the dismantling of trains for use as scrap; and train restoration. Also: the uses of all the parts of the entire railway system, including ties and tracks."

    Ran across that show listing a few days ago !! Set up my TiVo to record it !

    The aircraft episode that showed the Tuscon - Davis-Montham AFB boneyard was very interesting, especially after I toured that boneyard !

    Thanks for the tip, gonna record it as well.Another good show on there is the one about the ice road truckers.

    Ice Road Truckers is produced by the same guy who does Deadliest Catch (for Discovery ... you can see the similarities between the shows).

    And yeah, those guys are just as nuts as the fishermen.

    Almost makes several million moving pounds of rolling steel rather tame.

    Saw the commercial for this boneyard deal and it appeared to show a MRL SD45 being cut up. Should be an interesting program none the less!

    I read that the Northern Pacific used to lay RR tracks on the ice across the Missouri River in winter.

    Same here. I hope it doesn't get too graphic for me. Steam under the torch and I may just have to turn off the TV so I don't have nigthmares.
