KQED Plus: Fri, Dec 27, 2013 -- 3:00 AM

This program explores the impact the steam engine had on North America, by visiting 17 of the continent's most historic and scenic tourist steam railroads.

The program also visits Steamtown National Historic Site, provides a first-hand lesson on how a steam engine works, and shows why millions of people each year are drawn to visit and ride steam railways.
