The Indian Pacific Railroad is one of the longest rail journeys in the world. Join the Tracks Ahead crew as they explore Southern Australia. Then visit with an artist John Bromley, examine a large O gauge layout in Washington, DC, and look in on a middle American amusement park, that features a fabulous collection of steam powered trains. This magazine-style series has a unique appeal for train lovers of all ages, for railroading novices as well as experts, as it explores every aspect of the railroads of the world. Now broadcast on more than 200 PBS stations across America, host Spencer Christian (formerly of ABC's Good Morning America) presents the best of steam locomotives, railroad stories, model trains and art. "We're striving for more depth in each episode," said David Baule, executive producer and director of the series. "The stories will intrigue a variety of viewers, while walking a middle line between technical and general information. Our goal is to capture the excitement and history of railroading. We continue to explore everything involved with it, from model trains and museums to collectors and authors."
