Duration: 51:58 STEREO TVG

If you had just one day to spend in one of the world's most beautiful countries, and you wanted to see it in all its stunning variety - field, farm, forest, fjord, mountain and the sea - how would you do it? You'd take Norway's Northern Railway, on a day's journey from Trondheim, across the Arctic Circle, to Bod? on the Atlantic. The Northern Railway: A Journey Across the Arctic Circle takes its viewers on this remarkable trip, seen through every season. From a comfortable seat beside a large window you pass through Norway's incredible scenery and dazzling vistas. We travel north - nearly 500 miles - and at the end, we've seen a gorgeous country in all its rich variety, all in a single day. Along with remarkable scenery and a real sense of journey, the viewer learns the history of The Nordlandsbanen - the Northern Railway - Norway's longest rail line, from Trondheim, near the middle of the country, nearly 500 miles north to Bod?, on Norway's rugged and mountainous Atlantic coast. That history includes a dark chapter - the Nazi extension of the Northern Railway using slave labor after the invasion of Norway in 1940. The Northern Railway: A Journey Across the Arctic Circle will delight travelers - active and armchair - railway buffs and anyone who loves spectacular scenery and stunning vistas around every corner in the land of the Midnight Sun and the Northern Lights.

    • KQED Plus OTA – Optimistically planned maintenance: Fri 12/05 mid-morning

      (DT54.1 thru 54.5) Assuming that the weather and road conditions permit, we plan to do a bit of maintenance on our KQEH transmitter the morning of Friday 12/05… hopefully 10am-11am-ish, but could be a bit later. Most of the work should not affect the outgoing signal, but there will need to be a cable swap […]

    • Mon 11/03/14: Work on KQED Plus tower (DT54)

      Another station needs to do maintenance on its equipment on the tower on Monument Peak, requiring that we switch our DT54 Over the Air signal from the main antenna to the auxiliary when the work starts, then back to the main antenna at the conclusion. These switches should cause momentary outages only, and most receivers […]
