Great Railroad history series
tacmac | Tacoma, WA | 07/03/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The "Tracks Ahead" video series, broadcast by PBS (thru Milwaukee PBS) has 6 or 7 volumes that may still be available as tapes or DVDs. They are WELL worth seeking out for rail fans and historians.
This series features photographers and historians from the latter part of the 20th century. One of these, Jim Fredrickson, a former NP employee, was interviewed for one of the Tracks Ahead collections. In addition, he has written at least 3 excellent photo and essay collections regarding rail history in the Northwest. Amazon is a good place to start for a link to his work:

Also, google "tracks ahead" for many links to the past."

(5 out of 5 stars)

"The theatrical review is dead on, beautiful footage by people who know what they are doing and looks like they love trains. Good for educating young people in what was and in many places the main way in many people get from place to place. A look at the some Worlds great railways that are still operating as passenger service. Enjoy. (this is not past history, it is present (2000's) time. New film 2006."
